2017 Buick LaCrosse Premium 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

We just bought a 2017 La Crosse Premium which is loaded. We drove it 30 miles and the transmission was slipping, did not shut off when stopped, a "Check Transmission" light came on, and the service symbol came on and stayed on. I would push the gas pedal after the stop lighted changed, and the car hesitated. Obvious transmission issues. I pulled over and called the dealership. They told me to go home and bring it back in the morning. I told them I was afraid of being stranded. I brought it back and they gave us a loaner.

2017 Buick LaCrosse Essence 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

I don't like how it stops going through a drive-through every time you go also traffic light I don't like that at all I wish you could turn it off . Steering wheel very loose. I liked my 2011 performance better. I just wanted to upgrade but I've only had it a month so now I'm stuck. Not happy at ALL

2017 Buick LaCrosse Essence 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

This car surprised me in a few ways: It gets better gas mileage than our Impala did, it is more comfortable, and a little quieter sometimes. There are three issues worth noting: (1) There is a noise in the driver seat when turning, (2) The manual shift option has caused a problem, but that is because the way I have always driven my cars - with my right hand on the steering wheel, my fingers accidently have touched the paddle shifter, and that causes the engine to race and the car slows down. I have to brake to a stop, and then re-start in order to clear it. I need to learn how the paddle system works, and keep my hands of that section of the steering wheel. The third issue is noise on uneven pavement. Frankly, I expected the car to be much quieter in the cabin. On smooth roads, this car is almost silent, Gas mileage on latest tank, around town, was 22.41 mpg. Back seat room on this car is enormous, and the seats, front and back are very comfortable. The car handles very well, for not being a hot rod or sports car. Special likes: Blind spot warning system, digital odometer, back up camera, and GPS which works very well. OnStar is really nice and it gives me monthly electronic reports on our car. Overall, very good except for the things mentioned, but they are minor and we will learn. One last thing: My wife is partially disabled and she is able to get in and out of the car fairly easily.

Review

It is cheaper to lease a Lexus or Mercedes than this LaCrosse.

Auto-Stop and Adaptive Cruse Control is fantastic.

Review

This car is absolutely fantastic. Yes, it costs way more than a Camry or Accord, which I have also owned. The start-stop does not use the starter and battery. Instead, the computer keeps track of where cylinders are to restart. The car restarted once while I was stopped at a light because the air need to come back on, it did surprise me. However, under normal driving you don't even know that there is start-stop working. The engine is running after you take your foot off of the brake and before you can get to the gas. It does not turn off until the speedometer reads 0.
