LaCrosse CXS- New Class of World Class?
By Tom D. on
2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
This is a beautiful car; the exterior design with 19" wheel touring package is striking. Inside is magnificently appointed and the 11 speaker Harmon- Kardon audio system is superb. GM is proud of their collaboration with the Chinese in it's design and building a true Lexus competitor. Then you open the trunk; which looks like they collaborated with the old Soviet block. Is that imitation rat fur? What's up with those hinges? Steering wheel 5 degrees off-center and a couple bogus service messages for suspension system- new model gremlins no doubt. Clearly though, this car is a huge improvement over any GM car I've ever owned.
Harmon-Kardon sound system, nav system, HID headlights, HUD, overall cabin quietness and smooth ride. Elegant interior. Reliability remains to be seen.
More cabin storage, trunk makeover, better gas mileage (only averaging 21 mpg so far in mixed hwy and town driving). Smaller A, B, and C pillars to improve outward visibility.
