Pros: What do you like about your 2010 Buick LaCrosse?
The car is lovely, super comfortable, and extremely stylish both inside and out. Love the blue lights at night. They simply did a terrific job with the entire look.
We have the biggest engine and most of the add on features. We did buy the nav, and I've not had problems with anything to do with it, other than the interface is clugy. But I love having the rear view mirror. Really encourage if you're on the fence, to get that. I also have the blind spot detection which I love.
Cons: How would you improve your 2010 Buick LaCrosse?
Three times now, the electronics have "rebooted" meaning the lights flash, and the dials go to zero and back up and the display runs through its start routine, as though you're just starting the car. I didn't lose power as some have noted, but it was in 5 lanes of interstate traffic on all three occasions and freaked me out. Of course the dealer could find nothing wrong - well, ma'am, we've not heard of that before. I also get false indicators where it will tell me something needs to be looked at, but then when I turn the car off and back on, the warning is gone. So, the electronics are flawed.
Second, like others are reporting, there are SERIOUS issues in shifting and acceleration. The person who noted 3 seconds sometimes to shift when trying to accelerate is correct. What's the purpose of the big engine if you can't go when you need to go. We've also experienced a loss of power momentarily when going slow around a corner near our house, so I guess I have had power issues, but it wasn't coincided with the electronics and it didn't die, just sputtered.
I agree the trunk latch is goofy. You slide your hand underneath until you hit the sweet spot to make it open.
Also, the location for the seat memory, is about 2 inches below the seat itself, so when you're getting out, it's easy to hit those buttons which resets the memory.
I can live with the little problems, and I do love the car, but the electronics and mechanics worry me a lot. I've had it less than 2 years and worry what will happen with time.
