    Steve Hammes tests these cars around my area - it's funny watching a car review and seeing roads that I have traveled on.

    ATS with the V6 is sweet. I'd go with the V6/AWD combo for sure.

    So impressive. Glad he focused on what the ATS is and not what it compares to.
    strange things are afoot at the circle k.

    I'd like to see a setup with an engine with more bite, and an appearance with more attitude. It's a nice car, but it could be really special!

    Yeah, we all want to see the ATS-V. That doesn't detract from the fact that the regular ATS is a great car already.

    I love the ATS with the V6 and six speed Auto...GM did a helluva job with this car.

    Just another example of GM competing when they want to, man is that ever a great car. It's certainly not your Grandfather's Cadillac!
