  1. 2012 - The chrome trim around my cup holder area is rippling

    Hey everyone, The chrome trim around my cup holder area began rippling a year or so ago. It's a thin layer which seems destined to break loose and become ugly at some point. It's happening pretty much around the entire chrome perimeter. When I run my finger over top of it, it makes a crinkling...
  2. LaCrosse out does others I have tested.

    I was convinced we would be buying a Regal when car shopping in late 2011. I spent a lot of time researching it but it's feature list was sparse when compared to the Lacrosse. I guess I mentioned one too many times about how the Lacrosse had this or that feature that the Regal lacked, and so my...

  6. Departure Prep

    In a few days we leave for a 2-3 week road trip out to Colorado. The rental worked so well last time we're trying it again. My LaCrosse lives outside and will be sitting while we're gone baking in the sun. Any ideas for how best to leave her? How much gas to leave in tank? Air in tires? Put up...

  8. Encore Lease Deal

    Admittedly, I really don't know how leases work but I was browsing the Buick site and noticed their current offering on the Encore... I've always thought it's shady how they advertise a monthly figure but include the down payment amount of their choosing. Why not just call it $10/month (with...
  9. What do you think it's costs to operate a LaCrosse?

    My wife and I like really enjoy road trips. It takes longer to get places but I’m not a huge fan of the public so I get peace and quiet and lots of flexibility when driving. I’m a Marriott Platinum member so finding nice hotels w/ good breakfasts and upgraded rooms is easy for me...

  12. Travel Accessories

    Got any favorite travel widgets? I just tried this CD mounted holder on a little overnight weekend trip and really liked it. It does visually block a couple buttons but sits far enough away from the dash that you can still reach them easy enough. I used it to hold the wife’s iPhone on...
  13. Cargo Organizer

    I'm interested in a Cargo Organizer for the LaCrosse but there isn't one listed as an accessory. So I've posted these part numbers on both the Verano & Enclave forums in hopes of getting some dimensions. I called my dealer's parts man but he doesn't have any in stock, doesn't know the...
  14. Cargo Organizer

    I'm interested in a Cargo Organizer for my LaCrosse but there isn't one listed as an accessory. The Verano and Enclave/Encore list them but do not give dimensions, does anyone have either of these part numbers and can take some measurements? 22854120 $130 Enclave/Encore 22765389 $150 Verano...
