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


Review

This car rides and drives like a Lexus. Buick has outdone itself with the development. Cab comfort is well recieved. I commute a good distance every day and driving this car makes it much easier.


Best Features

Remote starter, Interior design, acceleration, handling


Worst Features

Larger gas tank, better mileage, Better foot pedal design for those of us with a shoe size bigger than mens's 9.

Review

I really like the interior and exterior styling and the fit and finish are very good. The ride is smooth and quiet. However, I drive for work and find the seat very uncomfortable after long rides day after day. It seems that along the sides of the seats there is not enough cushion to shield the driver from the metal structure beneath. It has made me think of trading in an otherwise great car earlier than planned.


Best Features

Interior design of the dash and instrumentation. Storage areas on the console and placement of "plug-ins".


Worst Features

My last car was a 2000 Regal (165K miles) the seat was very comfortable. Do the same with this car. City MPG is not good (18-22). Improve acceleration.

Review

Lags when accelerating from one lane to another on the highway. Jars the teeth when riding over light road irregularities. Creeps when waiting for traffic lights to change. Mpg is poor. On the road without city driving may be 21 mpg. City driving gives me 15-16 mpg. My 93 Buick Park Ave gave me better mileage on the road. The thermometer inside reads wrong all the time. I would guess that there is some sort of electronic problem.


Best Features

The exterior and interior are classy looking


Worst Features

Not being a mechanic the improvements I'm looking for entail the use of diagnostic equipment and personnel who know how to use the equipment

Review

I bought my LaCrosse three months ago and traded a 99 Regal GSE. I loved the Regal, but the premium fuel was getting expensive. I expected to get 23 MPG on the LaCrosse and am getting 19. I expected a performance hit over the Regal and I got it. I got 22 MPG with the Regal with EPA rating of 18/26. The LaCrosse is rated 19/27 on regular gas. The car is quiet and comfortable with nice features. I can live with the performance hit, but the mileage is tough to take at $3 per gallon. Anyone considering a CXS should be aware of what you will be getting on mileage. So far I have had no warranty issues. This one is my tenth GM car and will be my last. All in all I should have bought a Toyota!


Best Features

Remote starting is great on hot days and I am sure it will be equally appreciated on cold ones. Memory settings for seats etc. is also nice. I am tall and my seat position is not what most people like, so when someone changes my seat position it comes right back where I had it.


Worst Features

Gas mileage and preformance are poor on the CXS. Probably better mileage with the 3800 engine, but even worse performance.
