Hi lacrosse2013, I am sorry to hear about the issue you are having with your Buick. I would like to research this for you. Can you private message me your full name, address, phone number, Vehicle Identification number, and approximate mileage on your vehicle please? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org "Attn Crystal" in the subject line please. Look forward to hearing from you:-) Kindest Regards, Crystal L GM Customer Care
Hi, Our 2012 Buick lacrosse displays a message indicating a suspension problem. We have brought it back to the dealer a couple of times. They find nothing wrong, and have changed / replaced nothing. At the same time the air conditioner stops working. Curious if others have had this problem and had a similar problem... And hopefully have it fixed. Less than 20k miles on the car.
Have a NEW 2012 Lacrosse 4cy with e-assist. I have been averging 25 mpg in mixed driving. No issue here. My HUGE issue is with highway mileage. 26-27 mpg with cruise set and no AC. What gives Buick??? Horribly overstated highway mileage. I just got rid of 2005 Prius with 300K on the odometer (which I still averaged 40+mpg the day I junked it)for this American car hoping to get 30mpg...Could ... Read More
Sarah, I'm having a problem with my 2011 Buick Lacrosse CSX radio as well. I'm not sure of everything that is wrong with it, but the pause button doesn't work.

And when the dealer did a reset the other day, it didn't help anything, and still the pause button doesn't work. In investigating ... Read More
Hi there cira!

New Buicks are overpriced, too heavy, and gutless creatures and my Florida dealer is on my "short list." Little harsh there? I find my 2012 LaCrosse to be just fine. 0 to 60 in under 7 seconds is hardly "gutless" I'll agree it is a bit heavy, but otherwise a nice effort and one of the best GM cars in well over a decade.

I have discovered that I miscalculated my mileage on the 755 mile trip. It was actually 32.2 mpg... and then 33.3 mpg on my return trip. Not too shabby for 10 mph over the posted speed limit.
That is disappointing. Mine came from the factory with a crease in the left rear quarterpanel which was obviously there before the paint went on. Also the door seals at the front edge of front doors had big gaps. I have seen a few where the seal is good, but very few. This certainly brings into question the ability of their robots and the people that calibrate them. You will have ... Read More
Hi foosman9469. Did you say that you saw an advertisement for a 2011 Lacrosse at this price? Did you mean a 2012 model? GM has pulled the plug on its lease support for 2011 models, so it doesn't make sense to lease one any longer. Ally's current special lease rate on the 2012 Buick Lacrosse is 1.1%. This special lease rate can be combined with a $3,825 cash incentive plus the ... Read More
My first 2,359 miles were suburban driving, and I average 23.8 mpg. Yesterday I took a 755 mile trip @ speed limit + 10 mph and average 29.4 mpg. I'm curious as to what my mileage would be at 70 mph.
I wish I had read this before I bought a new 2012 LaCrosse. Just got it on Monday and had it for 1 hour and Transmission went out. It has 44 Miles on it. Dealer told me they have had no issues with this sort of problem. BULL!!!
Totally agree, i'll keep you all posted.
Thanks, GMCust and Dodge Man, i think i will have the car looked at by the dealer and see what they say.
Sarah, I understand that real world mpg can vary due to all of those factors but it seems like it would be really difficult for a 2012 Lacrosse with E-assist to see mileage under 19 mpg unless someone was really trying hard to make that happen. It would be interesting to hear if you hear back regarding the issue and possible resolution.
juniorjunior, Congratulations on your new 2012 LaCrosse! I can understand why you may be feeling disappointed about your fuel economy. The EPA's fuel economy estimates are designed to allow consumers to comparison shop, but your fuel economy will almost certainly vary from EPA's fuel economy rating. This is based on a number of factors, such as weather, road conditions, your driving and maintenance habits, and your use of air conditioning. www.fueleconomy.gov ... Read More

Hello tjc78 Thanks for your reply. No other car on their lot has this issue. The best I can explain it is the door is flush near the windows. At the bottom is is not flush with the rear door or the molding. It protrudes out. I will contact the GM Rep. Thanks!
Does this fall under the lemon law? I wouldn't say it does, but the GM rep who just answered your post is a good place to start to get it settled. I don't understand how it can't be aligned. Have you checked out other LaCrosses at the dealer's lot? Is your car different than those, if so it can be made right.

From that start date, Lacrosses with Intellilink would possibly start showing up at our dealerships within 6-8 weeks. I hope this helps to ... Read More

Really? And just what are the Hyundai's mysterious "set of issues"? Do you have evidence that Hyundai is paying automotive journalists to praise their products, or is that something you made up?

nferr, Congratulations on the purchase of your new baby. You mentioned your purchase was model year 2012 but I believe it is probably a 2011 since the CXL trim level was dropped after 2011 and replaced with seven new "Group" flavors for 2012. Nonetheless, enjoy the ride and welcome to the growing and satisfied Buick LaCrosse family.
Irrelevant? Don't be absurd. They're still Hyundais, for good and bad. The Genesis has hardly been the second coming the Hyundai cheerleaders claim it would be and I expect the Azera to be widely praised by the so-called automotive journalists but have its own set of issues in the real world. One thing Hyundai does better than everyone else, without question, is the ability to get automotive websites and others to ... Read More

Pretty hard to judge from just a picture. I see they added front end sensors. That color and wheels are not particularly attractive to me. If it was not for the bumper on front I'd think it could be a Regal or Buick Century. Having the bumper stick out like that may be insurance reasons. Less damage in small accidents.
The Buick Park Avenue (latest Chinese version) is a really nice car. How is it different from the LaCrosse? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d3/New_Buick_Park_Avenue.j- pg/800px-New_Buick_Park_Avenue.jpg
I just figured it out. With the Lucerne gone, the LaCrosse is now the flagship of the Buick brand. And to be top dog, the model must be substantial in size, quality, luxurious amenities and performance. So the 300+ hp makes sense. However, if this is the intent, then a 4 cylinder, LaCrosse CX with cloth seats diminishes the brand. Furthermore, the upcoming Verano (a Chevy Cruze clone) dilutes the brand ... Read More
