2007 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

So far this has been the 2nd worst car my family has ever owned. We once sent a neon to the scrap yard with 60,000 miles on it. This car gets poor gas milage. On a good day I can get around 22mpg. I've had at least 3 v8 cars that could get around 25 mpg, and they all had a lot more power. There is a clunk in the steering that can't seem to get fixed. There is also a vibration in the front end that won't go away. The front sway bar snapped. The drivers door leaks in the rain. The headlights are always burning out. The transmission slips and then suddenly slams before it takes off. It has needed a four wheel alignment. It was just eating tires. The writing has rubbed off of the buttons for the radio and the heating and air. The letters fall off of the outside too. It just say la rosse. The CXL is totally gone. The back seat is very cramped even for children. When you pop the trunk it is difficult to open unless you have really skinny fingers. The air bag light goes on and off as you drive. The traction control and ABS light come on and go off whenever they feel like it. That doesn't bother me though because when it's slick out the traction control and ABS gets in the way more than it helps on this car. I like having traction control and ABS usually. This car is downright dangerous in the snow. The ABS comes on almost as soon as you touch the pedal. It will make you miss turns. Then when you get back on the gas the traction control is there to cut the power. I feel safer in my 2 wheel drive ford ranger pick up in the snow. The brakes are not powerful enough even on dry pavement really. I'm ready to junk this thing with only 120,000 miles on it. The ranger by that way has 200,000 on it without skipping a beat. I have tried hard to maintain this car, but its useless. To me it is obvious why GM needed a bail out and Ford did not.

Review

Love this LaCrosse.
Have had to barely spend any money on it.
Very reliable, comfortable, and it still looks really good---can't tell it's a 2007!!!

Review

Overall the car has had a lot of problems. The transmission had to be replaced at 28,000. Clear coat came off the doors, and had to be re-painted. The weather seal around the front doors leaked in a rain storm or in the car wash. Car went back to the shop last night for idling rough and probably the CV shafts are going to need to be replaced. I'm not happy with this car at all--One problem after another for the last 30,000 miles.

Review

This has been one of the best vehicles I ever owned. I own a ES300 and we used this car more because of the comfort and the higher miles per gallon. The exterior is boring, but everything else about the car has been very good. Great power in the V6 and no mechanical problem over the two years I have owned the LaCrosse. I run about 30,000 miles a year and the car has 90,000 miles without any major problems, just change the oil, tranny fuel, gas up and go.


Best Features

Power and comfort


Worst Features

The new 2010 design is a major improvement.

Review

Excellent to great car. I have driven GM cars for over 30 years. Only problem experienced so far is the catalytic convertor was replaced this week, with 24,000 plus miles. Bought the car as a demo for the PGA tournaments. The converter is covered under the warranty. I thought GM had the converter problem resolved years ago. Still enjoy the car. A bit small in size.


Best Features

Quiet/smooth ride! Nice styling and interior features. Love the XM Sirrus radio and OnStar. I hope GM, OnStar and XM Sirrius stay in business.


Worst Features

Interior passenger space could more roomier. Surprised that the catalytic convertor had to be replaced at 24,000 plus miles.
