2014 Buick LaCrosse




Are you in the market for a new sedan? The 2014 Buick LaCrosse just might be the right one for you. The Buick LaCrosse is a gorgeous vehicle that will definitely make heads turn. 

The 2014 Buick LaCrosse is truly a gorgeous vehicle with so many upgrades inside and out. You really can't go wrong if you choose to buy a Buick. 

We actually owned a 2005 Buick LaCrosse CXL for 3.5 years and we loved it. It was luxurious and the ride was spectacular. So when I had the chance to test drive a new one I couldn't wait!! The upgrades they have done are just outstanding. 

The model I drove was the 2014 Buick LaCrosse AWD and let me tell you, it's really nice to have an all wheel drive car these days. They are few and far between and living in MI, it's really nice to have that option on any type of vehicle you choose. 

The interior is just beautiful and so well put together and designed.
 8" high resolution touch screen was a nice feature!
 I love the dual temperature control, I just didn't like was the capacitive touch. You need to push that little button for each degree and when you're driving that can be a hazard. It took a while to get to a comfortable temperature.
I love the heated seats though of course. But this also has cooled seats.
The steering wheel mounted controls make things a bit easier while you're driving. And it also includes a control for the heated steering wheel! A very nice feature in these cold winters.

The back seat is very large. I was able to get both kids car seats in here with ease and there was still enough room in the middle for a third person.
 It also features the panoramic sunroof with a nice shade over it.


In the same place as the buttons for the sunroof was a button for the rear shade. Push it and the shade goes up or down. This was a really nice feature. My son is still rear facing in his car seat and the sun can get pretty bright. I loved this.

 Lots of leg room.
 The trunk was very large as well (sorry about this picture, it was a very bright morning)

The Buick LaCrosse AWD has a lot of safety features as well. It has Forward Collision Alert and it provides audio and visual warnings when you get too close. It has the Blind Zone Alerts on the side mirrors as well so you know when someone is in your blind spot. 
It also has the backup camera that shows you right where you're going when the wheel turns.

One of my favorite features, and it was a bit weird at first. When you cross over a line in the road, that side of your seat vibrates. Also if you're getting close to something your seat vibrates to alert you it's there as well. It was definitely a shocker at first when it happened, but is a really nice feature. 

The Base Price of the LaCrosse is $33,135. The Price of the one I drove was the Premium 1 Model and came in at $46,670, but the features are 100% worth it!
Normally I don't take pics of the outside of the car, but this one was too beautiful not to.



I would recommend the Buick LaCrosse to anyone and I have in the past since we had such good luck with ours. 
*Disclaimer, I received a Buick LaCrosse for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle.

I like this car and the fact that it drives so well, but as a mother with young kids I would hesitant to buy such an expensive car. This would be a great car for when your children are pre-teens to young adult age. I would definitely like this vehicle when my kids are old enough to drive. I know they will be safe.


cbaty said...

That is a beautiful car


Laura Ann said...

wow such a nice car with great features!


Samantha Yoder said...

Oooooh I wanted one of those so bad and I tried to convince my husband to get one last month when his car got wrecked and we had to buy him a new one. He ended up choosing a Honda Pilot :( When it's my turn for a new car I definitely want a Buick.


Sarah Hayes said...

I love the look of this car. they have really changed how I see Buick. It is very sleek and anyone would look great driving it


Charity said...

Very cool car... love the back up system. Thanks for the review.


Mama Blamer said...

I love thatit has a sunroof and a back up camera. this car is much too small for my families needs but its a cool car.


Bekah Kuczenski said...

That is such a classy looking car you are so lucky! I love the way the interior looks and I love that it has heated seats, I could use those this winter :)


aus_chick said...

Looks like a nice car! Our next car though will most likely be a minivan to keep up with our growing family -- and trips to ikea/lowes!


Rachel said...

I've never heard of cooled seats! Sounds awesome for people who live in warm climates!


Leela R. said...

It's a bit of a large car for my taste, but the interior does look very nice.


lockwk17 said...

I love the way this car looks, but it is way out of our price range.


matope said...

holy fancy car batman. i like the size and the sunroof action going on but i would not be comfortable in something that high end. i'll stick with my rusty old truck!


Kerri Hebard-Massey said...

That's remarkably shiny! I'm still more of a subcompact (albeit one with the best safety rating) kind of girl. We'll have to see if that changes once kiddo is out in the world.


Ashley-Raye said...

This car is gorgeous, I love the deep trunk and the sunroof!


TR said...

The interior of this car is beautiful - it looks like it'd be such a comfortable ride!


kathy pease said...

This looks awesome..I really love the Forward Collision Alert that provides audio and visual warnings when you get too close :)


MidgeLidge said...

I love cars that have the camera for backing up, but I feel like I would get so confused haha.


Jessica Snyder said...

elbarnes said...

Hmm, I've always preferred Japanese cars, but thanks for the review!!!


Amy said...

That is a beautiful car. I'm impressed that it has cooled seats. That is a pretty rare feature, but so great if you live in a place where it gets really hot in the summer.


Sarah McKelvy said...

I'd love the back up video. I am always worried that there's someone behind me when I reverse.


LauraJJ said...

Oh what a beautiful car! I love the feature that if you cross over a line in the road, that side of your seat vibrates! That is so amazing!!! I would think that would help alot of accidents!


Jen F said...

This looks like such a great car. I love the back-up camera feature.


Beth Ann said...

This car would spoil me rotten! I love that the review camera tells you where you would be going based on the degree your wheel is turned. Technology is so fancy these days!


Devon F said...

Such a snazzy looking car! I like the feature that your seat vibrates while crossing over lines


Kimberly said...

Now THAT is a nice car!


Colleen Maurina said...

Wow, this car has some great features! I especially like the safety features such as the backup camera. I also like that the back seat is roomy.


Abigail said...

Heated AND cooled seats? I love it!


Sandra VanHoey said...

Love everything about this and I really like the vibrating feature that alerts you. It may be a shocker at first but sure would be helpful in the long run


Janet W. said...

This is such a nice looking vehicle! I could really use an excellent back up camera like that one!

Janell wagner said...

Savannah Logan said...

i love when you can get a good family car that still makes you feel like a kid on the inside when you drive it.


Marti Tabora said...

That's a really beautiful car. My messy family would surely make a mess of it.


calebbrasher said...

It's a beautiful car, but way too expensive for me!


Theresa M said...

I love that car but no new cars for me. I would love it though but too expensive with 2 kids in college.


Maryann D. said...

This is definitely a classy car. Well made and hopefully reliable. One day I hope to afford it.

scottsgal said...

my friend had this vehicle. It worked great in the snow in the winter and was a really nice riding vehicle


Leslie Brown said...

What a gorgeous car! I love the sunroof, and the vibrating seat warning device, although that would be hard to get used to at first. Definitely a luxury car!


Pam Halligan said...

The Buick Lacrosse is a classy looking vehicle. I like it's features, especially the sunroof.


clc408 said...

I appreciate the blind spot alert. It would make me feel secure when changing lanes.


Karen O said...

This car looks really luxurious. I really like the way the seat vibrates when the driver gets too close to something. That's neat!

Mya Murphy said...

Nice car, but being epileptic and unable to drive, this doesn't apply to me.


Michelle Holmstrom said...

This Buick doesn't look like a 'grandpa car' anymore!


Laurie Nykaza said...

This car is beautiful and we have a Buick and they are great cars.


Kevin Puls said...

While the Buick Lacrosse looks like a sharp car, I refuse to buy any GM or Chrysler/Dodge product.


Marti Tabora said...

This is a really beautiful car and I would love to be able to have one of them one day.


lilyk said...

This car looks very nice. Thanks for sharing!


Cynthia Cover said...

I love that your seat vibrates when you cross over a line...talk about a jolt!


Buddy Garrett said...

It has a lot of impressive features but I can't afford it/


susan1215 said...

I like the Forward Collision Alert that provides audio and visual warnings when you get too close. and the Blind Zone Alerts on the side mirrors as well so you know when someone is in your blind spot.


lgothard said...

rajee pandi said...

Amy Orvin said...

Thomas Murphy said...

Wow! nice ride.


LAMusing said...

Very stylish design - looks like a high price import.


Jen at A Heart Full of Love said...

Gorgeous car! I love that it has a sensor to alert you when you are crossing the line or getting to close to something. Unfortunately we are stuck with a minivan for awhile as we have 4 kids.


Anne said...

Nice car. I'm not a fan of touch screens in cars, though--much too distracting for the driver, as it takes the eyes and one hand away from driving to use it.


Lynne said...

Heated seats and cooled seats sound wonderful. Right now this vehicle is beyond our budget....maybe one day!


Tara Carlson said...

I love the safety features in this car - I've heard of the backup camera before (which I really want), but haven't heard of the Blind Zone Alerts on the side mirrors. What a great idea!


Gianna said...

Looks like a pretty sweet car.


bxcrochet said...

loving that rear camera.

momo said...

(2014 Buick LaCrosse) I have been wanting one of these for a while now. I had a 1996 Buick Lasbre and loved that old car. Would buy a Buick anything now days I think. I was and am still a happy customer of theirs.


Marcia Lee said...

The Buick Lacrosse is a beautiful vehicle and I loved the features especially blind spot and rear camera. But now that my husband and I are retired, I am afraid $45,000 is way over our budget.


lil_lady_dz said...

the heated and cooling of the seats is always a plus! And I love the sunroof! I have one on my 2003 grand am and love it!


rj7777 said...

Thanks for the nice review. I have seen this a lot and I was impressed just looking at it on the road. i had to find out what it was when I first saw it. Maybe someday, I have been driving a Ford explorer and I am used to this now. This is a great car! Rita Spratlen


Jerry Marquardt said...

I think that the LaCrosse is a great car. I loved your review, and it really complements the car greatly.
