2012 Buick LaCrosse Sedan Touring Group 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

i have had this car scene 10/12, i have had the issue of the front door holding water in the seals that go around the door, the doors will hold the water until you open the doors, after it rains and you open the doors, check the seals and have water inside the seals. as of today, the dealer and the factory has told me that this is normal ( i call ???? on this ) We are in the process of have GM buy the car back. So if you have a Lacrosse, check you front doors.

Review

The curvature of the doors make it impossible to get in or out without hitting my head unless I fold like a rag doll. Not to mention creating quite a blind spot when looking over the shoulder for traffic. The lumbar support in the drivers seat is too large even when reset to zero, thus making my back hurt even after a short drive. This car is so low to the ground that even curbs become a hazard! Dealership's driver ran into a curb and caused extensive damage. Between seat console is awkward, pinches fingers when extending the arm-rest and storage is limited. The steering column is clumsy to adjust, why isn't it electric? Can't open trunk from inside????


Favorite Features

The look is nice, and the interior colors are appealing. Ride is smooth.


Suggested Improvements

Round the window so that entry and exit are tall people friendly. Steering column should be electric. Move seat console forward. Raise the heigth of the car at least 6 inches.

Review

I have had my Lacrosse for just over one month. Pros: Excellent ride and comfort. Reliability great compared to my 2008 Cadillac. Cadillac in shop 3 times in first month of ownership. Buick running great (knock on wood). Workshipship is excellent - no rattles, doors, hood, trunk fit is fine. Fuel consumption is as advertised - over 27 on highway, averaging slightly over 17 in the city. Con: Reflection of the dashboard on windshield is distracting and blinding at times. Would recommend highly over the CTS - mine was an overpriced piee of junk.


Suggested Improvements

Change the dashboard material so it does not reflect on the windshield.

Review

purchased a 2012 lacrosse touring edition a couple of weeks ago. i just passed 1500 miles and I'm getting 20.8 miles/gal.(not from the info menu but, for you guys who went to public schools, it was 1500 miles divided by 72.11 gallons of gasoline) i'll take that. car is quiet and handles pretty good cornering. braking is good also. harman cardon stereo good along with the navigation system. HID front and LED rear lighting superb. tour. ed. comes w/ navigation, rear camera, blind side alert, heads up display, 19" wheels and much much more. New this year is a 300 HP V-6 with twin chrome exhaust tips. i traded 2008 lax.Super(my review SU--PER 3/08)and this is a totally different car.


Favorite Features

By far my favorite feature is the Flash to Pass feature. It looks like flash bulbs going off. Whenever i'm at a building where i can see my reflection, i always Flash to Pass. i guess people think i'm nuts. 300HP and 6-speed auto w/manual shift(sport mode) is great too.Blue tooth, memory mirrors, cool/heat seats all great


Suggested Improvements

no. 1 suggestion would be LED daytime running lights like an Audi. Regal Turbo has LED DRLs so i think Buick really missed the boat on this car. Rear wheel drive would be great too.
