I have had a string of ATS leases, currently on our 3rd.

I love the dynamics of the chassis, the size is on the small side for my needs (toddler, German Shepherd), but the wife has a crossover for family outings.

Used ATS-V prices are dropping into the fantastic bang for the buck range, and into or below the price of a new less equipped ATS (well, until production ends anyway). I crave a manual again. And a performance vehicle.

How well are these holding up? What’s the likelihood of finding a good example next year for purchase and longer term ownership? I think if I can find a manual 4 door in blue I’ll be all over it like a fat kid on cake...
