During a recent service my Cadillac dealer's service dept checked 2 open recalls - found nothing needing repair - as I expected. I knew nothing needed repair - I was aware of the 2 very minor issues for the recall. This type service makes me even more confident in GM's commentment to safety and quality. Love my ATS even more than my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP - which is an exceptional vehcile. A good friend bought the GXP and just absolutely loves it.
Bulk of the recalled vehicles consist of models no longer manufactured and many nearly 10 years old. GM's taken the problem to heart and increased their review of possible issues and notifying vehicle owners of the need for inspection. I consider this a positive program and support CEO Barra and GM in this matter. Important to consider other companies increased their issue review of possible problems and grew their recall numbers also. Overall a positive move within the ENTIRE industry.
I would not watch him even if he was the last man standing on national tv. Just like I avoid FoxNews.
And a new Bugatti Veryon in mat black. The coming senior Cadillac sedan'll sell out before it even hits the ground out here. Escalade's and GMC Denali's are the HOT ticket. Local chevrolet dealers get special GM allocations of Corvettes. Jeez they're literally all over the place out here. Love my ATS - just had a new pair of Magnaflow's installed - sounds so much better.
You speak the truth. Between he and Cruz - it's a toss up over who's the most ridiculus. I wish Wendy Davis luck winning over Greg Abott for Texas Governor. Greg Abbott turns my stomach.
I haven't decided - who's the bigger fool. Rush or those who listen to his line of #$%$.
Had an issue with the Driver Assist program. Dealer involved Cadillac and was told to replace the motors in the drivers seat. They did, solved the issue AND cleared 2 recalls at the same time. They hadda keep my ATS overnight (no big deal). I was driven home by dealer staff in a new XTS Platinum Edition V sport (oh my god it was wonderful). Called the next morning as promised and BROUGHT my ATS to me. Dude, thats what great service is all about.
Nothing beats being made to feel "special" and appreciated.
You must be off your meds. Take your meds and go to bed. Perhaps you'll be lucid in the AM.
Wrong. TeaParty is the mental disorder with brain death the end result.
I agree. Sadly, for our 2 Party system the current Republican Party cannot field an electable candidate for President and Vice-President - there simply is no one. Say what you please, a ticket with Hillary Rodham Clinton and Julian Castro cannot be overcome by ANY Republican titleholders.
Republicans in Texas simply do not understand that their control of Texas politics has the lifespan now of less than 10 years. Senator Ted Cruz is a "flash in the pan" at best and a real troublemaker at worst. Hispanics are simply increasing their population faster than whites or blacks, for that matter. Approximately 50,000 Hispanic's become 18 years of age EVERY month. Do you realize this is approximately 600,000 possible new registered voters EVERY year?
It distresses me that so many white Republicans of my age group (70+) cannot deal with the growing importance of Hispanic and Black voters. Its' most definitely a racial hatred issue that's been out there all along. Makes me wonder how long we'll continue to fight the "Civil War" in the South.
I own an ATS Performance Edition 3.6 RWD and love it. Dealer service is excellent considering all the recalls and attendant issues created by the massive number of recalls.
I fully understand the need for recalls and consider them a positive NOT a negative. It isn't as though GM is alone with this issue. Look at Toyota, for example.
As Cadillac fills in it's model line, that sales situation will fix itself. Anyone not taking a look at the new Escalade misses a true experience with luxury. Ford and Chrysler simply are not in the same league. Mercedes S class is my benchmark and Cadillac's nearing that level.
By the way, I reported specific abuse to Yahoo - impersonation.
The problem I see within Ford? Lots of money going into the F series trucks. Without a full size sedan platform for any senior models. Lincoln MKS and Taurus being moved onto a modified FWD Fusion based platform soon - that's about it. Nothing mentioned from the new Mustang platform - like a Lincoln focused model. Cadillac prefers to introduce a high end sedan RWD in about 12 months. The ATS/CTS platform based 2016 Camaro comes sooner rather than later. And Chrysler's working hell outta that old Mercedes platform with the 300/Challenger/Charger. Ford's calling card centers upon an aluminum F series with a 2.7 twin turbo V6. Slim pickin's there.
GM's "so called" problem with recalls doesn't bother me. In fact, as they handle the overall situation I firmly believe it will become a positive program for GM. "Drop by your GM dealer, we need to take a look at something". Handled correctly that can only become a very positive program with customers. Time will tell.
We shall see, won't we.
