Im quite tall, its expected. but when i get back in it and start sliding it back the motor on the seat sounds like its ready to give up the ghost. very whiny sounding. anyone elses?
    Hello greezychef,

    I am sorry to hear that your seat is making these sounds. Did you bring this up to the service department when you were at the dealership? Is your ATS working fine after having the tpms reset? You can reach out to me via private message if you would like to further discuss this concern. Thank you very much for your time.

    Same here... Does nothing when I want it to tilt.

    it will not ever "tilt" but, you can pull it out or push it in.(closer to your head, or farther away)

    Someone needs to make a video. lol.

    Honestly this is the best headrest on any vehicle Ive ever had. it goes right where i need it to perfectly.

    Just went to the garage and tried your method. And it worked! As I said somewhere else on here ... you learn something new about the car every day.

    Thanks very much GJB. I now officially have no complaints about the car.

    Re: Most common complaints.

    I don’t have any of the “common” complaints that I’ve read in these forums. I had one, tapping in the HVAC system, but that was fixed last winter. My only complaint remaining is my car’s tenacious resistance to engage Sport mode. During over 8k miles I’ve felt the change in transmission logic and PAL for a total of about 30 seconds. Since that one time – nothing – no matter how hard I push it. (Not that it isn’t fun to drive hard in Touring, though.) Bert

    Re: Most common complaints.

    I found that the headrest was too far forward but after reading through here next time I am in the car I will fix that!

    I have absolutely no complaints with my ATS, I am so happy with the 6 speed manual and the Magnetic Ride Control. I love how aggressive the LEDS look when I'm driving around and it's just an amazing drive all around. I did come from a 2009 Cobalt SS to the ATS so the interior is like the Taj Mahal compared to the Balt but that Balt was a fun little car to drive especially unsuspecting cars that didn't know what it was. haha

    Re: Most common complaints.

    Iím having an annoying issue with the factory all-weather floor mats. My right heel slides as Iím driving so I have to keep moving my foot. I ended up taking the all-weather mat out of the driver side and using the carpet mat to correct the issue. At some point Iím planning to modify the all-weather mat so that my heal stays in place.
