  1. Some one should remind these fellows GM dominated the world for literally 75 years, n Cadillac was the first car company in America. We might get our ass kicked for couple of rounds but won’t let you win

  2. all the doubters need to be reasonable, this is Gm’s FIRST attempt at this kind of car to compete with the europeans. It was a good attempt and it will only be better in the future…

  3. Same engine as is in my 2007 Saturn Sky. Just think what it’d feel like having 1000 lbs less weight? Yep, that’s what my car feels like 😀

  4. We have to agree to disagree then because so many people think Euro cars are more reliable and durable than American cars and it’s simply not true.

  5. There are plenty of 20+ year old BMW’s in the States with lots of miles on them, I own 2 myself. Very reliable and solid cars

  6. first it has quattro, which will make it handle in any condition and will keep you safe.
    Second, i dont know about reliability, my parents had 3 A8 and non of then has never gone wrong
    Third, cabine quality. the ATS still doesnt haven a european quality materials and it shows right when you jump in the car

  7. To be fair, I know someone with a 10-15 year old BMW 3 Series with over 300,000 miles. But you’re right, most of the time, German cars are very unreliable and when they break, it’s a fortune.

  8. That has never been the case here in the States. It is very difficult to find a 20 year old BMW still on the road compared to 20, 30, 40, and even 50 year old Cadillacs still going strong! Cadillac now has a higher resale value than Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Audi, Volkswagon, Acura, Lexus, and is equal to BMW. That was accomplished in just 4 short years.

    Cadillac is world class now.

    Get used to it.

  9. Being a long term BMW owner I must say your both right and wrong .Yes the Bimmer is more money to repair as I have found out especially if you do not shop around on the internet for parts and go to a good shop or do it yourself .but there are plenty of very old BMW around even some old 850 and tons of 5 series .But I must say my next car might very well be the ATS Caddy I was very impressed by the car as a package and better priced easier to service and parts will be local and cheaper .

  10. Cadillac is in the top 5 when it comes to reliability. Here in the U.S.A., we see 20, 30, 40, 50, and even 60 year old Cadillacs on the road all the time. NEVER do we see even 20 year old BMWs.

    BMWs don’t last that long and they cost too much to repair!

  11. Discover an vehicle insurance company which may offer a much better quote. Perform a cost check at this website and discover how much money you can save.

  12. 335i> ATS you know why? 10 years from now the BMW will be the in business parking lots while the the caddilac is rotting is a junkyard

  13. When you pay over $36 a month for car insurance, youre spending a lot. Look into our website to have a look at just how you can reduce nearly 60% on car insurance!

  14. I want to live like never before! I… bury my face deep inside your butt hole. Now get that gay dick away from me before I suck it DUDE. <3

  15. ..and you might want to use a little common sense. The reason why we call ourselves American, is because we are the only country in North America to have America in our country’s name (United States Of AMERICA). You Canadians get offended by the silliest things. 

  16. So when you say Chevy is American you are referring to the continent?
    Btw, refer to your geography knowledge and learn the difference between a continent and country. Terrorist American.

  17. The ignorant one is he who can’t be bothered to look at the information before commenting.
    Tell me what is wrong with the information provided?

  19. I think the cadillac has a nicer exterior than the 3 series, however; I’m not sure if it beats the benchmark

  21. Specially when your normal travel time is less than 35 miles, you may save quite a lot of cash on insurance! Find out about the insurance companies dirty little strategy, and begin keeping BIG BUCKS every month by visiting this web page!

  22. This should be a wake up call for BMW. when car critics are all over the place, and judge vehicles inside and out, it doesn’t make sense for BMW to call themselves the “ultimate driving machine”. Hence I think BMW is taking a wrong path. BMW brand was not meant to be mainstream. It meant to be set apart. If BMW does not take care of this crap, in long term there will be mixed feelings about their company and the fans will not remain happy.

  23. GM is not a pure brand. E.g. does Sunfire/Cavalier ring any bells? It almost reminds me of how Hyundai that is pursuing Lexus, Merc, Infinity with its Genesis sedan all at the same time and it fails in each attempt. At the same time, I am aware (based on MT) that BMW has been going “softer” and more mainstream lately. p.s. I hate the ugly front end of the 3 series.

  24. I am very conservative when it comes to cars, and I give credits to cars with a long history in a market segment. BMW is the bench mark for sport luxury brand. BMW has become the standard, a statement, and a tradition in the sport luxury brand. How easy is it for GM to convince people to their products? I can’t talk for other people and upcoming generations, but at least not me for life (and I’m 24 yrz old). I have a problem with car brands who have had crappy history in the past.
