Possible lemon?

Asked by Mar 27, 2016 at 12:23 PM about the 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, purchase a 2013 cadillac ats with 22k miles
last week. Yesterday the car died in me in the
morning. Took it to the dealer and they gave me a
new battery. 2 hours later the car died again and it
sits at the dealer again dead. Also the car fax read
that the shifter cable was replaced along with the
stereo I'm 2015. Should I and can I return the car?

I'm sure they can repair it. A vehicle can only be a lemon if it couldn't be repaired more than 3 times for the same item and the car was new. You possibly can return it, you would need to work it out with the dealership, if they can get you into another car. Of course it will cost you more in the long run.
