    At this point, I have 1290 miles on the replacement engine in my 2016 Coupe. So far, there have been no problems with the installation. In addition to the new engine, at about the same time, my...

    The cars you list are a pretty wide range, however, if you are really focused on the compact sedan segment, of the cars you list, the ATS-V and Guilia are characteristic of cars that size. If you are...

    So far, I've been unable to ascertain what the problem is with LF4 engines built in 2016 which causes only the front two cylinders to have a loss of proper ring seal which causes the oil smoke on...

    I'm too cheap to subscribe to Consumer Reports but I do read CD.



    I stay off forums when I'm drinking.

    I finally have the imagery from the diagnostic session on the engine in my '16 Coupe which was done three weeks ago at Bunning Cadillac. Keep in mind that HFV6es uses a cylinder numbering system...
  6. Sticky: How did you get reliability data for those cars?...

    How did you get reliability data for those cars? I find it hard to get that kind of info, other than the JD Power studies which do not break down the data by model.



    I'm not gown up yet.

    I with you on that...what is it with the natural gas thing. I can only guess that Royal Dutch Shell, which owns the Penzoil brand, is using natural gas as the start of that product. As whether it's a...

    I think GM was stumped back when the first engine had to be replaced, but I think they knew there was a problem by the time I began complaining about the second cold-start-smoke problem. Because of...

    Well...I guess maybe I'm just not as pissed off as you are about GM. Yes, it's been frustrating to deal with and, yes, Cadillac ATS-Vs lack quality, but there is nothing else on the market that...

    I'm still trying to get GM to fix the Blue BMW Buster's problem with oil smoke on cold starts. This morning I reorganized all the video footage I have of the problem and that got me thinking I need...

    ATS-Vs have great brakes. They stop the car in short distances. They have great pedal feel and the OE pads do not exhibit significant fade when driven properly in a performance street duty cycle.

    Actually, when I spent some time in Atascadero for a while, they told me that they'd let me out if I'd stop beating myself up.:chuckle:
    If that were true...GM "keeping up with the competition"...the...

    Atascadero, eh. I get though there once in a while. That State Route 41 going over to SR46 is a favorite twisty road of mine.

    So you understood the need to run the drive cycle prior to a smog...

    Wow. Just looked at the date of your post. Guess I haven't been on my Blog for a while. Sorry bout that.

    As for the XT4, well...since I'm really not a CUV kinda guy I have no strong opinion one...

    Didn't realize you leased it. We don't lease vehicles because, I feel it doesn't make sense economically unless it's a business which is doing the leasing because of the write-off or I just have to...

    It's freakin' unbelievable how much GM has spent on warranty work on our two cars. I'll betcha, parts, labor and travel, it's -large. I know the cost on just the new motor in Sandy's car was 15...

    I tell ya, this blog has turned into a place for me to bitch-out Cadillac and these ATS-Vs...certainly not an outcome I expected when I began it...

    As the SS was based closely on the VF Commodore SS, it makes perfect sense to swap the Chevy badging for Holden. It's even more appropriate as the SS was one of the last platforms made locally in...

    Trans Oil Change

    The latest on our ATS-V Coupe, the "Blue BMW Buster"? While every once in a while it will smoke a bit after a cold start, I'm living with that until GM gets around to testing the...
