Review of the 2005 Buick LaCrosse

  • With more refined power under the hood and a contemporary interior, this replacement for the Regal and Century could go a long way toward reestablishing Buick as a premium brand.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Six-passenger seating availability, supremely quiet ride, powerful and refined engine in CXS model, attractive interior.

  • Cons

    Stability control limited to CXS trim, base engine lacks refinement, only comes with a four-speed automatic.

  • What's New for 2005

    The LaCrosse is an all-new premium sedan replacement for both the Century and Regal sedans.

Not good long term

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have driven GM cars for the past 32 years and have obviously been very pleased or I would have changed. I like the size, performance, styling and comfort of my La Crosse. I purchased it in 2005 with less than 15,000 miles on it and have had very few problems UNTIL it reached 90,000 miles. After that everything seemed to go wrong with this car almost at once. It's been properly maintained the same as all previous vehicles which lasted 150,000 + miles without problems. I am very disappointed in this vehicle for that reason alone.

Still love it.

Vehicle: 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car new for my birthday in 2005 and saw it come off the car carrier. It is the best auto I have ever owned. I have just replaced orig. battery as I felt I needed to do so in S. FL and it will be six y.o. in Dec. It rides as tight and quietly as the day I took it and no repairs to date. Only a battery and two tires. If it ever wears out I will be another Buick. I do not understand American love of foreign cars when you can buy this luxury from GM for a lot less.




Good car for the money

Vehicle: 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

The car is roomy and comfortable with great trunk space. Good quality leather - after almost 5 years still looks new. The only three problems are the low oil pressure warning comes on sometimes - taken to two different dealers who could find nothing wrong - hasn't caused any problems, goes off after a few seconds. The other issue is the clunking noise that comes from the steering column when I hit bumps. An the last issue is the A/C which I need to have checked because its unreliable - sometimes cold as the arctic going to warm as the desert back to cold as the arctic within a matter of minutes; however, when it does work, it's very cold :)
