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


Got the 08 CX new as a Company Car Good: Very supportive seats. A lot of standard features for base model. Bad: Fuel mileage is horrible. I'm lucky to get 24 highway and avg 16 city. My Honda Odyssey gets better mileage and it is taller, heavier, and has more hp. Driver seat started squeaking at 20k miles-I only weigh 185lbs. Brakes went at 20k miles- almost all highway. I've never had brakes go anywhere near that quickly. Steering wheel made a clicking sound- several dealers couldn't find the problem. Left windshield wiper splashes water on right side and right wiper missed it. key fob died-even after repl. btry. A lot of minor annoying problems that were expensive and inconvenient to fix

Best Features

Love the leather wrapped steering wheel; standard options on base model- Onstar, satellite radio, dual automatic climate control

Worst Features

4 speed tranny outdated; add a gear or two for better fuel mileage. Improve build quality on seat springs, brakes, steering. Interior styling is cheap looking compared to comparable vehicles. Can't open sunroof w/o also opening a window or else severe buffeting. Not the case on my Honda.
