I have owned Buicks for ten years (2000 Lucerne and current 2006 Lucerne CXL). Buicks have beed a preferred car in my family since 1935. The 2008 LaCrosse lives up to Buick's reputation for excellence in interior and exterior design. Handling is responsive (I have the optional ESC); performance is adequate; and interior road noise is minimal even at freeway speeds. Fit and finish is outstanding.
Interior and exterior fit and finish; quality craftmanship; quite ride; handling with optional ESC; overall value (ROI); competive price within class. OnStar phone and Directions and Connections features.
Fuel economy need to be improved and is less than other vehicels in this class (the LaCrosse averages approximately 20 mpg overall). Exterior mirrors should be capable of folding in to reduce exteior footprint width.
