Love/Hate this Buick
By dulloldad on


2008 Buick LaCrosse Super 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Purchased 08 Lacrosse Super in January, 2009.
Currently have about 42 k miles.
Engine, 5.3L V-8, has been apart twice to replace lifters (GM TSB #06-06-05-001E). considerable vibration when AFM in 4 cyl mode (GM TSB #06-06-05-001E) Clear coat peeled from door pillars, glover box door latch broke, power Drivers Seat gear broke!
Memory seats and power recline were not available!
Have had same AFM problems with 5.3L in my 2011 Suburban!!
Have had 11 NEW GM products and 2 new Jeeps plus several used cars/trucks since 1980.
Will not buy another GM product new or used!!

Best Features

Comfort (except NO memory seats or Power Recline on front seat backs).

Worst Features

From what I have seen new LaCrosse (now largest Buick) has less interior room and smaller trunk. GM needs to get it right the first time and not wait for years before fixing known problems.
