I bought a 2008 Lacrosse CX in gold with 24,500 miles on it. I've had it 3 months and have put 3,700 miles on it. It has been perfect! I have kids and it gives me room for their stuff. It is also big enough to where I feel we are safe.It's almost new with so few miles. I did ALOT of research before buying a newer used car. I was driving a parent's Buick before that was given to me. It was 14 years old and going strong with 128,000 miles until someone totalled it. I had it for 11 years. I never thought about Buicks before that. I was a Chevy gal. The Lacrosse is alot like a Impala but slightly smaller and better handling(I drove a rental for a month). I don't understand why more people in my age group don't consider Buicks. They are very reliable and safe. I think my Lacrosse is so pretty too. The price was unbelievably good compared to other cars in that size. It was a perfect fit for us.
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.
With everyone buying SUVs you can get a great deal on sedans at this time. The Lacrosse is a great semi-premium sedan. It is a comfortable car. The tech works well and is easy to use. Mine has 4 wheel drive and all versions have cylinder shut down. Both features work seamlessly. The trunk is large enough to carry a folding table without even folding the rear seats. Performance is excellent including reasonable fuel mileage. I'd highly recommend this car, especially as a great alternative to everyone else's SUV.
