    Haven't seen another ATS

    I just find it kind of strange.....I started looking at them over 2 months ago and got mine a month ago, but haven't seen another in the buffalo area since I started looking! Maybe they're not moving too well?

    They were also really sparse around Toronto, but I am seeing more now. Was in South Florida in April, and I saw lots of them there!

    Re: Haven't seen another ATS

    The ATS has a 70% conquest rate (which is unheard of) has boosted Cadillac Sales to record highs-- enough that it nearly beat Audi in March for overall sales, and has propelled the brand to one of the fastest growing in North America.

    It still sold only 1/3 as many F30 3 series however.

    If you want to start eyeballing other examples of the same car before it's even 1 MY old, I would suggest a Honda Accord, but trust the numbers, it's selling well.

    Re: Haven't seen another ATS

    To date I have seen only 2 ATS's on the road and both within 20 minutes of each other. I live in the Bay Area where luxury cars outnumber civics. I'm surprised by the lack of ATS's around but to be honest I'm glad. Having a BMW, Lexus, Mercedes or pretty much any other luxury car means little in a sea of them.

    If you live here you know what I mean. If not then you would be amazed at the number of BMW's, Mercedes, Lexus, Etc. there are on the road in the bay area. When I moved here 15 years ago I simply could not believe the amount of 40K+ cars on the road. Only in LA would I think you could find more.

    In Toronto/GTA, I've seen maybe 5-6 ATS. Since winter ended, I've seen a good amount of CTS and SRX on the roads.

    i live in LA and ATS is pretty rare. which is exacty why i got one. buying a bmw or benz or lexus or g37 is being just another brick in the wall.

    Re: Haven't seen another ATS

    They were pretty rare in the NY Metro Area for a while. I felt like the lone soldier. TONs of CTSs/V-Coupes that I never noticed until I started driving a Cadillac. Now I'm starting to see ATSs more often. I give 'em a quick high beam flash to say "hey man, nice choice!". I did have a few incidents where guys in BMWs cut me off pretty badly, I have a BMW still, but even I admit some BMW drivers are just a-holes. Anyway, they are definitely getting less rare here. Common, eh not yet.

    Also in Toronto, have seen only 2 ATS in the last 3 months or so. Dealer told me they were literally flying off the lot and all of his new sales were factory orders due to lack of stock. So...go figure!

    Re: Haven't seen another ATS

    I have had my ATS since December; didn't see any others for some time, but lately, here in Des Moines, I've seen quite a few; had the same experience here with the the CTS (2008 on...) when it first was available. The 3 series BMWs are a 'dime a dozen' around here; nice to have something unique, at least for awhile...

    Re: Haven't seen another ATS

    There's someone else at work who has one. Starting seeing it in the parking lot about a month ago.
    I don't think they've washed it since they bought it. It's filthy.
    I try not to park anywhere near it.

    Here in Miami they are everywhere. I see minimum 2 daily. Plus I live 1 block from Williamson Cadillac so I see the 2.5 rental ATS's all the time...
