I purchased a 2013 Premium 2.0T awd, white with red interior yesterday cpo from a nearby Cadillac dealer in PA. I am a bit confused since the dealer sent the build sheet and it has magnetic ride control listed, yet everywhere I read magnetic ride is not available with awd. I would assume the dealer is not confused about awd as the car has the ATS4 badge on the trunk. is there a way to physically tell if the magnetic ride control is there?

The MRC is only available on 3.6 RWD models. The dealer is mistaken.

Tats what I figured as well, but they sent the build sheet and it is listed on it. I found that odd.

I stand corrected. It still can't be on the car in question, though, since it's AWD.

I don't own it yet. Put a deposit down yesterday, pick it up after a new recall is completed in a couple days. I have the vin from the website but it is not on the build sheet the dealer sent. Everything else on the build sheet is in the car. Just don't get what's going on here.

Does the build sheet say that it has AWD? And yes, I know your first post does say the badge is there, but does the sheet say it?

I suppose it lists the MRC as part of the premium package because in RWD cases, it's included. Rather than have 2 codes for the Premium package (one for AWD and one for RWD), they just have the one.

The fact that you have code rb7 (all season run flats) also ponts to AWD - RWD premiums get summer tires. Also no mechanical limited slip diff noted - though that may just be lumped into fe3 on the build sheet...

OK so after looking at this, the F46 means the awd and no magnetic ride control. Under YE43 they have a "standard" list of options, of which magnetic ride control is omitted due to awd. If the car was rwd F46 would have been replaced by F55. That makes sense, the salesman just didn't read the build sheet properly. Either way I'm still excited to pick it up. Does anyone know about a recall issued Feb 13th for a sunroof switch?

Just searched GM messages and don't see anything listed, too bad you don't have a VIN yet or I would check as I am curious myself.

----------

Nevermind, found it:

To: Dealer, Service Manager, Fleet Manager. Sales Manager, and Parts Manager



Subject: Stop Delivery Order for Upcoming Noncompliance Recall - 15119

Canadian Total VIN population = 6,444 (Stock = 1,128)



Models: 2013-2015 Cadillac ATS Equipped with (RPO CF5) Sunroof)





STOP DELIVERY ORDER



Effective immediately, stop the delivery of certain 2013-2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles in new or used vehicle inventory. General Motors has notified Transport Canada and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about an upcoming noncompliance recall that involves these vehicles. The GM recall number is 15119.



Until further instructions are received, all 2013-2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles that are in dealer new or used vehicle inventory and equipped with (RPO CF5) sunroof must be held and not delivered to customers, dealer-traded, released to auction, or used for demonstration purposes. It is a violation of federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the noncompliance is remedied.



General Motors has decided that 2013 – 2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles equipped with power-operated roof panel systems fail to conform to Canada/Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (C/FMVSS) No.118, “Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems”. The roof panels in these vehicles will auto-close when the non-recessed portion of the “Slide” or “Tilt” switches are pressed and the roof panel is open. Because these switches are not fully recessed, they can be actuated when performing the test procedure set forth in S6(a) of C/FMVSS No. 118, which results in the roof panel auto-closing when open.



To correct this condition, a revised roof console accessory switch trim plate will be available that recesses the sunroof control switches deeper into the panel.



We are working with the supplier to obtain the required parts as quickly as possible. When a sufficient quantity is available, the recall bulletin will be released and dealers can begin repairing vehicles.



The Investigate Vehicle History screen in the Global Warranty Management system will be updated the week of February 16, 2015 for this upcoming noncompliance recall. This action has been taken to assist dealers with determining which vehicles are involved so they can properly respond to customer inquiries. Please note the "N/A" under Release Date and the "Incomplete – Remedy Not Yet Available" message under Status. This means release of the recall bulletin is still pending and dealers should not attempt to perform any repairs at this time.



The attached file provides the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the involved vehicles that have been identified as currently being in dealer new vehicle inventory. It is sorted by dealer Business Associate Code (BAC) for easy reference. Your dealership's BAC will not be listed if none of the involved vehicles are currently in your new vehicle inventory. A file identifying involved vehicles in dealer used inventory is not available.



Additional information will be provided in the near future.

Currently no open recalls on this vehicle, as the letter states recall will be released once they get all their parts and what not figured out. I only have access to Canadian Vin's affected by this so I can't see if your's is listed, however it does say all 2013-2015 ATS's with sunroof so I am sure it will be affected by the recall. Dealer is legally not allowed to release the vehicle to you until recall is done. With them not having released it yet that could still be weeks IMO. But your selling dealer may know more than I on time frame since they prolly called GM about it and I haven't done any digging.

Yeah, I am hoping it doesn't take too long. I'm not one for patience once I've decided to make a purchase :). I do appreciate you taking a look, and hopefully this does not take too long. I talked to the salesman earlier today and he said he would have an answer tomorrow. I guess the offices are closed for president's day.
