Another Good Buick....but
By James Lorenz on


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


I am pleased with my Lacrosse except for local gas mileage. On the highway (trips) it gets over 30+ mpg, but around home only about 12-14 mpg. My old Century did far better than that. Also, the headrests are not angled forward like the old Century. I feel they should be touching the neck and head without having to lean your head back. Ride and performance are as good as my Century. The Lacrosse has some creaks and groans that I will be telling the dealer about at my next checkup.

Best Features

Remote starting. OnStar.

Worst Features

Better local fuel economy. Forward tilting headrests. Clothing hooks on rear seat hand holds. Put cruise control back on turn signal lever. All buttons are out of line of vision and feel the same. Have to look down to verify selection. Old turn signal location was easily operated by feel.
