    Rumorpile: Has Cadillac Stopped Production Of ATS Manual?

    If you have been reading any of the comparison tests of the new Cadillac ATS and the competition, you would have notice a reoccurring complaint; the six-speed manual transmission stinks. Apparently Cadillac is taking those criticisms to heart.

    A source tells Motor Trend that Cadillac has stopped production of ATSs equipped with the six-speed manual to fix complaints of the six-speed being awful. The fix involves moving to a softer bushing setup in the transmission.

    The fix will will be made before any cars equipped with the manual make it into the hands of consumers, meaning no recall.

    While I know not everyone is good at a manual tranny, I am surprised that I did not see this more with all the reviews I read, only a couple complained, but guess more than a couple if GM is truly doing this.

    Just glad GM is listening to feedback and truly responding to make things better.

    GM has been getting better and faster at addressing isuses.

    My 04 GTP took nearly a year to fix the bouncing headlamps with a simple metal bracket.

    I like the fix it and fix it now kind of action.
