I test drove 8 different makes and models of cars before the Lacrosse. My priorities were low road noise levels and comfortable ride. I convinced myself that I wanted something that got better mileage than my truck and focused on higher mileage cars first. As it turned out each of the other car candidates had drawbacks that disqualified them. The other cars were nice enough but it boiled down to either they were too road noisy or they lacked the required comfort or both. After driving both the the EAssist 4 cylinder and the V6 Lacrosses I elected to buy the V6. The 4 cylinder was fine but my preference was for the additional performance of the 3.6 L V6. The drivers and front passenger seats have a wrap around design that is more sports car than luxury cruiser. All the controls are close at hand, no far reach required. The leather and wood trim are tastefully done. The ventilated leather seats not only look great but are comfortable for that all day drive. No sore glutes after 2 hours. The back seats are very comfortable as well with enough leg room for a 6 ft 6 person sitting behind another similarly big guy up front. Amazing. The fit and finish is in my opinion as nice as a car costing twice as much. The handling is not what I would call 'sporty' and that is not what I am looking for. It is however responsive and fun to drive. There are no unusual tendencies such as over or under steer. The car is one of the quietest rides of any car I have owned. From time to time I have a 350 mile trip. Due to the low road noise I find that 'fatigue' factor is greatly reduced. City driving only produces 16 mpg however the car sees 28-29 mpg on the highway at 70 mph. In my opinion the Lacrosse is the best bang for the buck. Rj

We purchased the Buick Lacross 2013 with V6 engine. Really love this car! Came with all the bells and whistles, which we are STILL trying to figure them all out. Best part: Cobalt blue dash color is way cool Worst part. Low visibility with small windows. Would highly recommend this vehicle

My husband bought this vehicle for me after I told him for over a year that I wanted one, the car has been nothing else but a pure blessing, I have nothing bad to say about it. He got it for me on a lease, but I have already put the paperwork through to buy it. Buick has overdid themselves on this car. I keep finding out more to like about this car. I plan on keeping it for the next ten years at least.

Better than our 07 Lexus ES 350

We have owned a 2003 BMW 535i (bought new) and an 07 Lexus ES 350 (also purchased new). This LaCrosse is a better car than both of those were. No requirement for premium fuel, plenty of power and an outstanding "bang for the buck" factor. The dash is a little too "busy" for our liking but it looks like they remedied most of that for the 2014 model.

Buick La Crosse High Bred

No trunk room for the price of a new car. Key is hard to put in ignition. at night because there is no light to see the key hole. The dimmed lights go off real fast. If you put on lights and don't close it right you have no lights to enter Vechile. No pick up when you drive front wheel drive skids in the snow traction controll is not good. I decided to get the 4 cylinder and because I did the lithium battery is in the trunk I lost trunk space. I get 24.7 miles city driving told it will get 26 or 29 so I'm not happy with the milage or no trunk room and no ignition light but over all it drives nice and it is comfortable. Baught 11/29/12

I love the smooth ride and bluetooth options, pandora app, in-steering wheel controls. overall very smooth, classy, and conservative. I was under the impression that buicks were for older people and now I know why. because of the high comfort level. we are a couple in late thirtys and loving the looks we get in this car.

This is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the best cars I have ever owned. I only drove Oldsmosbile's but now that they are no longer produced I have switched to the Buick. An awesome choice. Save up your pennies and go the extra mile. It's well worth the little bit extra. JO

I recently purchased a 2013 Buick Lacrosse and am so happy I did. I have been driving 4WD vehicles for quite some time but decided it was time to give them up and find something that was easier on the pocketbook as far as fuel. It is a beautiful car that has every luxury I could imagine. Smooth ride but lots of get up and go. All the comforts of home but in a car!

Now have 10K miles on vehicle. 62 years old, owned many new vehs. First one I have not had some sort of buyers remorse. Love the car. Drive four hours and feel rested. Only complaint I have is wide windshield pillars and back views somewhat limit vision. Great car. Highly recommend. Compares to higher priced luxury cars in comfort and handling. Love to drive in mountains.
