I had an excellent experience at this dealership. The sales associate Armando was professional and was not pushy. I would recommend this dealership and Armando in particular, if you really wants to get the best possible deal. The finance did not took long, was quick and satisfactory on time and readiness.

Do not buy this car new, it is worth nothing after 2 years. 2 years old, 39k miles and it's worth 14k? 50% depreciation in two years with a warranty! This car was great when it was new, but after 39k miles the build quality begins to show. I've had multiple repairs on the interior. Suspension is creaking, whistling noise from the wheels. Lots of road noise. Unusable Bluetooth phone over 30 mph. Thought this car was a great value compared to BMW and Mercedes, it isn't. You are not winning. This is a chevy cruise with a Cadillac badge and more powerful engine. The transmission is garbage, and I could never average more than 22.7 mpg. Terrible from a 4 cylinder. I traded it in for an Infiniti Q50, got the same payment and tons of technology. Not to mention 300hp V6 that gets better mpg. I could not be happier to get rid of this car. It's beautiful but a piece of junk. I gave America a chance again and was again disappointed. The technology you get and then build quality from the Japanese luxury cars is crazy when you compare prices. Don't be tricked into thinking this car is a good deal.

Bought this car new and it has been blowing hot air in my face since i got it...WITH THE AIR TURNED OFF! Brought it back to the dealer multiple times for them to tell me it's supposed to be like that...that all of them blow with the unit off and mine just ended up on the worst end of the spectrum...the car blows HOT air directly in your face while driving...shut the vents and it blows harder out the open vent or through the feet/ defroster. Called Cadillac up and put in a claim and they have stated that because the dealer says it's fine they can't do anything...so basically I'm stuck with a 50k POS. Should have bought a Mercedes...DO NOT BUY! i had mechanics that work for cadillac tell me it's not right but because they hook it up to a computer and it says it's fine they can't do anything...RIDICULOUS! BUYER BEWARE!

I have the 2014 2.0T RWD Performance version of the ATS. In the 14k miles and year and a half of ownership of this vehicle there have numerous quality issues with the car (see list below). Seems GM spent most of the development money on Chassis Tuning on the ATS and let everything else slip. Others seem to have more luck than I have, but should you really have to get lucky to get one of the "good" ones when purchasing a new vehicle? Buyer Beware. Piston Failure (twice ~7k and ~14k miles) Electric Power Steering Failure replaced at ~14k miles Advanced Forward Light misaligns headlights and point high - No fix from Cadillac Driver's Side Motor Mount broke Navigation poor performance, stutters while reading direction and very long start up time - Fix from Cadillac was only set to read at Med or Low Speed CUE poor responsiveness - No fix from Cadillac Driver's Side Power Recliner required replacement Driver's Side Side Mirror required replacement for broken heating element Rear window defroster slow to heat up after recall implemented HVAC repair for noisy linkage - Also blows cold air until engine warms up Mileage has been no where near advertised at ~18 mpg

This is my first Cadillac after over a decade driving Mercedes-Benz C class. I drive on average 40,000 miles per year and typically buy a new car every other year (leasing is too expensive for that many miles). Compared to my last Mercedes (2012 C250 Sport) the ATS is more powerful, better handling and has better seats, at least in front. With the amount of miles I drive, a comfortable drivers seat is the first thing I look at, and the ATS seat is the best I've had yet with the possible exception of the 2005 C230 Sport sedan, which wasn't as adjustable, but was perhaps a slight bit better shaped, especially at the headrest.

The seat is extremely firm and very well bolstered. It also has an extendable thi support that really makes the difference (I extend mine outward one detent (it has three). The side bolsters and lumbar are inflatable and a lot smoother and better shaped than those in more recent C Class seats, though the 2005 again was just as good or better, though non adjustable for the side bolsters.

Ride matches the seats, very firm, but compliant. I prefer a stiff ride so long as it isn't punishing, and Cadillac has about the best balance in this car of anything I've ever owned. Recent Mercedes C Class is a bit smoother, but the ATS has sharper handling and steering.

Brakes are outstanding, with Brembo by Cadillac branded brakes up front and smaller disc brakes in the rear. I took a very twisty mountain road Thursday night and drove quite aggressively, but the brakes never faded, never squealed and always scrubbed off speed with serious authority. These brakes are far better than anything on any car I've ever owned, and equal to those on my friend's Porsche Cayman.

The interior styling is just beautiful. It has many traditional Cadillac styling cues with the slender vertical tail lights especially appealing, but everything is tidy, compact and modern. This is a Cadillac, but a youthful, enthusiast Cadillac. I love the way this car looks inside and out.

The CUE system is perhaps my only complaint. This system is totally touch-screen based which is very nice, pretty and functional, so long as the car is parked or you are in the passenger seat. It is awkward to use while driving, but fortunately most functions can be accessed by the steering wheel controls and the phone's mute button also works to mute the stereo. I liked the Comand System in the Mercedes better, but once you spend a bit of time and learn the steering wheel controls and voice activated access the system is less annoying, though still not idea. I would much prefer old fashioned knobs and buttons, but it isn't a deal breaker.

The instruments are okay, nothing incredible. There is a three-section LCD at the bottom that is extremely useful, with each of the three sections configurable for anything from trip computer to navigation, fuel economy or diagnostics. The only real complaint I have is that the tachometer is pushed to the far left, and in aggressive driving can be obscured by the steering wheel or drivers hands. This would be a bigger problem in a manual transmission car, but on my automatic it isn't too bad.

The back seat is small, quite a bit tighter than my last C Class. I'm 5'9" and like to sit a bit further back than normal for my height when driving. I can still fit in the backseat behind my driving position, but foot and knee room is minimal. I could ride back there for an hour or three, but a longer trip wouldn't be comfortable. The backseat itself is terrific though, with great lower back and thigh support and the same firm padding as the front seats.

The interior is also very well trimmed in very nice leather, thick carpeting and real metal (aluminum in my car), wood or carbon fiber. Panel gaps are even and everything feels very well put together. The window sticker advertises a hand cut and sewn interior, and I believe it, with quality at least equal to my last 2012 Mercedes and better than the 2009 or 2005 that I owned previously, or my wife's Lexus for that matter.

Fuel economy is a bit disappointing so far. I've put just over 1,000 miles on the car in the week I've owned it and my last long drive (270 miles) returned 27 MPG. It was mostly highway driving at 80 to 85 MPH, but the C250 would return 30MPG on that same drive. Maybe it I'll improve as the car breaks in. City driving so far gives me just under 20MPG, where the C250 woud give 23. This car has only a 6 speed automatic compared to Mercedes' 7 speed, plus the car has a good 70 more horsepower, so I can't complain.

It's early days yet with the ATS, but so far, I'm impressed.

I have had this car for 15 months. 3 recalls new brakes new tires rear end alignment You should really think about going somewhere other than Cadillac because this is a troubled model. The room inside is terrible. The dealership surely will let you know that you bought the wrong car. They really should not call this a Cadillac.

I was asked by Emunds to update my review. I still think that the ATS is very good "road car". I took it on a few road trips and it is very good on the road. Excellent gas mileage at the steady-state. I wasn't sore or tired at the end. I have had some disappointing developments. I had a stuck throttle that caused the car to stall on me. I had some previous hesitation on accelerating out of a turn with the A/C on. I kinda thought that was "normal(?)". It was a stuck throttle. Interestingly, I can rate the acceleration higher. Also, the dealer disabled the automatic rear window defroster because of a defective part. I inquired if they were going get a "fix" for that. Apparently they are not. The car is too costly to have Cadillac removing a feature that in my view is a plus and very desirable. I am afraid that I may look at the other cars I looked over when I got this car more closely in the future. As part of my update #2, the "road trip" factor is still great. I am about 6' and I don't feel cramp. I can see all round very well. I am thinking that Consumers Reports is not being fair with their reliability rating. At 25K, the car still starts instantly even after setting up for a few days. Everything works fine except for an occasional engine "hang up." When I have the air on and I accelerate aggressively, the engine will rev at about 4,000 to 5,000 rpm. I remove my foot from the accelerator and it stays there. I am wondering if this is something I should report to the NTSB. I take it to the dealer and they get no codes.

The sharp exterior styling brought me to this car, and the great salesman got me to drive off with it. I've had this car for 12months (16K miles) now and have run into one issue after another...A blowout from the run-flat tires was the first issue. I paid $400 for a new tire because they said it was road-hazard. Then the USB ports stopped charging. Then the car threw up a check engine light (code P0023) dealer replaced a fuel solenoid. One month later, threw up another check engine (code P0021) dealer replaced fuel solenoid in Bank B. It's been a week, and now the car is idling rough and lacking power. No engine codes...YET.

Love this car. Bought it in March. Looks sharp and people notice it. It has serious pick up and speed and excellent handling. The CUE is a little cumbersome but overall not that difficult to use. Definitely a smaller car, you're not going to be able to fit a lot of people in it, but overall it gets the job done.

After my crash, on August 11, 2014, I have found several other ATS owners that experience the same exact issue..I am the only one to suffer injuries, crash and totaled my car. What is GM or the tire manufacture or these Safety Org. waiting for someone to die. I almost lost my life my 16 daughter was in the car with me...my husband almost lost his wife and daughter, and my son almost lost his mother and sister.

I had Cadillacs my whole life. I had a skid with Infinti from 2011 to 13. Probably my best 3 years of driving, I went back to Cadi because i believed they were making a better car and the deal was also inviting. But the continuing problems surface every month. The quality is sub par to those imports. Craftmanshift is very poor. The look of the ATS performance is outstanding as the handling. I made a mistake of getting the 2.0. It has no punch from the gate. Aside all the fun this CAR has to offer. Its in the shop once a month for something. I lost the power steering once, not a good experiance. I even lost the dashboard lights,gauges.Going in now 4 mildew smell in AC, its killing me. UPDATE: ON JULY 2015 GM REPURCHASED THE VEHICLE BACK UNDER THE LEMON LAW. INTOTAL THE VEHICLE WAS IN SERVICE FOR OVER 26 different issues aND OVER 45 days. JUST LIKE THE COMMERCIAL This CERTAINLY ISNT LIKE MY FATHERS CADILLAC. THEY WERENT KIDDING

I fell in love with the car during the test drive because of the technology and the styling of the interior. Unfortunately, that ended the first time I tried to have a friend ride in the back seat. If you're over 5'-9", there's no way an adult can ride behind you. If they had added 4 inches of leg room, I'd love this car. I don't know why they didn't just make this a 2-seater. I may end up trading it in for something larger.

I previously posted my initial impressions of the ATS and here are some thoughts after another 5K miles on the odometer: Now that the engine has some miles on it, the fuel economy has improved to meeting or exceeding EPA numbers. Expect 30-33 MPG on the highway and 20-22 in town. This car needs premium gas. Lower grades will dull performance and increase fuel consumption considerably. I still miss real buttons and knobs on the CUE system but its no reason not to buy the car. The small 10cu feet trunk is enough for a road trip for two but no more than that.

exceeds my expectation

I have had the a t s Luxury 4wheel drive 3.6 for nearly 3 weeks now, it is amazingly fast. Very tight and sporty, the steering wheel is a little small compared to the 2006 Lexus 330 i traded for it and a totally different ride, but a great ride just the same a lot of fun to drive. i like the safety of Onstar, assistance systems for parking and backing. The Cue system does not work 100% well with my iPod..but it does work most of the time, by plugging into the usb port which tucked into the storage area in the dash board, which opens by gently swiping your finger on the bottom of the compartment. the downside of the C U E system is of course finger prints.

After owning four consecutive 3 series BMWs I found myself unhappy with the latest model. The new 3 seemed not as well posed or as much fun to drive as the past models and had grown to nearly the size of the old 5 series. This where the Cadillac ATS is the perfect fit. It wonderfully direct steering, a stiff chassis and the perfect balance of sporty handling and comfort. There has been much talk about the CUE system and, while not as easy to use as other, it is perfectly usable once you get used to it. Fuel economy is not meeting its EPA estimate but that may have something to do with the way I drive it.
