I just saw this post and had to comment. The reason that you may be experiencing this is a lot of people are just not aware that Cadillac as done anything different. To explain: before I bought mine I did some parking lot shopping and later a test drive. Before the test drive I was in love with the styling of the CTS coupe and not so much with the sedan and my mind seem to be made up. I had seen the ATS but at first site it just looked like a smaller CTS sedan. Anyway one day I was driving and noticed what I thought was a very nice black and more sporty CTS sedan. Wrong! I drove along side of it and noticed it was the ATS by its front LEDs and THEN noticed the rest of the differences . That's when I fell in love and knew I was buying one. I have had many compliments on it at work, or someone usually comes in the office and comments on how nice it is, but only one guy at a gas station said "that's the new ATS isn't it? Beautiful car man! " Most people just think it is another CTS or similar because the rear looks so similar at first glance and a lot of people are unaware that it is an all new car at all. Just to add, I seem to be getting a little more attention since adding the rear wing spoiler.Quote:

While I wasn't there, it was nice to hear.
Nice to see another former Avy owner on here R&R! Yea my friends were all texting me saying dont get rid of the truck, when I was on my way to trade her in. I had her since day one and it was pretty tough to do it, but definitely loving the ATS. I have a golf tournament next Friday so we will see how much I will be missing the Avalanche, not sure how my clubs are going to fit yet lol.
Yeah, I miss the Avy sometimes, but only when I have something large or dirty that needs to be transported. Now I just order more offline . LOL! No but I love the caddy now and don't miss the $70 to $100 fill ups especially. Also love the way the ATS handles the corners on my daily drive. Good luck at the golf tournament next week. I am 99% sure the clubs will fit.Quote:

I get all kinds of stares and thumbs up in my ATS. I have been asked a few questions about it and have been told "I love your Caddy" a lot.
Today, a gentleman in a Bentley Continental Convertible gave me a thumbs up!
I try to keep my eyes on the road...
Have had my opulent blue for only a month and I've seen several people stare a bit, but no one has complimented it.Quote:
