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


Review

I was shopping for a midsize that gave a lot for your money. The Lacrosse is that. With the gold convenience package, it came with a whole group of luxury features. With the GM employee pricing this car couldn't compete with others including the imports for bang for the buck!


Best Features

Fit and finish, leather heated seats, dual zone auto climate controls, interior and cargo room, remote starting,smoothness, good acceleration, and quietness out on the road.

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


Review

I have bucket seats and the plastic that wraps around the seat at the bottom is in the wrong place for a short person. Actually it is too thick. If you put your leg next to it, it hurts. So I have to remember to keep my leg stretched out. I am talking on the driverís side, on the left. It is a great car for a young person.


Best Features

I do like OnStar, wifi, and all the bells and whistles.


Worst Features

More inside room. Keep out more outside noise. Smoother ride. I sure hope it is as reliable as my LeSabre's were.

2005 Buick LaCrosse CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall ride and comfort has been very good. Whisper quiet, comfortable on long trips, firm suportive seats. I purchased the bucket seats as the bench seat has a dumb looking fold out center console. Controls well placed. Car had a brake pulsation caused from warped brake rotors. Car was fixed but when I picked the car up in a rainstorm found passenger side flooded with water. Had to bring car back twice to have leak fixed. Was not a happy person! That was unacceptable to me as build quality should have been better. Overall since that time all has been good with no other issues. Hope it stays that way. The interior (Tan) is what I bought needs to be darker to show less dirt. Good value overall.


Best Features

Quite ride. Comfortable seats. Plenty of front driverside leg room. Good overall power and fuel mileage. Solid feel. 3.8 liter motor has proven inself to be a very reliable engine.


Worst Features

A/C recirculation button needs to stay on after car is turned off. darker color tan interior as the light color shows the dirt much quicker. A area to place you hand on when closing the truck so you do not have to touch the paint. Also the option of turning off the daytime running light permanently.

Review

There were several models of Buick that I had been interested in, the LaCrosse caught my eye. The car was not too big, nor too small, the fact that the rear seats fold down for more room was impressive. I am a gadget person, this car has just about everthing, yet it is safe and secure, there is less road noise due to the insulation and efforts by GM to keep the noise level down. Of course one of the pleasing items is the gas mileage, it is good! All in all, I enjoy the vehicle and its workmanship.

Review

I am past my "beat the other guy off the line" days but I wanted a car that had decent acceleration and one that did not ride like the old Buick floating ride, but rather one that had a smooth quiet ride, and one that you could also feel the road under you and was firm in the corners. My Lacrosse after 3,500 is all that I wanted and more. No, the accereration does not snap your neck back but is more than adequate. The cabin is incredibly quiet and the power seats are very comfortable. There is enough room in the trunk for four sets of golf clubs and there is room in the cabin for four adults although the back seat could use a little more room. This is a great car for this old baby boomer!


Best Features

Remote starter, driver information center, upgraded stereo is worth the money, incredibly quiet and smooth ride and I can't wait for winter to use the heated seats.


Worst Features

Cabin could be a little larger. A hook to hang my clothes on the assist handle above the window doesn't work. Memory on the drivers side power seat. Gas mileage could be a little better but I get 17-20mpg in town depending on how fast I leave the stop lights and 28mpg @ 75mph on the freeway
