2008 Buick LaCrosse CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Much will be a comparison of our 2008 Buick LaCrosse vs. our 2001 Century. Buick advertises a smoother, quieter ride. This has proven true. Our car come with the convenience package which gives us heated seats, lumbar support and much electronic instrumentation which is good, but hard to learn & understand. The LaCrosse I believe has a little less headroom over the door when getting in and out which has made it a little more difficult for my slightly stiff 80 year old 5'10" frame. The Century had directional lights which lit up the road in the direction you were turning, which we miss. The LaCrosse does not. The gas mileage has gone down considerably. 19.5 MPG vs. 23 mpg. Good car overall.

Favorite Features

Styling, handling, smooth quiet ride, XM radio and comprehensive electronic instrumentation.

Suggested Improvements

Bring back the turn signal directional lights. A little more cushioning on the seat backs. Bring back the gas mileage. The 2001 Buick LeSabre with the 3.8 leter engine got better gas milage then the 2001 Buick Century with the 3.1 liter engine. Why shouldn't the 2008 3.8 Ltr. LaCross do better?
