Cadillac to update CUE infotainment system for improved responsiveness
2/6/2013 4:48AM by Alexis Santos
(Click for Image)
If unresponsiveness in Cadillac's CUE infotainment system has been a personal point of frustration, relief is on the way: an update to smooth things over is being worked on. CUE Design Manager Jeff Massimilla told Wired Magazine that the firm's received feedback regarding responsiveness, and they're working on "a modification that will be released sometime later this year." DONT BUY OR LEASE TILL ITS FIXED !
With the upgrade, the infotainment system will be more responsive and the touchscreen and capacitive buttons will provide haptic feedback more quickly. The Cadillac XTS and ATS are set to score the update, but there's still no exact date penciled in for the patch's arrival.
DONT BUY OR LEASE TILL ITS FIXED !
Though vehicles could suck down the update with a built-in data connection, the software will need to be installed by a Cadillac dealership instead. Not a fan of having lost knobs and dials to a touchscreen in the first place?
According to Cadillac VP of Marketing Don Butler, we'll see the likes of such analog controls complement the screen interface in the future. WHICH MEANS SOOOO MANY CUSTOMERS ARE COMPLAINING THEY ARE GOING TO PUT KNOBS FOR HEATING/AC AND RADIO BACK IN THE CAR IF THEY DONT NO BUYERS AND LOTS OF UNHAPPY NEW CUSTOMERS LIKE ME
CANT WAIT FOR THEM TO FIX POOR RADIO RECEPTION BAD ANTENNA SYSTEM
AND COME CLEAN ON THE TERRIBLE MPG PROBLEM ON TURBO ATS

Right now I have a dealer offering me the following:
2.0T Performance RWD Manual
Cold Weather Package
First payment and DMV fee due at signing - 537 a month. The MSRP on the car is 44,185. Tax here in NY is 8%. Does this seem like a good deal? I am trying to get him to provide the residual and money factor, but he appears rather reluctant, which makes me think something odd is going on. Thanks for any advice in advance.

It is important to know the MF and residual to determine how good of a deal it is. What is the actual selling price and the net cap cost with the fees added in?

Sorry bout that, 39 months, 15k miles a year. I can't do 10k miles. I'm waiting to hear back about additional details. This is all being done through e-mail.

Is it true the 2.0T is currently leasing better than the 2.5L? How?
I wasn't considering the 2.0T but if the numbers are that close I will go with the turbo.

Seems like a good deal. You are getting the car for $114 under invoice and the money factor is really low. My lease calculator shows approx $585/month with those numbers, so $537/month is good.
I'm assuming you have driven the car? All the reviews I have read were very negative towards the manual transmission in this car.

Thanks for the reply. I have not driven the manual yet, but I'm hoping when I go check it out, that the revisions made at the factory negate any bad press it had received in the test cars. Many people on the cadillac forums seem happy with the manual.
