  1. MPGs improving?

    This question goes out to those of you who've had your LaCrosses for a while now and I'm wondering if your fuel milage has improved since you got it. Any significant increase once your car got broke in and if so about when did that happen? Coming June 1st the car will be 1 year old but I only...
  2. Interesting car 'apps' or features being introduced

    An interesting article on new features being added to new cars. Click.
  3. Excellent dealership serice

    Just got back from the dealership for my second oil change and I'm really impressed with the service. Besides the usual items they even vacuumed out the air cleaner box, power washed the oil dribbles off the under carriage and wiped off any finger prints on the hood. Everyone was polite, called...
  4. Do you have a spare tire?

    I was just reading an article where more than 10% of new cars don't come with a jack and spare - LaCrosse included. Instead some manufactures are opting to replace the spare with a tire sealant and compressor kit. What came with your new LaCrosse?
  5. E-assist naked:

    Perhaps you've seen this but if not here's a good explanation[/url] on the Lacrosse e-assist. Clicky
  6. Merry Christmas Everyone

    I hope everyone here has a good holiday and safe travels whether it be in your Lacrosse or otherwise. Talk to you guys next week. :) Edited to add: Oh and if you get a new Lacrosse as a stocking stuffer post some pics. (and of the guy who donated the stocking too. :D)
  7. What color is your LaCrosse?

    Just for grins. I know this poll doesn't include past colours but I don't have that information.
  8. Lacrosse eAssist technical explanation.

    For those interested in a more in-depth technical explanation of how the eAssist system works please click here.
  9. Do you have a trunk pass through?

    Just curious who has the trunk pass through. I've noticed several marketing photos showing trunk pass throughs but my 2011 doesn't have it. Is the omission a Canadian thing?
  10. Bulb replacement with LED

    So our new Lacrosses have LED tail/brake lamps but no LED backup, signal, and licence plate lamps. Anyone here change theirs out to LEDs?
  11. 2012 nav disc available

    So I took a peek at GMs nav disc site and noticed the new "2012 Global A High Nav Disc" is now available. Anyone order a disc from these guys before (or even this disc for that matter)? I sent them a note asking what's in the disc so I'll let you know what their reply is.
  12. Ambient lighting - photos

    For those contemplating a new LaCrosse I thought I'd put up couple of pics of the interior lighting. The photos were taken with a 180 fish-eye lens so there's some distortion. In the first photo if you could see the car you'd see the front of the sunroof on top, the centre arm rest at the...
  13. adding pictures

    Got a question about adding pictures to a post. I know how attachments are uploaded, but how are larger images placed in a post where you don't have to click on the attachment?
  14. Voice commands via BT to cell phone?

    Reading the owners manual it appears one should be able to give voice commands to your bluetooth connected cell phone in much the same way you can to the car's OnStar phone. I have an iPhone 4 so perhaps that feature is not available but I'm wondering if any phones have that capability. Has...
  15. OnStar Remote Link updated for nav

    I see OnStar has updated their Remote Link app with a Nav button to download directions from your phone to your car's turn-by-turn or the in-dash nav system. Through your phone you can now enter a place or address into the app's search field and send the resulting search to your car. You can...
  16. RSE headphones & remote storage?

    I'm currently storing the headphones and remote in the front seat backs but don't really like them there and my wife is using the glove box for her neck pillow. Anyone come up with any clever storage solutions?
  17. Anyone familiar with navigation update discs?

    So for grins I took a visit to the GM Nav Disc Center and did a search for a map update. After typing in my vehicle the search results returned a couple of options. One is 2011 SRX/Lacrosse/Terrain/Equinox/Regal/Volt/Cruze with a part no. and price. Seems fairly self explanatory. The other...
  18. What type of HHD?

    Anyone know if the hdd is a flash memory solid state device or a conventional spinning platter type?
  19. e assist; marketing hype or real world savings

    While the eAssist looks interesting I'm wondering if the real world savings will benefit anyones pocket book. While the reduced fuel consumption is attractive, my fears are more long term as in how much is the lithium battery going to cost when it comes time to replace it. Plus there is all the...
  20. WeatherTech DigitalFit?

    I've been looking for a good fitting floor mat that doesn't have gaps for water to leak from the edge onto the carpet next to the sill. The DigitalFits seem to be what I'm looking for. Anyone here purchase the DigitalFit mats and if so do they fit a well as advertised to protect the carpet?
