2005 Buick LaCrosse CXS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I really shopped and already have an '04 buick century.. The LaCrosse is only slightly quieter, mainly the engine, but tire noise is there. Also the seats are not as comfortable as the Century and the ride seems stiffer... Power in the LaCrosse is smoother and more responsive, and fully loaded on vacation to Florida we got 28 MPG. If the Century is replaced, then the LaCrosse may take its place, but ride quality and seats are an area for improvement...


Best Features

It looks great and the fit and finish are world class.. The remote start is worth it for both summer and winter. The steering wheel controls for audio / CD, temperature, etc. helps keep your eyes on the road. Big trunk for a family.. Smooth, powerful and quiet engine..


Worst Features

Softer seats, quieter tires, softer ride

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


Review

The car is very good on the road. It has a very quiet interior, and you dont hear road noises. I believe the gas consumption is about 18 to 20 miles in the city, and on the road it is 25 to 27 miles to the gallon.


Best Features

The insrument panel. The information center. The safety features. The new pull out back seat feature, which lets you put items from the trunk to the back seat.


Worst Features

The car could have a little more room in the back passenger comparment.

Review

It has a nice exterior look, and it doesn't look like every other car in the parking lot. It has a very comfortable ride and take bumps well. As a person who has driven smaller cars in the past, it was easy to get used to.


Best Features

Easy to use controls. The driver information center is very convenient. The back up warning feature is handy.


Worst Features

None

Review

This car reminds me of the Olds Aurora in design. The quaility of workmanship is fantastic.It's very comfortable to drive, with effortless steering and smooth acceleration. Great radio sound. We made a wise choice with the LaCrosse over the Ford 500, which is under powered.


Best Features

Driver Information Center


Worst Features

Trunk, the pull down handle is on the wrong side

Review

The steering takes a little getting used to after driving for many years with power steering. The panel lighting is great, and the automatic lights on/off function is welcomed. I like the safety feature of the daytime running lights. A year of free OnStar is enough to get me to pay for it when it comes up for renewal even though it is rather expensive. Fuel economy could be better as could the rear seat room which is very tight especially in terms of head room. All in all a very good card with a great appearance (especially in cardinal red metallic).


Best Features

Automatic lights


Worst Features

More back seat room. Folding side mirrors. More rear window visibility. Better fuel economy.
