We purchased the LaCrosse despite the Buick "labeling" we would get from friends. Once people take a look at it, (inside and out), noth compares under 50k--Nothing! The throw in the 100k warranty, quiet ride and reliability-No brainer. Love the car
Facebook link on navigation, Hard drive for personal playlists, 3d nav, interior "mood" lighting, interior cabin, we have friends that just bought a Mercedes--same finish, stiched dash, ect, the Lacrosse has more pop. Way too many tech gizmoes to name, such a cool car!
Get a cooler rear spoiler, current spoiler does not match up to the potential on the car
My Lacrosse has been in the Gm shop once a week for the past 6 weeks and towed in once a week for the past 3 weeks. It overheats and dies every othe day. Buick is a joke and the inconvenience they have caused me with no compassion from them is not worth buying another Buick or any GM automobile.
Our 2010 is in the shop with tranny problem and we've only had it a few months. Its been in the shop for thee weeks now awaiting parts that seem to come each time with missing parts in the order claims the service manager. They are paying for my rental but that doesnt cut it for me. Today i called buick customer service and I expect to hear back from my district rep by monday. GM has to know about this problem, and they should issue a recall because something is terribly wrong. Our problem started with the car idling a little high and i let that go but a few days later it didnt want to shift into gear. Finally shifted into gear and heard a loud noise but it drove ok after that. The check eg
Update of an earlier review. Driving my 2010 CXS to work today w/just 3400+ miles and just shy of 4 mo's ownership the car died at a traffic light. All electronics worked but the engine was totally dead and would not even attempt a re-start. Had to get towed by the dealer (Buick Roadside tried to send me to a dealer that was no longer a Buick dealer) and after a day of having it don't seem to have much of an answer. Despite months of research and reservations about picking a new model year car I seem to have made a mistake.
Interior, quiet ride.
Improve trunk size and finish, increase interior storage. RELIABILITY- totally compromised for me now.
This car is fun to drive. Sit in bumper to bumper traffic an hour a day, and am comfortable in here. Bluetooth and sirius help a lot. Seats good for me (5'2") and good back legroom for 3 adult. A little stutter on shifting, but overall runs very well. (had a 2003 avalon, decided not to buy another) gas mileage ok, 21 mpg. Middle console not well designed. you can't pull it out and have 2 cups in holders. No cup holders in back. the designers did not consider user's needs. storage limited inside and trunk just ok. lots of compliments to date.. you need rear park assist. wish i'd purchased the blind side too. but price became too steep. oversized sunroof kind of chintzy with the fabric
on star, bluetooth, seats(leather, heating/cooling) smooth ride (19" wheels too..chrome is beautiful) Nice heavy car, I feel safe. ESC is good as well.
visibility, front pillars, mid pillars, no view out of side rear for passengers and backing up without rear park assist would be dangerous.
