    Exactly, i drive my car fairly hard at times and we see cold temps in winter and 100 degree temps in summer so its just a little cheap insurance in my opinion. $25 for a Mobil1 jug and $6 for AC Delco filter, its easy to change too.

    Hi David,

    I am glad your first year of ownership with your ATS has been positive and you are loving your Cadillac and its features! Continue to enjoy your ride. If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Best Regards,

    Laura M.

    re: oil change limits and oil breakdown

    why not trust instead of believe?
    send an oil sample off to blackstone labs http://www.blackstone-labs.com/free-test-kits.php

    Chris i'm a parts manager at a dealership myself, i'll be adding power and want my car to be as protected as possible so changing it a little early is worthwhile in my opinion.

    Decided finally on wheels tonight, same ones i've been looking at since SEMA. 18" TSW Sochi in gunmetal with mirror cut face. They aren't out until January/February but i got the tires coming already. Will order the wheels tomorrow, just want to see if they have a 18x8.5 before i get the 18x8 +35.

    Man I just graduated from the U of A and I bought an ATS... Nice to see someone from not too far away from where I went to school.. It's just too bad I can't stunt in it in Fayetteville as I no longer live there

    I got it from Cadillac of Bentonville since its owned by the same people that own the Nissan dealership i work at. If you went from Dickson Street to Austin TX you aren't missing out on any partying lol.
