Buick Scores a Hat Trick
By GW Cooper on


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


LaCrosse (Allure in Canada)is an
endless delight. Beautiful, well
proportioned exterior and sumptuous
interior with excellent ergonomics
combine to create a refined driving
experience. Form, fit and finish are
well integrated to create a unity of
purpose that is first class. Powertrain
performance is superior and seemless.
Flat torque curve, smart safety
features, agile suspension system
together instill confidence in treating
the CXS as a true sports sedan. Quiet
tuning and a superb sound system
combine to offer distortion-free sound
studio quality and listening pleasure
be it jazz (Diana Kroll), classics (
Vivaldi's Four Seasons with Perleman),
folk-rock (the Eagles, Beatles, Pink

Best Features

A pleasing design that is well implemented. OnStar is a better, safer NAV system than DVD-based units. Remote engine starter also activates HVAC to bring interior quiclto your comfort settings. Instrument panel layout and controls are intuitive. Driver Info Centre is well thought out and displayed.

Worst Features

More technical info in Operator's Manual on key safety systems and powertrain. Otherwise, this Buick is a dream to drive.
