• Hint: Use a descriptive title for your new message
    If you're looking for help and want to draw people in who can assist you, use a descriptive subject title when posting your message. In other words, "2008 LaCrosse" isn't going to indicate to anybody that you need help. However, "Need help with my 2008 LaCrosse" will. Be as descriptive as you can. Please use common sense...

  1. Trailer Hitch

    We have a 750 pound mower that occasionally needs to be taken to the dealer for warranty work or service. I found that General Motors lists the Buick LaCrosse with the 3.6L engine as being capable of towing up to 1,000 pounds. Has anyone tried this? I have found several brands of trailer...
  2. Droning Noise

    2010 CXS with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 tires replaced at 55k miles; now at 75k miles. Tire rotation at 70k miles. We suddenly began to notice a droning noise at 75k miles that was independent of the engine RPM or the transmission gear selection. It is solely dependent, it appears, on the...
  3. Fuel Economy Calculations

    Awhile back, there was a thread discussing the accuracy of the average fuel economy readout. Those who were manually calculating the fuel economy between fill ups were finding some discrepancies between the displayed average miles per gallon and their own calculations. A recent article in...
  4. Can the LaCrosse Be Hacked?

    From the Norton Security web site: Can Your Car Be Hacked? Kim Boatman Find Under: Prevention You might be behind the wheel, but increasingly, computers control your car’s every function. Microprocessors direct braking, acceleration and even the horn these days. “Because they are hidden...
  5. Undocumented Features

    For the last 35 years, each vehicle that I have purchased has had undocumented features. Now I find these same undocumented features in my 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS. They are not listed on the order sheet, nor the build sheet, nor even in the brochure. For example, when I am approaching a curve...
  6. Cadillac LaCrosse

    Have you seen the 2013 Cadillac "LaCrosse?" The similarities are striking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSqETRrhiMs&list=UU2dBZuI6gS-jv7PCIDXkXag&index=2&feature=plcp I do note that there is an inside trunk release on the driver's door armrest.
  7. Automatic Recirculation

    I have the recirculation button set to the automatic mode which is to shut off (most) of the outside air when the car senses pollution. It does seem to work such as when I drive through a plume of burning leaves or wood. But there does not appear to be any indication when this mode switches...
  8. Daytime Running Lights

    The brochure for the 2010 LaCrosse says that the daytime running lights are "switchable." I realize that in Canada on the Allure that they cannot be turned off but here in the US it is an option by the manufacturer. I cannot find any information in my owners manual regarding the technique to...
  9. Key FOB Problems

    Is it just me or does anyone else find the CSX key FOB to be the worst part of the Buick LaCrosse experience. The buttons are not recessed so I am often backing out of the garage to find that, sometime prior, the trunk release has been pressed unbeknownst to me while in my pocket. I can only...
  10. Intelligent Assist Brakes

    I am here today to praise the intelligent assist brake function on our 2010 Buick LaCrosse. When we were considering this car, I did not understand what this feature provided. A search revealed that, when the brake pedal is applied quickly and strongly, the brake system augments the force that...
