Vehicle

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

Review

Great car--quiet, responsive even with base engine, reasonable gas mileage averaging 25 mpg in city/highway driving. Interior treatments give effect of more expensive vehicle. Basic plastic wheel covers needs to be improved since noise is evident when windows open. Headroom is tight, otherwise interior dimensions are more than adequate. Rear end is not in character with Buick. Needs taillight treatment across entire rearend as in recent Centurys, Regals, LeSabres. Right now, the rear looks too much like a Taurus. ABS/Traction Control needs to be standard on a car of this caliber (GM is including it on 2006 models). Recall is in effect but no dealers have parts to make repairs.

Favorite Features

Quietness, interior trim, gauges, general interior and exterior appearance.

Suggested Improvements

Fold down rear seat needs to be standard, as does key lock for trunk. No point in lighted PRDL in floor shift when selector is only on dashboard. Buick needs to better identify standard and optional equipment and colors in brochures, as conflicting information exists in Buick literature.
