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!
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.
Gas mileage and preformance are poor on the CXS. Probably better mileage with the 3800 engine, but even worse performance.
This is my 4th Buick. The LaCrosse is everything the advertisements say. I wanted it because of the quiet and smooth ride. Quite an improvement over the Regal. I have had my CXL for 2 months and i am quite satisfied. I already have over 3700 miles on it. At first I was disappointed in the gas mileage. But after my last road trip encompassing 600 miles I was stasfied. I averaged just under 29 MPG on the highway (which the sticker indicates). However, city driving drops the MPG considerably. I really love the way the car performed in rainy conditions, and the headlamps are nice and bright.Overall I have no complaints.

Some blind spots due to the rear head rests. Location of Cruise control on steering wheel is awkward. I need to take my eyes off the road to locate it. I liked it better on the directional/wiper control.
Love the car - traded in a 2004 Rendevous - hated that one. Big trunk, OnStar, remote start, XM Radio big plus.Gas mileage still on the bubble - have only gone 400 miles. Beautiful car - Been a Park Ave. owner for years UNTIL the Rendevous. LaCrosse is perfect size. I'm a 25 year REALTOR so need a nice roomy car. LaCrosse meets the criteria so far!!
XM Radio - I'd put a portable one in my Rendevous and have one at home. Can't live without it!!
I bought my LaCrosse a few months ago and I really like it a lot. I traded in a small SUV because I really wanted the comfort of a sedan again. I am 38, but and in a professional line of work, so I wanted to buy a car that is classy. This car fits the bill! It is absolutely beautiful inside. The wood grain is what sold me (yes, I know it's not real-but I like it). The thing I am most disappointed in the handling. The steering has some play and I think it needs to be tighter. I agree with others that the trunk is awkward to close. I wish I bought a higher trim level but it's still a great value.
Auto-headlamps; radio; beautiful interior and exterior; powerful engine; comfortable and quiet.
Tighter steeting; better gas mileage; A/C vents in the back; fold-down back seats in all models. Car would remember some radio setting for pop, classical, etc. and that A/C recirculation button would stay on. Everytime I start the car I have to turn it on again.
