2008 Buick LaCrosse
There are 7 user reviews for the Super trim shown below
- Sharp looking and plenty of power
- Front end shakes
Purchased As New
I have had nothing but trouble with my LaCrosse Super. I purchased it new in June 2008 and have had tire issues, alignment, starter, broken strut, paint peeling, electrical issues, new battery, driver door hinge replaced, fuel solenoid, and other issues multiple times back to the dealer. GM has fixed many of the issues even after the warranty ran out due to miles but have washed their hands of it now saying its your problem. I have taken great care of this car and it looks new inside, even the trunk is perfect. Thanks GM for this lemon, I hope the wheels don't fall off before I can trade it....read morehide

- COMFORTABLE! Poised, mannerly, great ride compromise, This is Buick?!
- Access weird but with practice just fine.
I can't believe this is Buick! THIS IS NOT GRANDPA'S BUICK! It's quiet, corners very nicely, rides very well and goes like a S.O.B. without ANY ado. It is, simply put, the finest balance of comfort, convenience, performance, good looks and VALUE I have ever come across in all of my years.
I am a mere 45 years old and, despite Buick's history of being a pokey, stodgy underperformer - I LOVE THIS CAR!
Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone considering a luxury car with SNOT. Will solidly outperform Maxima, Camry V6, Acura TL (yes, even Type S) Lexus IS - I got mine for 29K loaded. WHAT A DEAL with a 100,000 mile warranty. OUTSTANDING VALUE....read morehide

- QUIET interior, comfort, handling, power
- None noted
Have had for 2 weeks and am totally pleased. Traded an '04 Grand Prix GTP
Comfort is excellent, including the back seat. Displacement on demand is totally transparent. This car really handles, yet the ride over rough roads is excellent. Great braking system, too. Fit and finish are perfect as is the paint. Sound system with 6 CD changer and XM radio are as good as I've heard. Great in snow. Came with 18" Michelon Pilots. Seat inserts look great and should be cooler in summer than solid leather.
Have not checked mileage to date.
Car only weighs 150 lbs more than a Saturn Aura XR but seems much bigger inside.
Infrared back-up assist is neat as is the remote start.
With all the chrome accents and chrome wheels, black car looks stunning. At least when it's clean.
Engine has a great exhaust note outside of the car and gobs of power.
I highly recommend this car....read morehide

- sporty handles very well excellent climate control great brake system excellant get up and go
- dont buy it for gas miliage
have drove pickup trucks and SUVs for the last 30 years and it is time to buy a midsize luxury car.After much research I found that the Lacross gave me a whole lot more for my money then any other american car out there.Sunroof leatherseats heated great trim package and I think the looks compare to any other foreign or domestic car out there. The first weekend trip my wife and I went got many complements on my new Buick. Iam very proud to own and buy american!...read morehide

- Drives and handles great, love the leather dreamweave seats, quiet and tight, like the sun roof also
- needs memory seats as an option and more room in door pockets
I love this car!!!! I have had mine for about 3 weeks; it drives like a dream and is stunning to look at. This car is an excellent value for a luxury car and that's exactly what it is. Buick and General Motors need to be promoting this vehicle more. I like having On-Star and XM Satellite radio (which I will definitely keep). I'm not as concerned with gas mileage as I am with comfort and safety. This car can span generations with its good looks and handling. It has the sporty feel I loved in my Regal and Intrigue. I'm beginning to get the hang of the remote starting. It takes some practice....read morehide

The "Mom from Indiana" has to be lying. The '08 LaX Super hasn't even been built yet. The first ones won't be available until early Aug. Unless she happens to own one of the prototypes shown at the New York Auto Show back in March.

- This automobile has great acceleration for merging on the highway. It is quieter than prior model
- City mileage is really, really lousy. Highway is better.
I purchased this auto after having a Buick Le Sabre with all of the bells and whistles. This car has been a great disappointment. While merging is great, it lacks many other necessities. It handles very poorly in the wind (actually will blow into another lane quite easily) and also poorly in the rain. Road noises are very loud when driving through puddles. It is difficult to get a comfortable sit in the seats and the lumbar supports are really ineffective in their placement. Pockets in the door are way too small to store anything such as an umbrella. About the only thing that fits in the door pocket is a state map. Mileage is another disappointment. It gets between 17 and 18 miles per gallon in the city. It was rated 20 in the city. I called dealer and had them check out the vehicle and they said everything was in order. I drive the same places that I drove the Le Sabre and it routinely got 24 to 25 miles to the gallon. This is a smaller car!! Windshield noise is improved and are much quieter but I would rather have better mileage. I would not purchase another Buick model after this experience....read morehide
