Comfort, class, and streamlined style in a midsize luxury car.

My Buick is extremely comfortable, clean, and smooth riding. The downside to the 2006 model is that it is in between feature years as far as Bluetooth or AUX abilities, leaving the user with only a CD player, or having to use a radio transmitter for audio. For people like me that travel a lot and like to listen to their own music/podcasts/audiobooks, this can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. The car's leather features and interior are comfortable and easy to maintain. The only trouble I have had is with the transmission in first gear, but this is only due to previous ownership using the car to pull small travel trailers. The car is still going strong at 120 k+ thousand miles and has minimal rust, despite living in a northern, high salt area. We take good care of it and so far, it has taken great care of us. It has started to burn a bit more oil that it should, but we anticipate getting at least 2 more years of use out of the car with changing the oil every 3k miles.

Buick lacrosse is a really nice 4 door sedan.

The car drives well and is very quiet when running. Many time I have to check the tach to see if I started it is I get distracted after starting the car. It has great foot room up front and not bad in the back even when the front seat is all the way back. It has a large trunk, electric seats and windows and a rear defroster for the back window. Seats are comfortable with decent lower back support. The ac/heat quickly do their thing as required. The only negatives I can think of is the key ring bob stops working easily and after two replacements, I do without it. The other thing is there is only one lock and with the bob not working you have to open the drivers door to unlock the other doors and trunk.

She's a BEAST with the coldest blowing air-conditioner around!

To be honest, I've always thought that Buick had a higher standard for quality until I bought this car 7 years ago. The car has definitely served Its purpose but I feel I've had to fix stuff a lot sooner than I have for previous vehicles. I have kind of a love/hate relationship towards the car. I feel she doesn't owe me anything but then it burns me that I had to replace the transmission in her before she even hit 130,000 miles. Besides that though, she has never left me stranded & if it broke down, she always did it in my driveway. It used to be a pretty good looking car but early on, I lost a hubcap that never got replaced & after that she pretty much looked ghetto.
