Editor's Overview

The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is the most powerful version of the ATS compact-luxury sports car, and the latest addition to Cadillac's V-Series performance line. Available as a 5-passenger sedan or 4-passenger coupe, the new ATS-V is meant to woo younger, affluent buyers who might otherwise consider more recognized rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Safety Recalls (2)

Visibility Jul 24, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 24, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V463000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to June 25, 2015. The affected vehicles may experience the roof panel closing automatically when the non-recessed switches are pressed and the roof panel is open. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."
Consequence:
Because the switch is not recessed, the roof panel switch may inadvertently be pressed resulting in unintended auto-closure of the roof panel, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate, free of charge. The recall began on August 19, 2015. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 15568. Note this recall supersedes 15V-106.
Visibility Sep 3, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 3, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V558000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Cadillac ATS sedan vehicles manufactured April 23, 2012, to September 2, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the coil antenna module that powers the rear defogger system may generate excessive heat due to excessive cycling or continuous operation.
Consequence:
If the coil antenna generates excessive heat, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the Electronic Climate Control module to remove the automatic rear defogger "on" function, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 15299.
