Great! This has been the best car I have ever owned.

2011 Buick LaCrosse CX

There is currently no outstanding vehicle problems. The car, prior to my ownership, was taken care of very well. The performance of the car has been great. I have no issues with how it running, and for the past 6 months has been quite reliable. My favorite is the comfort. There is huge cabin space and we were recently able to travel 1,000 miles for vacation very comfortably. My favorite features are the interface for me to play music, but the auxiliary cord outlet is in the middle console armrest. It is not convenient to get to and when using an auxiliary cord, prevents me from closing the console all the way.

It is a red lacrosse. Comfy and performs the needs necessary for everyday life

2011 Buick LaCrosse CX

The car is super comfortable. I have never had any major repairs on it. I bought it 2 years ago with 5k miles on it. Currently it was 48k miles on it. Runs amazing. Great sound. Safe. Reliable. It's American made so it is cheaper than others to get work done on it. As long as you keep up with your oil changes as recommended it will be kept running well

Looking for a safe, reliable and good looking car? Buy this one!

2011 Buick LaCrosse CX

This thing is a boat in a great way! I have never felt more safe, cool and comfortable in any of my vehicles! The rear camera is a great help. Parallel parking is a breeze. Sirius radio capability is also a plus. The sound system in this car is legit! . The drive is quiet and quick.
