I bought a 2005 LaCrosse with 61,000 miles in late 2009. It's at 115,000 miles now. The trouble free miles, great gas mileage, features, and comfort make this a great car! Mileage - over 30 mpg at sustained 65 mph, a bit less at 70 on the interestates, and over 23 city driving. Features - the REMOTE START to preheat the car on snow days and bitter cold days when I'm on the road is fantastic! As I'm finishing breakfast in the hotel, I can point/start, and walk out to a pre-heated car a few minutes later! Comfort - I drive a lot of miles in my consulting practice, and I am so much fresher, more comfortable, less tired, etc., after a long early morning trip, or a late night return. I have leather seats - they still look like new, and a sunroof - don't use that much but it's nice on balmy nights - nice way to break up a long drive. The numerous quiet features like 3 laminate glass make this an amazingly quiet car, too. Handling - with new Michelins this car eats up mountain roads - fun to drive. The engine has far more power than this car needs, but that's sort of fun at times, too, and the car eats up long, steep grades in the mountains like Fancy Gap on I-77, Old Fort to Black Mountain on I-40, Blue Ridge front ranges on I-26 and US 25, etc. It carries a surprising load of associates and luggage, too, and I hear no complaints from back seat riders (some of whom are not small people!). If you want a great road car, the Buick LaCrosse has everything I wanted, and delivers at a moderate initial cost, and very low operating expense. I'm planning to run it to over 175,000 miles, maybe more.
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.
I originally became interested in the Buick LaCrosse after renting one on a business trip. After doing a through online review and an exhaustive search for the exact model and features I wanted I purchased my LaCrosse and I completely satisfied with the car. It is comfortable to drive and it handles superbly. Let's not forget that it is very fuel efficient considering the fact that it has all the power and acceleration I need and quite frankly more than I expected. I have owned many nice cars over the years and so far my LaCrosse has performed beyond my expectations. This is certainly not my father's Buick. Great car that's really fun to drive.
