I really shopped and already have an '04 buick century.. The LaCrosse is only slightly quieter, mainly the engine, but tire noise is there. Also the seats are not as comfortable as the Century and the ride seems stiffer... Power in the LaCrosse is smoother and more responsive, and fully loaded on vacation to Florida we got 28 MPG. If the Century is replaced, then the LaCrosse may take its place, but ride quality and seats are an area for improvement...
It looks great and the fit and finish are world class.. The remote start is worth it for both summer and winter. The steering wheel controls for audio / CD, temperature, etc. helps keep your eyes on the road. Big trunk for a family.. Smooth, powerful and quiet engine..
