    Is this so owners of Buick's can keep track of the lateral G's or more to keep track of your teenager who took out the family Buick?

    Either way, pretty cool - why don't I have this on my Cadillac?

    I've always known that there was far more data available than tire pressures, simple diagnostic reports of issue/no issue for drivetrain, locks, lights and horn, and start vehicle currently available on My Chevrolet, but is the average Buick driver really concerned with their Buick's performance data?

    The roll out on Buicks seems ...ill chosen.

    And why hasn't his been available for years?

    As I said above, I think it is to track your teenager. Dad talking to his 17 year old son "Well Jonny, I see you pulled 1.01 lateral G's with the Lacrosse. Impressive, now hand over the keys, your cell phone and your iPad. You are going nowhere for a month".
