I have a BMW and traded in a Chrysler 300C and this car is the most comfortable driving car I have owned in a long time. I test drove every luxury car in the price range and although I liked the Lexus ES350 and teh Caddy, I liked the Buick the best.

My Luxury Office on Wheels

by from Chicago West Suburbs on December 8, 2011

I was set on buying a used Lexus 460 for the quiet cabin and hand free features. I found the LaCrosse as a demo with 4000 miles for about the same price as a 3-4 year old 460 with 40,000. This is my ...
I was set on buying a used Lexus 460 for the quiet cabin and hand free features. I found the LaCrosse as a demo with 4000 miles for about the same price as a 3-4 year old 460 with 40,000. This is my first GM car and I am very satisfied so far. The hands free features for the phone and NAV work like on star trek (about time). The voice recognition is unbelieveable, and the car is SILENT. Perfect for my all my sales time on the road. The on board HDD works perfectly with my CDs, Ipod and audio books from Audible. Andalows you to pause live radio/XM when you answer a call. The performance and exterior styling are not quite on par with 460, but the interior is about 90% there. Fit, finish and feel are excellent. Blue LED highlighting all over the interior, rear sun shade, and the dash looks like an aircraft cockpit. I have the luxury version, but with sport suspension and low profile tires and this car handles just as good as my old Acrua TL. Maybe even a little flatter cornering. I have only had this car for a few months, but so far it is better than I expected. I love the techy features, and interior styling. And I have to add it feels pretty good driving up to my union construction sites in a Detroit Vehicle. If you are looking for luxury imports, check this car out. You may be pleasantly surprised.

I've most recently driven Lexus 350 and Acura TL. When shopping, drove Lexus, Infiniti, Acura, BMW, Mercedes. Ignoring the vast difference in price, this car is significantly better in almost every aspect. I strongly recommend a test...don't be duped by the "brand" cache and pay way too much.

Have owned many many cars over the years, the technology, comfort styling and value of the Lacrosse far surpasses any that I have owned. I compared the Lincoln MKZ, Cadillac CTS, Lexus ES and Nissan Maxima. For what I ended up spending on the Lacrosse I am very happy with my decision.My favorite feature is the ice blue ambient lighting i the interior, very calming, reminds me of my 1983 Park Avenue, and come to think of it that was my favorite car until now.

Best Car I have Owned!

I have the CXS with navigation. This is a great car! I looked at several competitors including Tauras, Avalon, and Lexus 350 and this car beats them all. Extremely comfortable, quiet, luxurious! The Harmon-Kardon sound system is great. The user interface with navigation and audio systems is easy to use. Only a couple of minor recommendations are to add interior releases for trunk and fuel door.

Best Vehicle I've Ever Owned

I own the Buick LaCrosse for three months now. It is the most reliable car I've ever owned, it has absolutely no false in it. Every time someone comes in the vehicle and he have never been inside a Buick LaCrosse before, he says things like "O-M-G Spaceship." or "I just fell in love". The Buick LaCroose is definitely the best vehicle I've ever owned in all its aspects. From the stunning look of the exterior, to the freezing blue and special feeling when you are inside it. Driving the Buick LaCrosse is even better than just sitting inside it. the first "kick" I did with the vehicle felt like I am going to lift up and fly like im in some kind of a private jet. The V6 (3.6) engine lets you feel like a king - like nothing else. I absolutely recommend to add features such as included Sunroof, GPS navigation system, Multimedia system, and the Reverse camera (which is very efficient, I always use it and it really is helpful, especially when you need to see something that's in the "dead era" of the mirrors). The 2011 Buick LaCrosse will let you feel like a king. It is really worth the money, and even more.

Fit and finish are superb. Excellent fuel economy for a full-size vehicle. Quiet and comfortable ride without being "floaty". I bought a new 2011 LaCrosse CX and love it. The 4-cyl engine returns 30mpg on the highway and the car is very quiet and composed over all types of surfaces. Buick is really building quality vehicles today.

I've owned the Lacrosse now for about 4 weeks. I love it. It's classy and comfortable. This is only my second front wheel drive vehicle and I still prefer rear wheel, I don't like the steering going around corners. I can't speak highly enough about the interior lighting. It's gorgous! Nice quiet ride, you can even ride with the window down and you don't get blown out by the wind. Cons: I agree with other reviews, they need to mount the 12V adapter somewhere on the dash instead of in the console. The "push to start" should be a standard option, nobody wants to handle keys anymore. HUD for safety should also be standard. Also,Buick could standardize on black carpet, the lighter colors show to much. A "Rear" wheel drive, V8 would also be a preference of mine, even living in Minnesota.

This car is by-far the best vehicle I have ever owned. Now that I own a 2011 CXS, I will never go back to Lexus or Acura. The competitors just don't match the new Buick nameplate. This vehicles features are phenomenal. The navigation system is simply the easiest to use, just love it. Absolutely love the heated and cooled seats, each level is perfect for whatever mood you happen to be in. The dual seat DVD players are amazing with children, really keeps them busy on long trips. And for me the heated steering-wheel is extremely relaxing! Also the rear sun shade is just perfect. My other favorite feature is the auto oppening trunk,(Yet another great feature with kids!). Overall this car is just amazing. Really do suggest test driving one today!

I bought a 2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS in August and I cannot say enough good things about it. The only drawback is the console, but that is something I can live with as the rest of the car more than makes up for that one short-coming. I have a back injury. I drove just about every Chevrolet and Ford they had, and because of the headrest in those vehicles, it caused my neck to be at such an awkward angle that my neck hurt and they didn't work out. My Buick doesn't have that issue. The seats are amazing, it handles like a dream and if you are a horsepower buff such as myself, I highly recommend driving one!!
