    2005 Buick LaCrosse - CX

    Pros: Quiet

    Cons: Cup holders

    Advice: Buy it

    I love the 2005 LaCrosse. Handles well, extremely comfortable, quiet ride. Cup holders could be improved, but that's the only hitch so far!

    2006 Buick LaCrosse - CXS

    Pros: Remote starter.

    Cons: lack of navigation system

    Advice: It's a great car at a great value

    After owning BMWs for the past 12 years we decided to test drive a few American cars that scored well in reliablity surveys: Cadillac and Buick. The RWD on the Cadillac CTS was a turnoff because of winter weather. We prefer FWD. The LaCrosse was slightly quieter than the Cadillac, and the price was much less than the Mercedes and the BMW. It's a great car and for the money you get a lot.

    2006 Buick LaCrosse - CXL

    Pros: Heated seats and 6 CD player.

    Cons: Steering

    Advice: Take plenty of time driving, on Interstates and city.

    Power Steering has Excessive Resistance. Transmission up shifts to soon, engine labors up hills. Very quiet on the road. Surprised at weight ratio of 63/37. Excellent road lighting.

    2005 Buick LaCrosse - CX

    Pros: automatic engine start and dual heat/air system

    Cons: hard to see backing up

    Advice: GO FOR IT.....!!!

    Owned a 96 Regal,,, loved it, then bought a Malibu... what a mistake. I love the quiet and smooth ride of the Lacrosse. I would love a bit better gas mileage and better cup holders, but overall, I cant complain.. Its a sweet, smooth and quiet car that is great for long and short distance travel.

    2005 Buick LaCrosse - CXL

    Pros: The ride and the quiet interior.

    Cons: For the two driver option

    Advice: Try them all

    Comfort a little more stiff than the typical 'buick softness', gets more comfortable as you rack up the miles. Performance is more than adequate, especially for the gas mileage. A little sloppy cornering, but over all a plus. Quality seems to be typical Buick, but time will tell. Hard to determine with the foreign market, when new. Nice change from the Regal/Century style, with finally a little sport! Rate just under excellant.

    2005 Buick LaCrosse - CXL

    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.

    2005 Buick LaCrosse - CXL

    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.
