Since the idle issue is intermittent for myself, I’m sure I won’t notice anything right away. But, for those of you who frequently come across this issue, you may want to contact your local GM/Caddy dealer to see if the update is available!! I'll be sure to update later if the problem persists or is corrected!!
    Thanks for keeping us posted, Rozay! I'm looking forward to your updates, and please let me know if you would ever like assistance working with your dealer. I'm reachable via email at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com or via private message.

    Best,

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Hey guys.. My 2.0 turbo has been in the shop 28 days out of the. 70 days I have owned it.
    It has actually stalled out twice while at a stop light! It really rocks back and forth hard.. My dealership had said they fixed it. Then said that can not duplicate it. 4 times I have been in. Today I asked to be traded
    Out of my lease, they said sure, with 5 grand down and a payment of 700, I can upgrade to a 3.6!
    I drove my car home.. On my way home it shook 3 times while in traffic.. To the point to where
    People would stare!
    Also while adjusting my side mirrors going down the highway.. My back windows went down and my trunk popped open! I keep looking for a hidden camera thinking I'm being punked!!

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Hair Slinger I feel your pain. My ATS 2.0T has spent more time in the dealer than in my driveway. The first time they performed an update and the issue persisted. The second time they said "could not duplicate the issue " but did some torque bolt tightening/adjustments. The third time they kept it for about 4 days and said GM put a bulletin out on the issue and that did some more torque bolt tightening/adjustments. Well the issue continues and while mine has not stalled it has come incredibly close. As I have said before, other than that the car is a really nice vehicle but I am at my limit with the idle problem to the point that I have no confidence to take it on a long road trip as I fear it will stall. My dealer said they would try to put me in another vehicle but alas I have yet to hear from them. I am taking it back for the 4th time next week which at this point activates my state's lemon law. If they can't put me in something similar with no out of pocket expense I am not sure if I want to continue to have to pay for a vehicle that is has a known issue but cannot seem to be resolved. It just boggles my mind that Cadillac is not doing more to fix this issue considering how important this car is to them and GM.

    I agree! Visit number 5 for my car!! I took my car back yesterday morning. Because, while I was sitting at the bank in the drive through, my car shook like crazy, then died. I restarted it, grabbed my phone and shot video of the next few seconds after I started it..and it shook again, not as hard, but the lights on the dash flickered and the rmps went up and down a little.
    My dealership is not being helpful. Some times they don't even make a ticket, and leave out most things I tell them. I am leasing, I'm so very upset. Tomorrow I am contacting an attorney that handles Lemon Laws... such a shame.

    My dealership is not being helpful. Now when I bring my car in, they dont even make a ticket, and leave out most things I tell them. I am leasing, and they sold my 2010 SRX right after I traded it... I'm so very upset. Tomorrow I am contacting an attorney that handles Lemon Laws... such a shame.
    They all scatter when I come in, and now they treat me as if I am lying.
    Contact Louis or Katie. They can help with the dealership issues. Also, do you have any other dealers near by?

    Re: Trembling at idle

    I managed to get a pretty good sized quake out of my 2.0 this morning. Here is the scenario. The engine had only been on for about 6 min in the cold. I drove down a street at about 30 mph for less than a minute and came to a stop sign. I thought she was going to stall for sure but managed to stick it out. It was the biggest quake yet and if I had a passenger my face would have red for sure.

    Looking back at when it happens its seems to be when its cold out and the motor has only been on a short time and occurs after coming to a stop.

    I guess the easy fix is to warm up the car but it appears GM made a software fix per the above posts so Ill add that to the list for when I take it in for the CUE update.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    My sales associate received a 2.0T AWD Performance last week. I went to view the vehicle and used the remote start. Once I got in and placed the vehicle in gear I noticed the trembling. I assumed it was due to the cold weather. This particular vehicle had 70 miles on the odometer. The vehicle did not have the driver assist pkg so i passed. My salesman claimed it was ok to use regular unleaded. I explained to him that performance would be reduced. I wonder how many dealers are delivering 2.0T's with regular unleaded. Is this a factor for the trembling?

    The 1st car(2.0T) I drove was started cold and we experienced no trembling.

    I've been having the same issue with my 2.0T, its not as bad as some of the other people on here but its noticeable. Will contact my dealership and try and get this update, maybe get the CUE update at the same time.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    My thought is that this car in a 2.0 turbo was just a bad idea. When driving down the interstate, I adjusted my side mirror and my back windows went down and my trunk popped open, I was baffled. My trunk had popped open by it's self several times. I feel this car is dangerous. I hate to even say what's next.
    Today the "loaner" car i have been driving since the morning of the 9th.. that is a 3.6... after being parked in my driveway after work for about 10 mins, the trunk popped open by its self also.
    I am way over the whole ATS thing.. any of them. I am so disappointed in Cadillac/GM over this. I could have any car I want, and I picked Cadillac!! My last vehicle was a 2010 SRX Premium, and I loved it!!! I have had my ATS in the service 5 times, and now over 30 days. I am making payments on a Lemon!! Today I contacted an attorney. I have been avoided long enough. Again, I am so sad.

    Here's hoping your troubles go away and you get to go back to the things you liked about the car.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Perhaps the trembling/stalling may be due to regular gas after all. My car was delivered with a full tank of regular. It did not like low revs at all, and nearly staple a couple of times pulling into my garage. After running the tank down as far as I dared, I fill it with premium. The car really likes this better. It runs much better at low revs and pulls better, too. Didn't run it at full revs during the first tank, so I can't comment on ultimate power with regular, but I was surprised how much better it ran with premium. If those with the problems have only used regular, please try a tankful of premium before condemning the car.

    As far as the trunk opening, it's usually due to something in the pocket pressing the trunk button. Happened with my CTS, too. Isolating the key fob helps; some of my pants have a fob pocket, and I never have an issue in those pants.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    I always use premium gas. I've tried to be patient but now I am into my 3rd payment and still no car. I have lost my faith in Cadillac. I am being ignored, but I have been calm. Also my remote on my 2010 SRX never had an issue. In fact my SRX was a perfect vehicle. The loaner car I have is a 3.6, and the trunk has opened 2 times. ATS needs to be re evaluated!

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Thank you Dave3283, it is a beautiful car, I picked it because it was loaded and beautiful, not ever once thinking I would be taking it in for so many things going wrong. I truly am heart broken over this whole thing. Today GM Cadillac division told me that no one else had any issues with the ATS. She said I was the only one she knew of. I found that odd. She told me that anyone could post anything on line. Very Very rude. I'm picking up my stalling vehicle in the morning. Again, it's very pretty, but I feel it's dangerous.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Just now found out from my insurance company that the reason my insurance has gone up is because the insurance commission has found the cadillac ats to not be as safe of a vehicle as they
    thought. Therefore my thoughts confirmed that I am in an unsafe vehicle!!!!!!! Please check with your insurance companies!
