2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased this car used with 22,000 miles. Initially, I was very impressed with the design of the exterior and the interior materials. However, with time I have been mildly disappointed. No major complaints, just room for improvement. Like every other review, I am also disappointed with the fuel economy. Also, the 3.8 liter engine is not nearly as quiet or refined as other reviews suggest. The seats are unsupportive and stiff, although the leather is of very good quality. Have had an ongoing problem with the airbag light coming on for no apparent reason. Finally, the trunk lid has no handle to pull it up. Sounds minor but is very inconvenient.
Quality of the leather interior, stereo has good sound, acceleration is more than adequate, very nice exterior aesthetically.
More supportive seats, handle on the trunk lid, quieter powerplant, especially on cold winter mornings, roomier rear-seat
