I would recommend it because of the drive train. The 3.8 liter is easy to work on yourself and is a good engine. The transmission is also pretty Stought. I have owned several GM's and this drive train if treated right will last a long time. However interior is plastic cheese, peaces break due to being flimsy.
Debated between 2013 Buick Lacrosse and 2013 Lincoln MKS. Chose the Lacrosse because it had less miles. The Lacrosse is less than 1/2 the car of the MKS. Electronics are complicated to use and low in visual quality. Road noise is higher than MKS. Lacrosse is physically more tiring and requires more effort to drive than MKS. It doesn't have the sporty and luxury drive-ability of the MKS. I went from a Lincoln LS to the Lacrosse; can't hardly wait to get back to Lincoln.
Wonder car however the wrong steering wheel on car
2011 Buick LaCrosseGenevia Hill - Greenville, NC02/17/2017
I would recommend this car to a friend and have however; I purchased the car about 4 months ago, before my 30 day grace period was up and multiple trips to 2 different services departments I found out the company put the wrong steering wheel on my car causing the heating element not to work. Well, this was a crazy winter and needless to say I still do no have the right steering wheel...not heat flowing and it is almost Spring.
