Pros

Spacious interior for up to six; quiet, smooth ride; standard V6 power and available V8


Model Highlights

Two different interior configurations are offered for the LaCrosse; six-passenger models have a front bench seat with a flip-down center armrest, large storage bin and column-mounted shifter, while five-passenger models have two bucket seats in front with a deep center-console storage area and console-mounted shifter.

The LaCrosse's interior has a crafted appearance, with chrome and woodgrain trim and soft-touch materials. Special attention was paid to keeping the interior quiet; for instance, the windshield and front glass use a special acoustical laminate, while steel laminate is used in front of the dashboard. Additional roof-pillar baffles, lower-body sound deadeners, a specially tuned exhaust system, and engine-compartment sound insulation help make the LaCrosse one of the quietest sedans inside.

The base CX and more luxurious CXL get a 200-horsepower, 3.8L iron-block V6 engine, while the Super derives its power from a 300-horsepower, 5.3L V8. Both engines are matched with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The V8 employs active fuel management, which cuts of the fuel supply to half of the cylinders during coasting or cruising to save fuel; the base V6 also boasts 28 mpg on the highway, according to EPA estimates.

To handle the added power, V8 models come with a specially tuned suspension with Bilstein monotube struts, larger front and rear brake rotors, and high-precision steering gear.

StabiliTrak stability control, which can apply brake force to individual wheels to restore stability, is standard on the LaCrosse, along with anti-lock brakes.

Standout features available on the LaCrosse include ultrasonic rear parking assist, rear passenger reading lamps, heated power outside mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and remote start.


Model News

For 2009, the Buick LaCrosse changes little. The biggest change is that the sporty CSX trim level has been dropped, and with it goes the 3.6L V6. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now available and a tire inflation kit is standard.

Scarlett Red and and Platinum Metallic have been dropped as exterior colors, while Quicksilver Metallic has been added to the palette.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Buick LaCrosse ranks as one of the most comfortable mid-size sedans, with seating for up to six adults, a very quiet interior, and smooth, responsive engines. The Super model, with its V8 engine, brings a new sporty edge that should appeal to buyers who wouldn't have otherwise considered a Buick.

Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
