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


Review

The rear floor has a very bad curve near the rear door below the rear seat. I had a passenger catch his foot on the lower part of the curved floor as he tried to exit the auto. He triped and fell head first to the ground. He was aware that the floor is a step down, but did not notice the curve near the rear seat. The floor that the seat is resting on should be straight, not curved. This could be very dangereous. Not to mention a law suit if someone is really hurt. I am not sure if GM would fix this problem on MY auto?


Best Features

On Star is a safety reason that I bought a GM auto.


Worst Features

Must have the rear flooring straight to conform with the seats. Not curved near the exit door.

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.

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 driver’s 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.
