Pros

The Lacrosse is a good sized vehicle for the price. It has the features and comfort that gives the driver and passengers the feeling of a confident ride.

Cons

Rear wheel drive, but gets through sloppy roads very well. Probably even better with a more aggressive tire though.

Great Value. — Overall the Lacrosse is an outstanding vehicle with the strong V-6 3800 engine that has existed as a staple for Buick. A nice bonus is the feature to fold down the back seats which allows the ability to carry long items with ease.

New Car For The Old. — I had to drive this boat around after my Sentra got wrecked. Now, I'm not saying this is a bad car, but it's the opposite of my taste. This car completely isolates the driver from the outside world. You get in, you hear nothing. It feels more like a living room than a car interior. Turn the key and try to find the answer to the question, "Is it on?" Step on the gas and it floats eerily forward like some sort of alien hovercraft. You'd think, based on this, that it would be powered by an antimatter core fueled by dilithium crystals, but, actually, it's a V6. Does "V6" excite you? It won't in this car. You can't feel it. There's enough wood on the dash to make you remember how your grandpa smelled like cigarettes, and the blue-green readout reminds me of a microwave oven from 1979. It's a new car built to appeal to old people. A bizzare oxymoron.

2005 Buick Lacrosse "ss X" — Great car with the legendary 3.8 engine. Great performance for an automatic, but the transmission gets a little temporamental sometimes. Cheap to maintain, great on gas (26 mpg pretty much all the time), and great looks to boot! Excellent Investment!

2005 Lacrosse Cxs: Cadillac Cts Without All The High Costs — Absolutely one of the best cars I have ever owned. Would highly recommend the car to anyone looking for power, luxury, comfort, and low maintenance costs. Definitely purchase the CXS model as I did because the power of the 3.6L engine (same as in the Caddy CTS) blows away the standard 3.8L engine found in all other models of the 05 Lacrosse.
