LaCrosse is Very Good
By Bud on
2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Negatives are few and mostly unimportant: engine is noisy on outside of car; outside mirrors cannot collapse; seatbacks recline by lever instead of power; no tire pressure indicators (bad oversight); Overall mpg with a 75/25 city/hwy ratio is only 17 mpg (EPA rating is 20- 29). That's it! Car is very quiet, has excellent buttoned-down ride, excellent driveability, very good acceleration, esp. at highway speeds and is a pleasure to drive. Fit and finish are excellent, and we like the styling and the interior layout - it's clean. In short, we are very pleased with the 2005 Buick LaCrosse.
Steering wheel redundant controls (really well done); clean and simple dash controls (radio, HVAC, information system); back-up radar.
Power seat back recliners, collapseable side view mirrors, tire pressure monitors.
