Lacrosse V6 is a Good Buy
By vazoom on


2011 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Now on my 1st month of ownership of the Lacrosse CX V-6. Pros: recently took a 1K mile trip to S. Virginia--mileage (22-23 mpg) as predicted on the open road with cruise control; very comfortable ride; great handling in country road turns along with unexpected braking for slow-moving traffic/animals crossing path. Very responsive acceleration with the V-6. Driving controls and info displays are very readable; "blue" lighting is a definite plus in night driving. Excellent craftmanship in interior construction. Cons: greatly reduced trunk space compared to older Buick Century; rear visibility (for parking) is just adequate even with beeping sensor. Overall: excellent buy vs Lexus

Favorite Features

Lacrosse has the typical, very comfortable Buick ride. And, Buick sylists finally hit the mark in updating Buick interior and exterior image/appearance. Have had several comments in the vein of: "That's a Buick?" Exterior craftmanship is finally where it should be--equal of Lexus, Maxima, Audi, in this size; but, without the price tag.

Suggested Improvements

Lacrosse rear visibility needs a camera view to accurately show objects to the rear of the car especially when doing any reverse maneuvering. The "beeping" sensor simply isn't enough to have a clear picture of what's behind the car--especially if you have children / animals in an obscured view. Rear-view camera is really needed. Lacrosse could do with more trunk space; greatly reduced from older Century. This was probably sacrificed to achieve the exterior look and spacious interior.
