2013 ATS 2.0T Lux, 2017 MB C300 Coupe
I very much do like my 2013 Lux, but I'm not sure that I'll be keeping it beyond its 4/50K warranty. Although I bought new cars when I retired (2002 BMW 325, 2005 BMW Z4), I'm not a "deep-pockets" guy. Always had a 2nd hand car for the wife and a company leased car (mid-level GM/Ford/Chrysler) for me. I got the ATS because I wanted a drive like the BMW's, but didn't want a BMW. The ATS fit the bill perfectly, drove as good as or better than my BMWs, was more of a luxury car than the BMW and cost less. However, I believe that I have been to the dealership (repairs/recalls) more times within the last two year of ATS ownership than I had been with ALL my other cars (at least 10-12 cars). So, thinking ahead, knowing my next car will not be a Cadillac ATS, which 4-door car can take it's place? Trying to keep costs at the same level and having a car with the ATS' driving characteristics, I can only come up with the BMW 228. Any other cars to consider? BTW, this is not a troll, just a very fearful new Cadillac owner who's not feeling too secure in getting another Cadillac.
