Just got this vehicle about a week ago. Getting lots of looks going down the highway and had several folks stop and ask us what the vehicle was all about. Really like it for the most part. Also tried out a Ford Taurus 2010. Seemed like it had a little more power but not nearly the features of this car. Great value for the money.
Love exterior style. Lighting at night is unique and nice as well. Very comfortable seats- nice leather. Looking forward to heated this winter. AC dual control works nicely.
Miss interior trunk release. Seems like gas and brake pedals are quite close together. How do you attach a front tag?
After buying a RAV4 for the wife a few years ago, I chose to get the all-new, redesigned LaCrosse. The exterior is very stylish, while the interior is clean and contemporary. The drive is quiet and incredibly smooth, slightly better than both the TSX & ES350 I test drove. Steering is responsive (especially in Sport mode) and acceleration is decent. IMO this is one of the best cars GM has ever produced, as the fit & finish of this vehicle is outstanding. Overall, I think the LaCrosse offers excellent value even fully-loaded, it's still reasonably priced compared to other vehicles in its class. So if you're in the market for a luxury sedan, you definitely should consider the Buick LaCrosse.
- Safety: 8 airbags; parking camera - Seating: heated/cooled, power-everything for both driver and passenger; lots of space for rear passengers - Audio: the "Infotainment" (NAV/DVD) system rocks! - Convenience: Bluetooth; audio jack; USB port; built-in garage door opener; heated steering wheel
- Ergonomics: relocate the Shifter so it is at arm's length; reduce C-pillars for better visibility - Convenience: heated/cooled seats for rear passengers
Recent purchase after leasing a loaded Saturn Aura for 3 years. Wanted Mercedes, but too rich for us. Test drove Ford Taurus, Mercury Milan, Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Lincoln Z, and 2008 Mercedes (used, low mileage). Then stopped by Buick and saw Red Jewel Tintcoat with exceptional lines and a cocoa/light cashmere sleek interior. Has comfort package #2 and Entertainment Package with Nav, Backup camera, Blind spot and oversized sunroof. Test drove with my wife. Got out and shut the door - sounded like door closing on a tight seal refrig. Extremely quiet riding and has all the power we need. Fantastic so far and got a good price too.
Quiet ride, pure comfort, all the gadgets are great and worth it. The exterior and interior design is fantastic. Back seats and room in the back is exceptional.
cannot think of any at this time. Other reports speak to lack of front seat storage - as much as we had in the past. Oops! the trunk storage does lack, but if have to give up back seat comfort, we can live with it.
2010 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
This car met and exceeded my expectations! There were features that I didn't expect (tilt mirrors, press to open trunk, full folding rear seat back, auto heat/cool seats w/remote start, etc.). This car has more bells and whistles that any other car around! Not only that, it is a VERY comfortable and quiet car. My wife loves how the seats wrap around more than on her Mercedes. First time with OnStar and very impressed! I'm OK with the fuel cap on the right side! Ambient lighting really looks great at night. Everyone comments on it. Voice activation for nav system could be a little more intuitive! Sometimes need to try 3 or 4 times to get the right phrase. Most issues are minor, love the car!
HUD, Zone Blind Side Alert, Nav system, Articulating headlights, rear camera w/audio alert, OnStar, auto- adjusting sound system, very comfortable ride. Like that I can organize my music on the hard disk and set favorites w/wo shuffle for each.
Better support for bluetooth (VERY limited w/no phone book storage capability). Won't connect to iPhone 3GS for ipod functionality. With today's emphasis on fuel, should have much better gas mileage. Door arm rests wider w/softer edge (digs in after while). Clothes hanger almst not usable where located.
This car is a pure joy to drive and ride in. It has very good acceleration and corners like it is on rails. I haven't discovered much real use for the sport mode yet, but it is fun to drive in that mode. We couldn't find one thing wrong after several thorough inspections. Fit and finish are as good as possible. In the rear seat the car feels like a much larger car. We traded a 2005 LeSabre for this, and we don't feel one bit cramped in the back seat of the Lacrosse. A great creature comfort I haven't read in any professional review is - when the key fob is close to the locked vehicle, it can be unlocked by opening the door handle. What is the use of Lexus now?
The ride and overall feeling of quality and careful design is my most favorite feature. Another favorite is the ability to lock all doors from the key fob and also from the door handles. That is a GREAT idea.
It would be nice to be able to turn off the radio without turning off the navigation system. The trunk is a little bit small, but I don't anticipate it will be a problem. We just got two lawn chairs and two picnic coolers in the trunk last night, with room to spare.
