Buick Scores a Hat Trick
By GW Cooper on
Vehicle2005 Buick LaCrosse CXS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewLaCrosse (Allure in Canada)is an endless delight. Beautiful, well proportioned exterior and sumptuous interior with excellent ergonomics combine to create a refined driving experience. Form, fit and finish are well integrated to create a unity of purpose that is first class. Powertrain performance is superior and seemless. Flat torque curve, smart safety features, agile suspension system together instill confidence in treating the CXS as a true sports sedan. Quiet tuning and a superb sound system combine to offer distortion-free sound studio quality and listening pleasure be it jazz (Diana Kroll), classics ( Vivaldi's Four Seasons with Perleman), folk-rock (the Eagles, Beatles, Pink Floyd.
Best FeaturesA pleasing design that is well implemented. OnStar is a better, safer NAV system than DVD-based units. Remote engine starter also activates HVAC to bring interior quiclto your comfort settings. Instrument panel layout and controls are intuitive. Driver Info Centre is well thought out and displayed.
Worst FeaturesMore technical info in Operator's Manual on key safety systems and powertrain. Otherwise, this Buick is a dream to drive.
