My War Pony with all its qualities lacks horsepower in its tracks .

I Love my vehicle it's got the best comfort and room you need to enjoy your car ride. Especially the gas mileage and low maintenance work you have to do to it. It's got all the qualities you need for a family of Four or less. And it's riding around in comfort. I recently changed out the censor's on all my tires and I can tell the difference in my driving my car all my lights abs sensor reset without me having to take it to a dealership. My only downside to my car is I live in area when it snows it snowstorms for days sometimes week. And a Buick LaCrosse with only front wheel drive is useless. So I'm saying build a buck sedan with all wheel drive and let driving be a luxury even during the hardest weather.

Luxury, driving ease and comfort make lacrosse a favorite!

This is the second lacrosse my husband and I have owned. I love the ease of which it handles, the riding comfort and the luxury extras like leather, heated seats, USB port, and Bluetooth capability. The moon roof is also a nice feature as is the automatic starter. This model is also a hybrid. The only disadvantage is that the front corner post on each side of the windshield is too wide, and it is difficult to see around it when pulling out into traffic or driving around a corner. Other than that it is a wonderful car and we plan to keep purchasing a lacrosse.

2012 Buick lacrosse... My black beauty.

My lacrosse has many features leather, ac / heated seats, privacy screen, v6 engine, DVD player, XM radio. I love that it's a smooth ride. The air conditioner is horrible. Especially in Florida's hot weather. I keep taking it in for service and I am treated unjustly. To change an air cabin filter and connect it to their electronic car issue device. Which states everything is running efficiently. They take my money and send me on my way. The air conditioner continues to blow cold then hot then cold. Mostly hot in 90 degree weather.
