Bad Gas Milage and Poor Pick up
By barbara Kocanda on


2006 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


I was told by the dealership that this car gets at least 22 miles to gallon, but after driving it for 3 months I have come to find out that I only get 16 to 18 miles to a gallon. What a disappointment. Plus, this car has zero pick up. I will probably trade this car in as soon as possible.

Best Features

Leather seats

Worst Features

The dash board lights need to be brighter, better gas mpg.

If you say it has zero pick up and it's getting 16-18 mpg when it should be around 22, it sounds like it's working harder than it has to almost like a parking brake was partially on or something. Definitely have it looked at because the 3.8 V6 is a good engine (one of the few out of GM) and you should see better than 21 mpg fuel economy and better acceleration.
