    @Muffin,
    Sounds good and I hope you get your car fixed at least. With so many complaints so far, Cadillac/GM have done nothing about it. So, at this point, I am really skeptical that they will do anything about it unless something dramatic like TV coverage happens. Oh well, please let everyone know how it turns out for you.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Greetings All,

    I am an 2.5 ATs owner since late July, and like many others I am also experiencing this terrible issue. It's embarrassing to have people ride my car sometimes. This is my first Cadillac and also the most expensive car I have ever owned. All of the other cheaper cars I have owned previously have never had an issue like this. The rough idle seems to vary in severity consistent to what others have described with one exception. My car has actually stalled 3 times now, and each time was at a stop light as soon as I left my foot off the break. I have been to the dealer once and had another appointment this coming Tuesday. The first time they said they installed an update for the rough idle, but nothing changed. I went back today to make the appointment and they said that another update is now able to be installed that should fix the issue. I am flabbergasted that such an expensive luxury car would have such a 'basic' issue.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    I just bought my 2013 ATS 2.0T 6spd. It stalls at a minimum 2 times a day now. I drive about 120 miles a day. It doesn't have the shakes and trembles like everyone else's. It just dies. Coming to a stop from higher speeds to an off ramp or just slowing to turn into a parking lot. It is very annoying and embarrassing when I have the radio up high and don't realize it stalled....

    Re: Trembling at idle

    I just ran up to my dealer. The service writer showed me on his screen the update that was installed on my car before it left the plant to prevent the rough idle. A new update is to prevent stalling. I am glad I got the gap insurance.....

    Has anyone gone through lemon law procedures for this issue?

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Yea so far a snow job. Because of all the complaining and then the service dept look at us like we have 2 heads.this is the only car that I have had back to a dealer multiple times are kidding me 50k.i spent 18k in 2002 for a stinking Chrysler and was in the shop once for a recall.i am embarrassed to have my friends in the car now since I was questioned on why my new car of the year was idling so bad and my cue sys couldn't hold a radio station. Pretty bad I say

    ----------

    Yes I am in the process right now

    ----------

    It's the only way. I have try the cadillac service reps and well they tried but not enough there hands are tied.believe me bypass and go lemon.

    ----------

    But once you do. Cadillac customer service reps are now out of the picture.the Laura's and Greg,s try there best it's not there fault and they have a Hugh amount of patience considering all the issues.i wish it wasn't the case but it is what it is

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Yup still going because GM can't fix it so far.what sucks is this issue been since jan.are GM engineers really paying attention.what really pisses me off is that no codes so no fix.no diagnosis at all.one thing of very high interest for me the V6 hasn't been a major complaint.so maybe they accomplish the correct idles or whatever to make that smooth is this the case?

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Muffin, Remember it is a 6 which should be smoother than a 4 by nature. Also there was not much to do with the 6 because it's been around a while and is in other GM cars CTS, SRX, Lacrosse and Camaro to name a few. . I noticed minor variations in HP between applications but that's all in the tune/config.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    yeah honestly the trembling didn't bother me so much as my cobalt did it to. But it really did get worse and even stalled when I put my stock air box back in for the day.

    I've found my 2.0T did this with the dealer's tank of gas (not sure of the brand) when I drove it off the lot. I've found that a tank of Exxon gas makes this rumble at start up worse and suspect they used Exxon gas (it's right next to the dealership) but not sure. It calmed down with other brands (I've tried Shell and BP). I've only used premium so far, just went over 1K miles. Make sure you are using "Top Tier" as recommended (unless you're leasing your Caddy).

    I don't doubt the stumble/stall problem I had the same problem with my 2008 CTS occasionally when I came to a stop it would feel like it was about to stall and started to tremble.

    On the other hand my 2014 ATS 2.0 has been fantastic since I picked it up the end of June, it hasn't even come close to stalling and no trembling.
