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


Review

Had trouble from the beginning with slipping on traction control, alternator, and engine brackets. Put too much money into it right at the beginning. With only 2200 of these made, this was an experiment that failed. Never buy a Buick again...

Review

Awesome awesome awesome vehicle!!! Before this car, we owned a 1997 Buick Riviera. We loved that car to death. But the engine blew, so we decided to buy another used car. We looked at six different kinds of cars and SUVs. Not only did we tend to steer clear of other Buicks, just for a change, it didn't work. The minute my husband got behind the wheel, it was love at first sight/drive!!! Lol so in conclusion, we stayed with Buick because we knew we were getting a great car for the money.

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


Review

The car is great but has poor reliability. All the engine gaskets had to be replaced due to oil leaks, the oil pump failed which scored the the crankshaft, the key FOB's fail about every year or so (I am on #5
right now) and now the air bag warning light is on. It is in the shop now to find out what the problem is. The day/night dashboard lighting has not working properly for the last few years. The front wheel bearing failed a year ago. The CD changer does not work at times and the radio changes stations without warning at times.
I have 55000 miles on it. I bought it new.


Best Features

It is quiet, peppy and comfortable. I enjoy driving it when it is working.


Worst Features

GM does not have to improve a thing since I will never buy a GM car again.

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


Review

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.

Review

I just bought an 08 LaCrosse Super, and so far, I love it.
It is roomy, and the heated seats feel great after a long day at work.
I like how it isn't over the top with gizmos and gadgets on the dash, but has enough to make me feel I am getting what I paid for.
The ride is smooth, and it isn't jumpy when accelerating.
I like the shorter stopping distances.
I have seen a lot of reviews elsewhere that seem to think this is a sports car.
No, this is a luxury sedan.
I'm not in my 80's I'm in my 20's, and enjoy all of the comfort, and all of the horsepower.
I don't intend on using this car to run the Daytona 500, so, who cares about RWD vs FWD?
It's big, comfy and should be great in snow


Best Features

Large cabin, large trunk, comfortable seats, heated seats, quiet smooth ride,


Worst Features

I would love an aux outlet.
