About Buick LaCrosse

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. Available in either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), highlights for the all-new LaCrosse include the sleek new look, tastefully designed and well-appointed cabin, and an impressive list of available infotainment, convenience and safety technologies. And while the new model is also easier to drive and lighter on its feet, it’s just as remarkably quiet, comfortable and roomy as we want a Buick to be.

What's new for 2012?
2012 Buick LaCrosse

The biggest change in the 2012 LaCrosse is standard eAssist, which marries an 11 Kw (15-hp) electric motor to a 182-hp 2.4-liter Ecotec four driving a six-speed automatic transmission. It's good for a 20-percent improvement in EPA highway fuel economy and an impressive 32-percent boost in city economy over the 2011 four-cylinder LaCrosse. If you prefer horsepower to hybrid power, a lighter and more powerful (than last year) 303-hp 3.6-liter V6 is a no-cost option.

"Surprisingly worse than my 2011 Lacrosse. Noisy engine, spongy handling, visability improved which was major flaw in past. Wouldn't consider it after a test drive. Made me appreciate my old LaCrosse."

"Best thing about this car is the gas mileage is pretty good for a car this size. And it is quiet. After that, I don't have much good to say starting with the ride. I have a 2017 premium in crimson red with the 20" wheels and tires. What a mistake. I drove the 18" version prior to getting mine and it was a floater. This one, equipped with RE97s rode like a go kart. And in sport mode it feels like you have no suspension at all. Now true, I'm a sporting sort of guy for an old geezer, but this car rides harder than a Vette or Z/28 that I've owned and its not in the same universe as my Pontiac G8 GT. At 500 miles I replaced the tires (at my expense) with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 and that helped a little. It still doesn't cure the issue that the suspension tuning is way off of the charts. It's never still, never smooth. In the first 1/2" or so of suspension travel it needs more compliance to soak a little more of small road disturbances. Over big road undulations it's fine. Another major issue is the steering in that it's way too light and quick just off of center which makes the car darty. Constant small steering corrections are required to keep this car in your lane. If you want a car that makes you look like an old geezer weaving all over the rode driving it, then this is it. And this time it won't be the geezer's fault. True, big wheels, but still a 40 series tire just like the 19s" on my G8. Why can the G8 ride light-years better on far more aggressive tires (RE-11s)? Brakes are great and the pedal feel is one of the best I've ever driven with great bite and it's pressure sensitive and not travel sensitive. Handling when driven very aggressively is also pretty good for this type of car. Probably would make a decent autocross car as that's how sharp the turn in is. However, that's not what one wants 100% of the time. Be nice to be able to drive straight down the road. How Buick ever put this out in the captured test fleet on the streets of Detroit and didn't notice all of this is beyond me. Other than the above, no complaints."

Pros: "Quiet, Comfortable ride. Outstanding Technology."

Cons: "Expensive when fully loaded."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I own the redesigned 2017 Buick LaCrosse, Premium/AWD. Previously I drove the 2010 LaCrosse, purchased new and redesigned that year. My satisfaction with the previous generation was outstanding, delivering exceptional service and reaching nearly 80K miles at trade-in. The NEW generation LaCrosse for 2017 undoubtedly sets a higher benchmark for Domestic Luxury Sedans! In addition to its superior comfort and quietness while in motion, this model simply excels in technology and efficiency. Loaded with every safety feature imaginable, this Buick also includes the most advanced 3.6l VVT 310hp V-6 engine, that includes Auto Cylinder-Deactivation and Auto Start-Stop technology. These features collectively assure impressive gas mileage without compromising on rapid acceleration. The latest available, 8-speed auto transmission, is operated by a very intuitive, shift-by-wire control knob. Gear transitions are flawless at speed. Being completely fair & honest with such low mileage currently, I choose not to rate my experience in reliability. However, if this model meets or exceeds my experience with the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, I will surely give it a 10/10 as well. I have no doubts on the future of this car. Every Professional review that Ive researched, suggests that this Buick will indeed give most comparable Foreign Luxury Sedans a serious run for their money!"
