The LaCrosse is a sophisticated and thoroughly modern sedan. Quiet, roomy and luxurious, it offers responsive handling and a steady ride, qualities not normally associated with past Buicks. However, the cockpit is a bit narrow, the dashboard is busy, and styling restricts visibility and access.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Owner Satisfaction with:

    Driving Experience

    Includes acceleration and handling

    What Owners Say

    "Both are excellent for driving."

    NATHAN T., FL (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "The acceleration and shifting between gears leaves something to be desired. In the 50 to 60 MPH range the transmission shifts up and down more than I prefer."

    JAMES W., PA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "the only negative factor is the visibility, primarily to the rear, but to the front somewhat also. CR had mentioned this in their report."

    IRA L., CA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "The 2.4 liter engine provides only adequate power but does not get high mileage."

    Anonymous, FL (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "3.0 L V-6 engine that runs on regular gas coupled with smooth 6-speed transmission."

    T K., AL (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "It accelerates very well and handles very well. Only issue is with blind spots."

    Suzanne H., MI (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "soft ride"

    Anonymous, MI (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Very good acceleration when getting on the highway and safely merging with traffic."

    Richard D., PA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Good acceleration with great handling. Not the best mileage."

    Anonymous, OH (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Driving the Buick is fine until I have to back up. The blind spots/visibility is AWFUL. I only have a back-up system that will beep if I get too close to an object. But trying to back-up (into a parking space) only using the mirrors is unacceptable. I want to be able to look out the rear window. There are also blind spots in the front of the vehicle. The roof supports on either side of the windshield can easily block the view of another vehicle."

    Janet C., GA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "The Buick is not very responsive to accelerator input during standing start or passing situations. Seems to lag and takes much too long to get up to the RPM power curve. Handling is just average or slightly below average."

    Anonymous, OH (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Worst car I have ever driven for blind spots. Corner post in front windshield blocks a massive area"

    Anonymous, ON (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Good acceleration and holds the road"

    Howard S., WI (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Excellent handling"

    Aaron B., NY (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Acceleration is fairly responsive, steering is very good, but as already stated mileage is horrible since I bought the car in 2010 and not what was advertised."

    Charles C., MA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Plenty of power. Good acceleration an handling."

    Ira L., CA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "GREAT ACCELERATION WHEN NEEDED FOR MMERGING ON HIEGHWAYS, HOLDS THE ROAD REALLY WELL HANDLES INCLEMENT WEATHER WELL"

    "Noise level (Very Quiet while driving"

    Anonymous, TX (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Ride"

    T M., WY (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "While the car is comfortable, my only complaint is how difficult it is to see out of all the windows as I drive. The section between front and back seats takes up so much room (where the doors open) that I always have to be extremely careful backing up. I just can’t see very well. Others who have driven my car agree."

    Anonymous, NV (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "the most uncomfortable car we have ever owned. Very hard to get in and out due to low clearance getting in and out of door opening. Noisy ride."

    Anonymous, ON (2010 Buick LaCrosse)

    "Ok comfort for city trips, but not very comfortable for long trips. I do like the ventilated seats though."

    Anonymous, CA (2010 Buick LaCrosse)
