Sold! Buick lover for life!

I have owned my Buick for 5 years and it just hit 108,000 moles. The car still runs great. Such a smooth & quiet ride. Starts great, even this winter when the wind chill was -40 my car started right up each and every time. Good gas mileage as well. Only complaint would be that the chrome trim started coming off this last year and is not real cheap to replace. Otherwise, not 1 complaint. I would buy another lacrosse in a second.

It has a 6 disc CD player 9 speakers and a amp and it sounds great.

It is a very nice car great speed with luxury and great gas mileage for a v8 it gets 30 miles to a gallon it has great sound system and the inside is quite and it has a very smooth ride I would buy it again because Buick is a great car. And it has all the luxuries you can think of heated seats and power everything and auto start automatic lights cruise control all controls for stereo and cruise control are on steering wheel.

Very limited maintenance has been needed. Smooth riding and dependable.

My 2008 super lacrosse was purchased in 2007. First owner. The performance is adequate. Very limited maintenance is required. I have had no serious problems. Oil changes are done as needed. Only tires had to be purchased. I take care of my car and the body is in great condition too. I keep getting requests to obtain my car but I will not trade it in. This is the best! No more super lacrosse are around.
