    The two things I'm not sold on is CUE and those gauges. But hot damn it's a nice car.

    He's ok as a presenter, but I prefer Harry Metcalfe of EVO magazine. Thanks for the video.

    Nice review, doesn't break any new ground, but good nonetheless.

    Is he the first to gripe about the automatic 6 speed?

    I think he implied the 2.5 also offers the manual, which ain't right.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Didn't like the negative comments about the Cadillac emblem in the steering wheel nor did I like the silly comment about the CTS coupe. I like Roadfly's Jessie Lang's reviews better. Watch her review the CTS-V. Wonder when she will do the ATS?

    That was enjoyable in many ways. The fact she's bright -- pursuing a PhD -- to go with the looks and the love of cars must result in a line out the door of guys wanting to go out with her. Maybe that's why she loves fast cars, better to get away from that crowd .

    And if this is how she's funding her PhD I could think of a lot less fun ways. Good on her, I say. I wonder if she gets to have the cars for extended periods thereby parking them on campus? That'd leave a lot of guys scratching their heads wondering why she can't seem to decide which car she wants to drive or own .

    Me too. She's really smart and hot at the same time. Everyone else seems like they needed a job, and that was their last resort.

    She is definitely a true car enthusiast.

    Technically she's still using her looks to fund her PhD, just saying

    But I'm talking personality, and Cooley's got it:

    There is nothing about the ATS ride--particularly an ATS Premium with MRC--that is stereotypical "Cadillac."

    I'm not a big fan of changing the brand emblems needlessly, but I do think the Cadillac wreath and crest is a little fuddy duddy looking....

    NO! I have seen several car reviews on the net that made mention of the 6 speed tranny and the turbo engine that they did not like.
