I love my Lacrosse

This car by far exceeds my expectations. I purchased it used earlier this year (just before gas prices spiked). Among the features I like most are the great gas mileage (25-35 mpg) I get from my hybrid model Lacrosse, and the quick “get-up-and-go”.


Great Car - should not have stopped making it!!

The car is equal to if not better than the Cadillacs I have owned. The V6 is very peppy and yet gets great gas mileage on regular gas. I would gladly buy another but GM no longer makes it - dumb decision if you ask me.


Love This Car

This vehicle is fantastic. I bought it used in October of 2019 and I'm glad I did. Highly recommend it - fun to drive, easy on gas, lots of great features and CarPlay integration, etc.
