I think I've heard it before, but it is not your father's Buick! The ride and handling are great. It's extremely quiet. My only knock would be not being able to purchase the 3.8L engine on the CXS model. The 3.8L was plenty of engine for my '01 LeSabre (for me) and got great mileage for a large car. If the LaCrosse holds up, it will be my best car so far.
