I'm a 45 year old Buick owner
By Joe S. on
2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I have had this car for 2 months. Purchased w/15K miles on it. CXL model rides very smooth on the highway. More comfortable than my Saturn L. This car is rated 20/29 mpg but I cannot understand why I only average about 14 mpg in city driving. Highway mpg is great..lives up to its 30 mpg. Steering is a little balky. You can feel it roll and dip on sharp turns. All and all this a comfortable sedan. Looks a little like the Lexus LS330 until you look at the grille. The grille and layout of the front is the thing only way you know it is a Buick. Also, for some reason, every time I turn on the air vents the AC is on. I think if the in city gas mileage was better I would enjoy this car more.
XM radio, driver info center, interior programmable lighting, nice size trunk, powerful ventilation system
Brighter dash controls, controls in steering standard, side front head lines are a little tight
