    ATS wow!.

    GM has finally started making some exciting cars.
    I'm driving the ATS 2.5 l4. With the CUE & navi.
    The driving is excellent, seats ate as well. A small car in the outside but very roomy inside, me, my wife & 3 kids with 2 car seats have more room are space compare to 2007 srx4 we currently drive.
    Fuel economy is excellent and decent power when needed.
    At $45550.00 Canadian equipped with some options. I believe is bargain, considering the level of luxury, performance, technology and a green footprint the ATS has. It should in the shopping list(priority) ofany potential buyer looking for this attributes in car vehicle.
    I'm going to miss this vehicle's dynamics. Have to return it in 3 days.

    I'm not sure about the 3 kids and 2 car seats and plenty of room but I will agree about the rest of your post. The ATS is not a family car but its great as a luxury sports sedan.

    Hi JSATS, I'm not sure if you have been behind the wheel of the ATS, But it is deceiving, I was not sure about the space until the cars seats were installed, as a matter of fact this back seat is large and mote comfortable than the SRX(2007..
    But you are right it is a great "family luxury sport car". You should take one for a spin, if you havenot done so.

    ----------

    Hi Sarah-Cadillac customer care-. I'm ordering one by the end of June as my "toy".
    As was going to get an used Honda s2000. The dynamics are similar. So why not plus I get to take my wife & kids on a Sunday drive.
    Thank GM for finally building cars we want to actually buy.

    Is that a '71/'72 Nova?

    My mom had one that I drove a lot when I turned 16, so much that it was almost my own personal daily driver. It was a bright yellow-gold with a white vinyl top. It was a pretty basic car with drum brakes all around that lacked power assist, but it did have power steering, forget about any air conditioning or power anything. It did have a 307 cu. in. (5 liter) V8 that was rated at 200 HP and had 0-60 times pushing double digits, but I loved that car. Many fond memories of it. Funny how time makes you forget all about how crude those cars were compared to the modern day.

    I was wondering the same thing! I love the car but almost didn't get one because when my wife and 2 kids were in the car with 2 cars eats , it was pretty tight! Then I figured 95% of the time it's just me and it's only a 3 year lease so I can go bigger eventually.
