2011 Buick LaCrosse CXL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


My 2011 model is not listed in Edmunds, an obvious oversite - Mine is a automatic FWD 3.6v engine/transmission - not the AWL.
I drive about 50k per year - I have not had any issues at all.
I purchased with 23.5 k Miles - had a weather strip replaced at purchase time.
At 65 mph, I get about 29mpg, at 72 mph, about 26mpg.
So far, I have not had to replace a thing.

I did have engine light turn on- I am in harsh weather, and the sensor for misfire of a cylinder is really sensitive - this happened only once - I reset it and havent seen it in 15k miles sense.

Best Features

Style - interior lighting and design, leather quality, performance/efficiency for a heavy luxury car. Handling is real good. Impressive looking outside too - quality of paint seems good. Lots of people comment on how good the car looks! And yes, Shaq CAN fit in it...

Worst Features

At initial movement only, you hear a slight bump noise which is the compression on driver hose. Nothing can be done and it is only a one time thing - not a big deal at all. Slight noise that comes from top of seat belt - I touch it and it goes away - happens occasionally.
