Editor's Overview

Totally redesigned for 2017, Buick’s large sedan is now a significantly more appealing alternative to a variety of large sedans ranging from GM’s own Chevrolet Impala to the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES cousins. Highlights include the sleek new look, its tastefully designed and well-appointed cabin, and an impressive list of available infotainment, convenience and safety technologies.

2018 Buick lacrosse handles well & has many safety and comfort features.

I appreciate the safety features of my 2017 Buick lacrosse, especially variable speed cruise control, lane assist, rear traffic detection and blind spot detection. I am pleased with the fuel efficiency of this full size vehicle and appreciate the "auto off" feature where the engine shuts down for a short period when the vehicle is stopped.

Buick lacrosse: wonderful all around.

The only thing that bothered me is when I am in construction and the lane guider tries to guide me into a non existent lane. Other than that, it is a very smooth ride, comfortable and compatible to all my electronics. I would like a CD player though because it does not have one which is slightly annoying.

- Ryan H

Only promises, very little results.

Had to have new tires put on my new vehicle. Had to have passenger seat replaced in my new vehicle. Had car in “numerous” times to fix driver’s side door. Still waiting on them to contact me with the solution. I cannot find a service manager to do what they say they will do.
