#2202 of 2335 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure - Loose roof moldings
Aug 29, 2007 (7:26 am)
Both roof molding on my 2008 Allure are loose at each end where they meet the windshield and rear window. These are the moldings that fill in the cavern where the roof and side panels are welded together.
My dealers service department said they could glue them down; however, there must be a more professional way to correct this assembly defect.
GM Canada was of no help.
Is there anyone out there that has a solution?

I'm pretty sure they are held on with two sided tape from the factory. Seems like glueing them on would be a good way tofix.

Recently, I noticed the instrument panel is mounted too high (about 1/8 inch) on the drivers side relative to the door trim. I noticed the same defect on two or three other cars I examined. The right side is perfect.
Perhaps 62vetteefp would know if this can be easily corrected? A service bulletin number would be great.

Dropping the IP would be sure hell and no one would attempt it. 1/8" is actually not that bad. BUT, someone may try and lift the door trim slightly if you really wanted to do that. Is the door on the outside OK or is it slightly dropped from the fender in the front. Not sure if an adjustment there would do it also.

#2210 of 2335 LaCrosse Super review
Oct 29, 2007 (10:16 am)
With all these things on our mind, we found the LaCrosse Super to be a vastly different vehicle from the base LaCrosse, and were pleasantly surprised at what the Super brought to the road. The performance gurus took a pillow-soft platform and made it stiff and compliant by using much stiffer Bilsteing monotube struts. Steering was also tweaked, and the brakes were up-sized. The result is a Buick that can not only hit 60 in 5.7 seconds, but can also hit a turn at speed without feeling like it's going to tip. The Super is one of those vehicles that makes you think you're not going as fast as you are, so we had to really watch the speedometer while accelerating and cruising on the freeway. The LaCrosse Super's steering is also far more weighted and precise than what we're used to in a Buick, and coupled with four pinned-down wheels, this sedan was both more fun to drive and more luxurious than the V8-powered Impala SS we drove a year ago.
The engineers that put the Super in the LaCrosse deserve a small round of applause for what they did here, as it represents a great deal of fun and amenities for a relative bargain. GM intends to only make as many LaCrosse Supers as people will want, and 10% of overall sales tends to be the magic number. Even though the base LaCrosse can be had with an improved 3.6L V6, our V8-powered Super with a $33,750 price tag is the only LaCrosse that we'd consider. For shoppers looking at a Mercury Sable, Toyota Avalon, or Chrysler 300C, the LaCrosse Super is definitely worth a passing glance.
#2211 of 2335 Used LaCrosse CXS - Any concerns?
Nov 09, 2007 (8:24 am)
I've run across a used 2005 LaCrosse CXS with 37k miles on it, that I'm considering to replace my 2000 Impala. Since the CXS has the 3.6l engine (and not the 3.8 that I'm very familiar with), I just wondered if anyone had any anecdotal info (good or bad) on the 3.6l engine to pass along - reliability, fuel economy, etc. I also realize 2005 was the first year of the LaCrosse, so if there are any year one bugs to look out for that'd be worth knowing too (though my 2000 Impala was also a first-year design, and it's been relatively trouble free).
This particular car was built in March of 2005, if that matters.
