    Sounds like the classic plastic against metal squeak. The thin material they put on the plastic in the areas it contacts the metal probably shifted. That doesn't make it any less annoying but hopefully they'll be able to fix it easily.

    The problem with Cadillac is that their cars are based on the needs and values of the demographics of their customers from the last 10 years.

    No 80-yr old can hear that squeak therefore there is no need by Cadillac to find a solution for this in their cars.

    I hope the demographics change with the ATS...

    Classic GM build quality.

    What do you expect for 'only' $48,566.68? But it did come with an iPad, woohoo!

    Another reason why buying American is stupid.

    Geez people, the early production runs had an issue, GM has a TSB to fix this, the later ones have been corrected during build. All it needs is a couple of metal door clips replaced with updated parts, a 10 minute fix. I don't think this qualifies banishing the vehicle to the heap list as some have suggested. FYI.... I own one and enjoy it so far.
