Buick LaCrosse ' a comfortable ride.

2012 Buick LaCrosse Leather

My car is 7 years old and it has never had any repairs. It runs well, and is quite comfortable. I have back problems and this is important for me. The leather seats are quite comfortable. I have XM radio, necessary for the GPS system. I am directionally deficient and love the GPS. I know nothing about mechanics, but I have no problems.

Beautiful cherry red 2012 Buick lacrosse with awesome black leather seating.

2012 Buick LaCrosse Leather

Awesome car since 2012. Never any issues with it. Runs real quiet. Beautiful black leather trim. Awesome cherry outside. No rust. Keep it clean. It is a car I would trust for taking a long trip vacation. Excellent dashboard panel. Lights go on automatically when it gets dark enough. Windshield wipers too.

Stylish and roomy and very worth the money

2012 Buick LaCrosse Leather

I bought the car used but it has a great speed performance. I be owned Buick's for 20 years and unfortunately they do have issues with water pumps and gas caps . I've had to just replace my coolant container cause it was a flaw in Buick. I still would recommend it to me it's a great car

Buick lacrosse, watch for blind spots

2012 Buick LaCrosse Leather

Major blind spots from the windshield trim. Difficult to judge at 4 way stops. It is a comfortable ride. The drivers side door latch has become loose. Tires have also been a problem, losing air. Good trunk space for a sedan. Difficult to latch in car seats in the back seat.

- Mackenzie K

Luxurious quiet ride. So smooth.

2012 Buick LaCrosse Leather

This car has been so amazing. It's stuck a smooth ride. So quiet when driving. We only had one problem one time which was the ball bearings inside the rims came loose on one side of the car, but it was an easy fix. Other than that it has been amazing. We love it!
