Anticipating an ATS in Colorado

1100 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  TurboAWD
Yesterday I ordered a Premium 2.0L ATS AWD. It's in red with a caramel interior with cold weather package. Was unable to find the car I wanted at any of the dealers around Denver, so I'll wait the 6 to 10 weeks for delivery. I'm excited contemplating this new car as I've been hoping for a long time to someday own a GM car but wanted a turbo all wheel drive car that weighed around 3,400 lbs. The ATS fits the bill perfectly and I love the styling. I have been driving turbo AWD cars since 1992 when I bought an Eclipse GSX. I owned several turbo eclipses over the years until 2005. Mitsubishi got out of that business because of the low take rate and so I bought a 2006 Subaru Legacy GT. I later added a Cobb stage 1 tune and the car is quite nice to drive (~285hp). However, ever since I bought that car I have been looking for something like the ATS. I'm hoping this will the awesome ride I've been looking for.

You're going to love it. I also got the Premium 2.0T AWD, but mine is Black Diamond/Morello Red.
I've had mine up in the mountains a few times and it's been a blast carving around the turns.
But I got stuck once behind an old Ford Pinto, so I backed way off... didn't want that thing to explode in flames. hahaha...

It's also great fun to drive down in the city. It's an awesome car and I love it.
I've had mine for almost 3 months, and I've only seen one other ATS on the road here in the DTC area.
