Do you regret buying a LaCrosse vs SUV?

"hill"... "ice"... lol Better stay in the south, you don't know how easy you got it. :p
HaHaHa!! LOL. I was at the bottom of the hill in the picture and it keep going with a few curves and gets a bit steeper the higher you go. Only me and a few other truck/SUV even made it up the road to the top. Most other cars just gave up and parked on the side of the road like the sliver Buick in the picture. A couple of brave or foolish drivers in cars was just slipping and sliding down the road in the opposite direction.

However, you are right that most of us Southerners do not handle icy roads well. Not at all.:)

I personally had no problem getting around, but it was funny watching most of the other drives slip and slide all over the damn road. Well, until one started sliding towards my Caddy.:eek:

I find my LaCrosse fine. I installed a hitch kit, and can pull trailer if needed. mileage is crap when I am towing the trailer. And the rear seat comes down. So it's a plus. With the little one growing up, I may get an SUV. But will see.

So far I am happy with LaCrosse.

No reason for SUV for the need for cargo. Not yet anyway.

I like the looks of the Enclave. I think I'd trade the LaCrosse for the height and looks of a new Enclave if the Enclave got anywhere near the mileage I get from the LaCrosse... (and if the wife would let me)

I own both of these vehicles and they are fantastic. They are two different animals. You can do the same things with both. Both are comfortable, AWD, run great, fun to drive.

I'm a big fan of those GM coupes, I almost bought a Monte Carlo but didn't work out, I wish they would come out with a Buick branded coupe!
I had a 1970, 1972, 1982, and then bought a brand new 1988 SS, Always loved the old Monte Carlo’s

Do you ever wish you had the higher visibility of an SUV? It seems many car models are being discontinued do to lack of sales. Are you content with your LaCrosse?
Was going to buy a slightly used Tacoma TRD sport for the wife as she wanted one for her next vehicle, but just couldn’t stand the thought of driving a truck all day and then coming home and jumping into a small truck, always wanted a third generation lacrosse with all wheel drive so we got that instead, was shocked about how great a motor the LGX is,Do not regret buying it

I have never had any desire to own an SUV and thus have absolutely no regrets buying my LaCrosse. That said, my dad, not long before he passed away, said that if he had it to do over again, he would have bought a GMC Acadia instead of the LaCrosse my mom still has because it would have been easier for him to get in and out of, being a little higher off the ground.
