    First ATS problem......Help

    Went to start my car the other day and it seemed to be running on 2 cylinders, violently shaking and strong smell of gas and also when i went into reverse it would just die........I bought this car used knowing it had prior issues like this and the dealer said it was fixed for sure...They replaced all the injectors and dove it for 1kmiles and they said it was fine. So now lets see what they do any ideas on what it might be or have any other owners experienced what I have? Its a 2.0T RWD 2013

    I'd take it to a Cadillac dealer as it should still be under the MFG warranty.

    Best thing to do would be to have someone meet you at the dealer, drop the loaner off, and tell them you don't want that car back, sounds like they screwed you.

If you would like to further discuss your situation and have my involvement while working with your dealership, please let me know.

    yikes, sounds like one big 'ol bowl of fun... best leg to stand on would be to grab the VIN and run a history to see if they recorded the service to the car BEFORE you bought it, then at least you have written proof it was f$%$#ed before you bought it, if theirs no proof you could be legally s.o.l

    ...why did you buy a car that had a prior issue like that anyways? I hope you got it for a song..

    Re: First ATS problem......Help

    UPdate! Dealer called today and says we found a hole in the engine and there was antifreeze leaking into the engine, The hole is repairable he said but he ordered a new engine for me and ecu....and he says you can see what you want to do after we put the engine in...So maybe I can trade up to a better model and tell them im not happy about this new engine situation. Thoughts on what I should do?


    The dealer is doing a great job and they are very helpful.

    I think you should be happy with a new engine.

    Can you give any more details on where the antifreeze was leaking to and from?
    Antifreeze in either the combustion chamber or crankcase is detrimental to the engine, and there is no way you would want to have it "repaired".

    If new engine solves the problem be appreciative, leveraging this issue to trade up to another model under those circumstances would not be ethical IMO. That said if you honestly still have issues after the new engine you should peruse to a reasonable conclusion.
