Black Buick CX
By Tom on
2006 Buick LaCrosse CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
This is my first Buick. This is a company vehicle so I get my use out of it and drive many miles. 1200 so far and have had it 2 weeks. The CX is loaded with all the basics, ABS, Traction control, remote, etc. The only option was the aluminum wheels which I highly recommend for looks and value. This car rides excellent. mileage is claimed at 20/ 30 and I am getting about 28 mostly highway. The 3.8 has more power than a Taurus V6 and is adequate. The transmission is OK. Great mileage for a car of this size. Positives- Interior very well done, looks rich. Quiet. nice ride, not sporty but not boaty. The black looks like a lexus 300, cool! Very nice fitments. The stereo is excellent.
Style A+++, Ride, adequate power, Excellent legroom for taller people, much better than Taurus. TONS of options on base model including power seat. All riders have commented about how much bigger it feels compared to previous Taurus models. Trunk room excellent. High end for the money, nice job GM
Cup holders stink, too far back next to the console, would rather have column shift for more cup room.Trunk operation does not open far enough to open easily. Excellent stereo but equalizer settings over done, let the owner decide what sounds right. Paint job on top excellent, sides terrible peel.
