    Re: Trembling at idle

    Well bluhaven. Muffin here I been in lemon law over a month now and nothing yet I want out also but no progress. I have made all my 5 payments like a good joe but nope nothing yet from GM to this date I have never in my 40 years of driving cars been in a situation as tough as this for a car.atsgirl we feel your pain

    ----------

    Laura we have may every effort to be patient and we are sure reading these are not pleasant and should not be going on in a luxury brand. So we see all the replies and yet I sent you a private email about the ECM update and yet no reply back.WHY?we want this CAR OF THE YEAR to exceed but there comes a time for the big boys and big girls of GM to fix it or get us relief.Saftey and reliability is the ultimate goal of any automobile company I would think.Laura give us a hint on where do we go from here

    ----------

    Also I have a inside source to network TV (last resort)in my area he is willing to post a story about This car if I and others can't get out of this situation.that being said i am having at 11am on 8/14/2013 a car expert to drive my ATS to confirm my troubles.then we will proceed I hope to a resolution and closure for myself ATSGIRL and others affected.any suggestions or comments would be appreciated Laura or Greg

    ----------

    Hang in there atsgirl

Just made my 4th car payment and once again I am not in posession of the car. Spent HOURS on the phone with GM, they just keep telling me to get the data recorder installed, "thats all we can do for you at this time". Meanwhile I'm stalling out all over metro Detroit. I am afraid I am going to get hurt. I want out of this lease immediately. I guess I need to keep following the steps until someone can help me. Today for the first time in the 7 times its been in for service I was given an ATS as a loaner. I knew right away my car was junk - this car is amazing to drive, smooth as silk, no shaking and feels SAFE. Why couldnt that have happened to me the first time I shelled out all of this money for a new car sitting on the side of the freeway? Heartbreaking.....
    Hi ATSGIRL,

    If you provide me with your case number, I am more than happy to review your case. You can private message me so you do not have to make that public. I do understand your frustration and concern for your safety with this issue and apologize for the trouble you are going through.

    Regards,

    Laura M.

    Just a comment: Once a customer initiates a lemon law procedure it is normal for the regular problem resolution process to grind to a halt. Thanks for letting us know that what happens to you at this point is NOT what those who haven't started Lemon Law proceedings should expect. So there is no misunderstanding, I am not saying or implying you shouldn't be going the Lemon law route, just that it changes the relationship between you and Cadillac as any legal proceedings would.

    Also I have a inside source to network TV (last resort)in my area he is willing to post a story about This car if I and others can't get out of this situation.that being said i am having at 11am on 8/14/2013 a car expert to drive my ATS to confirm my troubles.then we will proceed I hope to a resolution and closure for myself ATSGIRL and others affected.any suggestions or comments would be appreciated Laura or Greg
    I think that is a good thing although it may not help you personally because of what I said above. i.e. the Lemon Law judge/arbitrator won't care about a local news article and Cadillac may just let the LL process run its course. Once legal gets involved involvement by others in the company tends to complicate things (legally). I am VERY interested in seeing if Laura, et al do ACTIVELY stay involved when a LL case such as yours that has already been filed.

    Ford had a situation with Chinese built manual transmissions in Mustangs. Some owners reported they would not go into gear and left people in danger with traffic bearing down on them when they pulled onto a freeway or started thru an intersection. That appeared to be more common than the rough idle probem with all ATS engines. The NTHSA did an investigation and ABC showed an interest in doing a national piece on it but it ended up falling thru. Someohow Ford managed to convince the NHTSA that it was driver error which meant the government is no help. LoL

    Let us know how the news article goes. And I hope you filed your lemon law case at the right time and really hope you get a satisfactory resolution.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Laura, how does a formal lemon law filing like Muffin stated affect what you do? I know some manufacturers' customer service reps disengage once the lawyers are involved.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    FWIW, they fixed the rough idle problem on my car when I took it in for service. It appeared to be on their list of standard things to do for all vehicles like mine (2.0 turbo).

    Re: Trembling at idle

    HoosierDaddy, in your informative reply to ATSGirl, you made reference to "...the rough idle probem with all ATS engines." Did you really mean "all"? If so, how come most of us don't have this problem...luckily, at the present time? Not looking to be critical, just want to be sure this is what you meant.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    About the upping of the RPM Laura maybe I missed it just trying to help. Thanks for not disengaging me I do appreciate that I really do

    ----------

    Flycaster the majority is the 2.5l. I was able to get a loaner 2.0l and wasn't a issue because GM was able to fix it as far as I can tell.as for the 3.6. Haven't seen many complaints.i was hoping knowingthat the turbo seems better that GM would help me obtain this we shall see

    ----------

    Thanks mcaffey

    ----------

    Well if it comes to that then it will be held in front of my cadillac dealer lol. Really don't need to go there if GM would assist ASAP.

    ----------

    What sxxxs is I really like this car. Decent gas mileage if I didn't have to stop I wouldn't be in this forum and if cue wouldn't lose my signal all the time. Other than those issues this car to me would be a number 1 choice

    Sorry to be unclear. I meant all variations (2.5, 2.0 and 3.6), not every one of each built. There are reports in the forums from 2.5 owners, 2.0 owners and 3.6 owners about rough idling. I haven't heard about an adjustment yet for the 3.6s.

    Since we mere customers don't have access to all the facts we have to speculate. If I had to bet, I think there is some part in wide use that is not exactly as it was speced or not exactly like the counterpoints used in pre-production testing. That would explain how the problems make it into production and why only some cars are affected. Raising the idle may be a band-aid that negates the effects of the variation. That may be very acceptable. But it doesn't fix all the rough running problems and owners like ATSGirl probably have a completely different problem.
