    What is your another car?

I appreciate the compliments but why is this car a hit with the homeless?

    Hi Ben. My other car is a '64 Thunderbird convertible, which I've owned for 26 years so far.

I mean people would want me to open that car up and show it to them. But my ATS... Nada. I think it's a sexy car, so I don't get the lack of attention. When it was in for service I got complements on the CTS loaner! What gives?
    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.

    Finally.... I let a friend borrow the car to drive to a real estate showing. He was showing a wearhouse. Turns out the buyer wants to store a classic car collection in it. He noticed the ATS and wanted to see it inside and out. He raved about the car, on and on. This was an incredible complement coming from an enthusiast and collector. 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.

    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!

    Have had my opulent blue for only a month and I've seen several people stare a bit, but no one has complimented it.

    Re: Has anyone complemented your ATS?

    it's definitely not the reason that I bought it, but mine turns heads and gets complimented at almost every fill up stop...
    that said...i always smile LARGE when I see my reflection in a shiny building of me in my all black Caddie
