Bought her new in 2010, just got back from my 7th trip to Florida (7 years in a row) yesterday and cleaned her up today.

Still looks great and runs like new, great car for long trips. I have had her to DC, Quebec City, New Orleans and San Diego (all the way from Toronto). All trips with the whole family and not one complaint from anybody.

Posting some pics after my labour of love!!!

Nice colour! Sharing similar love from Pickering for my '11 CXS, pushing 170K km (105K miles for you Americans 😊). I'll hate to be trading her in soon.20190902_161017.jpg

Looks good, has yours been super reliable too?
Yes, until the past year right around when she hit 100K miles. So....timing chains, battery and a new starter all in the span of a few months. Yikes. But now she runs like a dream! And of course after cleaning her up to look good for a possible trade-in, I can hardly bear to give her up.

That's not bad and the battery doesn't count...lol...so far I have done the water pump out of warranty (non-maintenance stuff)!

Something about a Blue Buick, they seem to be the longevity survivors over time

This '13 V6 averaged 3,000 miles a year by the previous owner...

It's my work commuter comfort car now - put 11,000 miles on it in 8 months...

Quite the trooper, it handles my abuse admirably.

It's no 350Z that the LaCrosse replaced, but it gets the job done.

I did recently get AWD version on the Z car to give the FWD V6 LaCrosse some relief in the Snow and ice over the winter...

a '16 Infiniti QX50, 325 HP, used with just 6,000 miles...

Yeah, your bud Bhodi looks to be all set for awhile in vehicle department.

The way the LaCrosse performs, it looks like the QX50 will be the pampered one while the LaCrosse does all the grunt work.

Happy motoring Fellow LaCrosse Fans.

The deep blue with a cream interior was what I was hoping to find. I'm very pleased with my garnet/ruby red color, but there is something extra elegant about the color combo of yours.
