Pros: Leather Interior
Cons: am radio reception
Advice: Pick your color and your interior style. I chose the bucket seats with the shift on the floor, not the column. Looks very classy.I love this car. I have been buying trucks and suv's for the past 6 years. My wife had a regal in high school and a riviera in college, so when I decided I wanted a car, I chose Buick. After test driving the LaCrosse, I was hooked. I bought the black on black with sunroof and cd changer. Amazing quiet and comfort, and plenty of storage for luggage and golf clubs. FANTASTIC! I highly recommend. Also, better mileage than former trucks or suv's.
Pros: quiet and comfort
Cons: Radio controls on the steering wheel
Advice: The CXL is definitely nice.Smooth ride - comparable to a Cadillac (firm, yet comfortable). Brakes are on the money - not at all like the Monte Carlo I traded. Very responsive steering.
Cons: OEM tires
Advice: Just test one and you will see!It was a sure shot, I had Buick Regal 91' and had no doubts about my new car. Quality, price, ride, comfort, quietness, controls, better styling than most family very boring and bland bestsellers especially Japanese ones.
Pros: Exterior Styling
Cons: Generic Center Console
Advice: Get CXS trim levelOverall a step up from the Century/Regal. A little underpowered and the interior could use a little work, especially the bland center console, but a good car
Pros: Quiet comfort
Cons: Awkward placing of radio and climate controls
Advice: BuyThe car is very comfortable and handles well. There some small annoyances that Buick could easily have corrected. I can't do climate change or CD or radio adjustment without taking my eyes off the road. Sometimes I just stop driving to do it. I have the 'six' passenger version, but the middle front passenger??? The instrument cluster is made to look 'sporty' but that just makes it harder to see some gauges. There is a large RPM display that is completely useless with automatic transmission, just there to look like a Porsche.
Cons: No sunroof
Advice: You will enjoy the ride.It's luxurious and sporty. Quiet ride and great sound system. Love it!
Cons: Nothing So Far
Advice: A comfortable ride at a reasonable priceComfortable and responsive. A little too much driver / passenger side window wind noise at speeds 50 MPH and over.
