A New Kind of Buick
By BadgerBuick on


2005 Buick LaCrosse CXS 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 4A)


An outstanding vehicle in performance, quality and styling. The CSX model is a Buick that should appeal to all kinds of drivers. Young people that drove mine loved it and wished that they could have one. Buick has to change the focus of its advertising, stressing the performance and styling of the LaCrosse. It looks a lot better than the Honda, Nissan and Toyota "luxury" clones. These all look alike, exterior and interior. There seems to be more of a difference between owner and "expert" evaluations for the LaCrosse than for most other cars. Owners love it, "experts" rate it so-so. The experts must have an image of the "average age of 65" Buick owner embedded in their mind.

Best Features

The eye catching exterior styling. Everyone comments on how good it looks. Very good passing acceration that is needed for interstate driving.

Worst Features

Change the sun roof, the wind noise when it is open makes it worthless. Putting the OnStar above the windshield is goofy. Where's the exterior trunk handle? Why doesn't GM use locking gas caps?
