Ambient lighting, reliable and cheap to maintain.

2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS

Engine had to be replaced at 105000 miles which was super unfortunate. Other than that I have never had any major issues and maintenance has always been cheap, good on oil. Very comfortable, love the ambiance lighting. V6 is a bit slower than you would expect but pretty sure that's due more to the overall large size of the car.

Great car but repairs can be costly

2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS

We love our Buick lacrosse. All of the features are great such as heated seats, back up camera, back window shade, push button start. Only bad thing so far is the fact that the headlight replacement is very complicated. It requires removing whole front panel. Cost estimate is $500.

My car problems and conditions

2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS

I haven't really had any problems with my vehicle except the normal such as brakes, tires, oil changes and stuff like that. Other than that I love my car. It drives smooth the leather is still in great condition the body of the car have a few scratches but still looks great

A premium audio system with a DVD player and hard drive

2011 Buick LaCrosse CXS

I really love of the body style of this car. This car has a smooth ride, lots of legroom and great audio system. The maintenance cost is fairly reasonable. I have had some electrical glitches but not often. Overall this car is a great family car for traveling.
