2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Never owned a Buick before and after reviewing other cars in this class,I thought this was a good choice. Initially I liked this car very much. I noticed the problem on the first trip of about 150 miles. At highway speeds of 50-65 MPH and trying to maintain a safe distance from the car in front of me. The accelerator pedal seems to have a dead zone. It doesn't respond under normal foot pressure to maintain the speed that traffic flow allowes. As I apply a slight pressure on the gas pedal, nothing happens. As I increase the pressure, a sudden burst of acceleration is felt with the teck jumping 500-750RPM. This unusual condition is very strenuous on long trips of this constant awareness.

Best Features

Exterior Style and Interior Layout. Remote Start and Quite Ride

Worst Features

Go back to the proven Cable Linkage from the gas pedal to the engine instead of this electric module. Awkward closing the trunk lid
