Just got my December Consumer Reports. I was shocked that the redesigned LaCrosse fell from way above average in reliability for the 2016 model to way below average for the 2017 model. Trouble spots included a rough shifting 8 speed transmission, the nontraditional gear selector, the infotainment system goes blank, navigation is buggy and phones are difficult to pair.
Too bad. Buick was a bright spot for GM in the reliability department. Overall, Buick fell from number 5 last year to number 8 this year, still the top domestic brand.
