Vehicle: Buick LaCrosse Premium I (2013)


Recommended Posts

Congrats! I know you've been looking for it for a while

 

Congratulations to you and your wife on the purchase!

 

Thank you, both of you!  Yes, she's been wanting a LaCrosse for a long time (since they came out in 2010).  I offered to let her get a new Buick back in February when I traded my '06 GMC Envoy, but she was happy with the Pontiac G6 (especially since it was paid off!).  But riding in my truck, seeing how nice a new vehicle is, and several of our friends and family members getting something new this year, really motivated her to wanting a Buick LaCrosse.  She did not waiver from that model at all during our search, and finances dictated that a pre-owned model would be the best way to go about this purchase. I tried and tried like heck to find the trim (Premium I or higher) through the GM Certified Pre-owned Program, but most of the 2013 LaCrosse's were base or Leather models (we found one Touring model back in August, but the dealer wasn't interested in the trade-in of the Pontiac and low-balled me badly).  We are lucky to have a CarSense dealership in our backyard, so we've been visiting their site and several Buicks the past two months.  This was the first Premium model that was in our price range and had the bare minimum of options she really wanted.  18,264 miles on the odometer, balance of the factory 4 year/50k mileage warranty plus the warranty CarSense provides (6 months/6,000 miles bumper-to-bumper), Carbon Black Metallic exterior with Titanium Leather Interior, heated & ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, rear power sunshade, panoramic sunroof, 18" chrome wheels - all hooked her early on.  She still has a permagrin on her face since taking delivery Saturday afternoon. More pictures will be posted once I take some with my digital camera and I'll post more about the car and what we like about it the most soon.

High five for buying a pre-refresh Lacrosse. I think they're gorgeous, the best looking production buick in 50 years (sorry grand national).

 

This is a 3.6L V6 model, correct? In the future, if you or your wife have any complaints about the powertrain (shifting or power response), give me a shout. A few tweaks to the tune can make a world of difference over factory. Really transformed my Malibu V6.
