Used Luxury For A Decent Price
July 11, 2017
My grandfather had bought the 2007 Buick LaCrosse CXL new, and as I went into high school my family purchased it as my daily commuter. After high school I used it to travel between home in VA to college in ME multiple times in a year, and not once have I had a major problem that has caused me to not be able to drive it. Through driving it so much here are a few things I think are important about the car: While it may be considered an old man's car, there is nothing wrong with living the luxury life in it, as for an older model the BOSE stereo, dual climate control, and heated/leather seats make for a comfortable cross country ride. Even with luxury the car is no slouch, even though the base engine V6 says the 0-60 time is at 8.8 seconds, it feels much faster and the ride handling is very smooth, even when pushing the pedal down all the way and feeling the car shifting into overdrive. If driven carefully you can get 28ish mpg on the highway, but usually the average is around 20 mpg with around town and highway combined. There's plenty of cargo space too, as moving into an apartment by myself only took a few trips. Overall I loved every minute I had with this car, and going on 100,000 miles it is still fully functional with no major problems, and the only reason I'm giving it up to my little brother is so that I can have 4WD in the snow up in Maine.
