Cars.com Reviews the 2013 Buick LaCrosse

2013BuickLaCrosse

The 2013 Buick LaCrosse eAssist doesn't offer the Volkswagen Passat TDI's value or the high-end Lexus ES 300h's fuel economy, but Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger says it "pleasantly" splits the difference between practicality and price. The mild hybrid version of Buick's largest sedan improves gas mileage with its lithium-ion battery pack and 15-kilowatt electric motor combined with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine; the result is seamless acceleration and a "pillowy" ride. While the LaCrosse's lush interior draws nearer to "luxury" than "near-luxury" competitors, backseat comfort and cargo space may necessitate hanging on to that hyphen.

It's worth noting that because diesel fuel contains 15% more energy per gallon than gasoline (which is reflected in the higher cost of diesel), the mileage of the Passat and LaCrosse are equivalent.

been looking for a good blog about a reliable auto mechanic service so I’m glad I found yours. Good stuff!

I think GM should make a next generation epsilon platform. and make it a full-size higher end AWD platform and make it so it would be like the omega platform but cheaper and AWD not RWD.
