    Introducing my new (used) LaCrosse

    I haven't been able to log into my account for a few months, but back in July I decided it was time to upgrade from my hand-me-down Park Avenue. At 225,000 miles, it was really starting to have some issues pop up, nothing extreme, but the usual things you'd suspect with a car of that vintage.

    I started the search looking at vehicles that had the following options: heated/ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic sunroof. (Head-up Display was something I wanted, but wasn't going to break a deal) Basically I was looking at Regals, LaCrosse, Veranos, 9-5s, and SRXs.

    My brother-in-law works at a dealer in Indianapolis and came across a 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS Touring with 70,000 miles that I ended up getting a hell of a deal on.



    I bought it in late July and have since put nearly 10,000 miles on it and I love it. It has all the features I was looking for, including HUD (I don't think I can go without it now) and even having the 19-inch wheels, it still rides great.

    Re: Introducing my new (used) LaCrosse

    Just the other day as I saw this generation and a new LaCrosse next to each other; I believe the new one is an overall better car, I like this one a lot better.

    The taller more upright seating, or at least the appearance, makes it more attractive to me.

    Congratulations on your new wheels, mind sharing what you paid? Something like this would be a great fit for someone I know that is in a "less than perfect" financial situation.

    When it comes to the new one and this generation, I think it was a great stepping stone. I love the looks with the sweepspear and the 19" rims, but the new one is long, low, and wide. They both have their great attributes.
    I definitely like the larger interior room on the new ones, I get a bit cramped at times in this one, and I'm not Shaq tall.
    I was at $12,500 thanks to the family discount, a.k.a. getting it at invoice.

    It has the light cashmere and dark cocoa. I'd (likely) never buy a car with a black or gray interior.

    Re: Introducing my new (used) LaCrosse

    The 2010-2016 LaCrosse was a high point for Buick. Though I find the new one a little nicer style wise the interior is cheaper feeling and looking and they are a little bit noisier and harsher riding than the previous generation. Congrats on the beautiful car!

    Nice car, congrats to you. Although I like the new one, for some reason it is making me like this version even more.
