Well, after owning several foreign cars including BMW, Mercedes...upper scale american, Lincoln, Cadillac... I was trying hard not to like this car, it's a BUICK! I was so wrong, in love with this car! It handles well, plenty of pep and has just as many if not more gadgets than some of the foreign cars I've had. Gas mileage is a shocker...great on the interstate! I get a lot of compliments even. I absolutely love a Mercedes S class but for the difference in money the Buick holds its place in luxury feel. And maintenance is half the cost also. If you want all the toys and a comfortable car do not miss the Lacrosse when shopping for your next car. Get all options and you'll love your purchase. The only option mine lacks is back seat dvd , single, didn't need it. But enjoy the car immensely! Happy hunting..
Just leased a Carbon Black on Black, turned in my 2011 Regal Turbo, going from sporty to land cruiser and more comfort, which is what I wanted. So far I love the newly designed interior and the simplified layout. Intellilink is nice and easy to use and the voice command is much improved folks. Side Blind Zone Alert is truly wonderful, still make my headcheck though. Update: Three years later, still love this vehicle, never any problems other than the dealer had to replace my battery a few months ago. Have decided to keep this vehicle(buy it). Still looks new, and drives great. The new Lacrosse (2017), sits too low for me and the looks are just ok, resembles the Impala too much in my opinion.
Needed a car more comfortable for my back. I traded my 2015 Focus Titanium for a 2014 Buick Lacrosse and the difference is very noticeable. With the comfort of the front seats and the quiet ride, the 2014 Buick Lacrosse doesn't disappoint. I wanted the hiper strut front suspension and adaptable ride so I looked for a FWD with 19 inch wheels. Everything about the car feel high quality. No rattles and a very solid feel. Love the looks ride of this car. Test drive one. I am impressed.
Bought a CPO 2014 AWD Leather. I bought it with just over 20 miles. It now has 35k miles. In one year, it has been in the shop (in addition to annual inspection / oil changes) for (1) rotor resurfacing, (2) front car seat tracks (x2 separate trips, resulting in now inverse controlling of the seat), (3) recall for airbag issue (4) The radio/nav screen just stopped turning on (still being addressed) (4) resealing of tires at 6/32 tread because TPMS was constantly on (5) check engine light came on for a few days after high speeed acceleration on the highway (that went away a few days later). Also, I just got a new notice from buick that something could go wrong in the future, so warranty on that item is extended (I forget what it was about, don't anticipate owning it much longer to find out). Gas mileage is poor. Comfort is poor for me - seat to steering wheel to dash controls are awkward. It is loud inside. I loved how this car looked and still do, but that's about it for now.
This car bounces down the road [sharp]* Im sorry Ibought it. Dealers will take you on a road test on pavement that will hide this problem. 05 Camry I sold rode much smother. YOU WILL GET A HEADACHE . North Canton Chevy Dealer says Never heard of a problem.Pay 250.00 doc fee or take bus. elswhere. Would not hold car till I could get to the bank. Stay away from Whipple Av. N. Canton oh.
Six-speed automatic with console shifter with shifter-mounted button
Transmission and axle ratios (x:1)
Snarly, strong-pulling V6 could get front wheelspin with traction control off. Slow-shifting transmission, but smooth. Definitely not close-ratio gearing. Manual mode is via rocker switch on console lever. Quickest time came using manual mode, as it shifted quicker and could bring revs closer to 7,000-rpm limiter, rather than Drive's 6,500. Blips throttle on downshifts. Will hold gears at limiter.
Oddly quiet ABS. Long travel, slightly mushy pedal. Plenty of nosedive. Pulled to the right and had some rear tire lockup. First stop was 117 feet. Shortest was the sixth and final stop at 116 feet. Third stop was longest at 123 feet.
"Skid pad: The LaCrosse actually worked better in ESC-on mode because the stability control's brake application helped curb understeer. Soft suspension means lots of lean.
