I used to love this NEW car but it stopped while driving.
The entire electrical system shut down.
I was able to pull over but don't feel comfortable driving car now.
Can't imagine turning in front of a vehicle and IT DECIDES to stop!
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.
14k miles....The ride, handling & acceleration are great!
I've previously owned German, Japanese, Ford & Chrysler...returning to try GM.
Cadillac, Lincoln and Lexus do not compare in ride, handling & price in this category. I test drove them.
Driver comfort is great! The AWD is sweet in Winter, but drops the MPG all year.
Large blind spots side & rear, so you need the rear camera.
Camera only comes with antiquated GM Navigation system with old maps. No DC plugs in dash for phones or GPS. Fuel filler is on passenger side. Fuel tank is too small.
I just purchased the 2011 Buick Lacrosse.
The two other cars that I test drove were the Lexus ES 350 and the Lincoln MKS with ecoboast.
The Lacrosse was by far the best value.
The Lexus was bland and much more expensive than the Lacrosse.
price and styling, I believe the cars were comparable.
The MKS was 10K more than the Lacrosse and in my opinion, was unattractive.
We leased a new lacrosse cxl last sat and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It rides great. As comfortable as a cadillac. Steering is good, features are awesome for the money. Quiet fantastic stereo.Love the fact I can control my car with my phone through onstar. Ive read the negative comments and funny thing. Most of them all end with the same sentence" Should have gotten another toyota". Someone is coming on here and lying. Mentions of hitting your head while getting in and out and not liking where buttons are placed and cup holders... You would have noticed these things on a test drive.Toyotas are boring death traps. ASk the families that died what they think. thank you GM for another great car:)
