Pros: overall appearance
Cons: color selection
Advice: we drove the honda accord, nissan maxima, and camry. all were 1000's more and the Buick was the better car of the lot.its a great car. quiet, outstanding fuel economy, 30 mpg highway, very tightly constructed, excellent interior, large trunk, ONSTAR, 3800 V-6 was named one of the 20th century's best engines and theres none better.
Pros: the seats make long drives a joy and I'm getting excellent gas mileage city traffic and highway.
Cons: a little low to the ground when going over speed bumps
Advice: drive it. It is a sensible, luxury car.I was going for comfort and safety in this purchase because of all the driving I have to do. I also wanted something mid-sized that can park just about anywhere. I test drove the small Cadillac first and felt I couldn't move in the seat. The Buick seats are like luxury leather furniture.
Pros: Good power
Cons: Sensitive steering on the road
Advice: Go for itI first saw the car in a parking lot and was attracted to it; only had one other GM car before that, a used Caddy STS. I checked out the car at the dealer, was very impressed, it has a reliable proven engine/transmission, and I bought at 2005 new. It has now 10K miles, not any problem and hasn't seen the dealer yet. Very comfortable seats, climate control good, seat warmers great. Good power. I'd recommend it highly and feel its a great competitive vehicle.
Cons: tightness between driver door and seat control
Advice: test drive one best price with all options aroundVery comfortable quiet ride. Lots of comfort options for those long rides through the country. Like the controls of stereo, A/C and cruise on steering wheel. Just need more room between door and drivers seat controls.
Pros: The smooth ride, styling
Cons: seat to close to door to reach power seat controls
Advice: Buy it and you won't be sorryBuick has done their homework, excellent car , comfortable, ride is sweet and quiet, good performance. Great value for a good price, I have road tested the Honda Accord V-6 EX with leather, and the XLE Camray both don't compare to this car, like apples and oranges . The buick is superior over both Honda & Toyota. and cheaper. Great car to own really gets looks and comments.
Pros: The remote start and XM radio
Cons: A sunroof that doesn't retract into the roof
Advice: Buy it!All I can say is I get a lot of complement's on my black on black Buick Lacrosse. I've had people walk up and tell me how they like it. I have the CXL loaded with all the option's (interior & exterior) and we love it! I'm glad I made this purchase.We are also glad that we got more automobile for the money compared to the compatition. I also can say that Buick rank's second in quality only to Lexus! And for LESS money.PLUS I'm getting 30 mpg on the hi-way at 70 mph with the 3800/v-6!I don't think you could get better fuel economy than that.
Pros: The Car
Cons: Waiting to pick it up.
Advice: Buick quality with a definite feeling of quiet and safety. Buy one and ENJOY!Though the LaCrosse CXL will not win in a high-speed Police chase on a curve-laden road, it contains all the attributes of Buick quality. After our test drive, we found the Power Plant and Drive Train to be far better than in most reviews we've seen and read. The Steering and Braking seem to be all that we will need to adjust to. Overall, we're VERY happy with our choice.
