An outstanding vehicle in performance, quality and styling. The CSX model is a Buick that should appeal to all kinds of drivers. Young people that drove mine loved it and wished that they could have one. Buick has to change the focus of its advertising, stressing the performance and styling of the LaCrosse. It looks a lot better than the Honda, Nissan and Toyota "luxury" clones. These all look alike, exterior and interior. There seems to be more of a difference between owner and "expert" evaluations for the LaCrosse than for most other cars. Owners love it, "experts" rate it so-so. The experts must have an image of the "average age of 65" Buick owner embedded in their mind.
The eye catching exterior styling. Everyone comments on how good it looks. Very good passing acceration that is needed for interstate driving.
Change the sun roof, the wind noise when it is open makes it worthless. Putting the OnStar above the windshield is goofy. Where's the exterior trunk handle? Why doesn't GM use locking gas caps?
Great value, design and style, evolution and improvement comparing to earlier Buicks. Being 37, I found this one much more appealing to younger drivers but still with the famous smooth ride and Buick quality and reliability. Superb ride and build quality, style, quietness and handling, car has enough power with good old 3.8L engine and expected fuel economy and better brakes and suspension. Long story short - really great car!
Black onyx color with gray interior, 40/60 rear folding seat, remote starter, driver info center and column shift
It needs beter tires, and parking brake location. ABS and side airbags not standard for 2005 models
I love this new car. The only item with a problem was a brake sensor recall. I am not completely satisfied as the brakes still seem to grab and are not as smooth as I would like although they do stop well.
The interior of the car is really comfortable even on long journeys
GMC needs to continue to look into the braking issue
Smooth is the best way to describe the LaCrosse. You can keep your SUVs, I'm back in a sedan and loving it. Controls are well placed and easy to use (No tiny buttons to try and find). Seating position is comfortable..thanks to a telescoping steering column. And quiet.....so quiet.
The 9 speaker stereo system rocks! The 3.6 moves quick and the "touch" of "G" is great.
Trunk is not comfortable to close. Strange interior handle to pull the lid down, then you need your other hand to close. Usually the other hand is full! Why can't we get better fuel economy? After 30 years of improved technology you would think so.
