I explained my experience with buying a new Buick and this section is called "Buick Lacrosse: Prices Paid & Buying Experience" My experience was bad. It was a bad experience with the dealer and Buick there is no disputing that. Would have been happy given my situation? If you would, I'd gladly sell you my car and wish you luck. Since your reply to my experience seems to be an effort to minimize the events I wonder if you are a dealer or Buick rep trying to do some damage control. If you are a dealer of Buick rep I'm sure I see another posting from you attempting more damage control.

Ahh you caught me! I am paid lots of money to watch this LaCrosse forum and make comments. Obviously not the dealer though because I told you he sucked.
Seriously, sorry you feel that my comments are bad. I was not trying to minimize your issue. You did have a very poor experience but I was just stating that your expectations were a bit much. Engine replacement would be the way it would be worked out anywhere.
Hey, I responded back so I must be a dealer or Buick rep. Caught me again. darn. Better send an invoice to someone!

I'll never know if you're a dealer of Buick rep but I appreciate that you acknowledged how I feel about my car buying experience, and yea the dealer sucks, but with more than 17 dealerships I'm just another number. Without dragging this thing out I was told by a Buick customer service manager that Buick was looking into buying the car back, and that was just one of many lies told by Buick and the dealer. There is a lot more that went on with Buick and the dealer but writing it all down would be beating this thing into the ground. It's enough to say this is what happened to me and let it be. As for my expectations I met a Toyota owner and a Subaru owner and both had a major problem with their cars and both Toyota and Subaru did the right thing replacing the vehicles.

I just got a used LaCrosse CX with 14000 miles. It had cloth seats, sun roof, trip computer, driver power seats. Paid $18,000 out the door.
#21 of 64 2008 Buick LaCrosse Super
Sep 24, 2007 (9:58 am)
I ordered my new car (red jewel tintcoat) on July 13th and I'm glad I did! At the time its MSRP was $31,310, but I see where Buick recently raised it to $31,995. Not only that, but with GM now on strike, who knows when they'll resume building more, and what the price will be. Anyway, my salesrep was very honest about availability and pricing. Even though this is a new model, I knew my car would be built with tender loving care at Buick's #2 Oshawa plant. And I was right, because I haven't found a single thing wrong with it (so far) since I took delivery on August 20th. This car is really a baby boomer's dream. I've been waiting patiently for Buick to build a car with great performance (5.3 liter V-8), comfort (superb powered and heated leather seats), and looks (beautiful new interior design, new "waterfall" grill, and dual exhausts) for a long time. I recommend taking a look at one.
#22 of 64 Pricing Question
Sep 24, 2007 (7:02 pm)
I am looking at buying a new LaCrosse and I think I can get the supplier pricing through a family member (I am going to order one) it is $450 over invoice. Do you think I should just go in with that or go in empty handed and try to haggle for a better price? Any suggestions or experiences would be of help.

To answer your question (based on my experience), the salesrep and I negotiated my car's price, but he would NOT negotiate the shipping charge ($685). I paid cash, so he knocked off $500 from the MSRP, and gave me the $1000 manufacturer to customer instant rebate. As for your scenario, if you're considering a 2007 model, I'm sure the dealer will be more than happy to sell at $450 over invoice just to get rid of the car. They must sell their remaining '07 cars to make room for the '08 ones they ordered.

Thanks for the info. Since I am going to order a 2008 as well, I think I may then wait and try to go for the Supplier discount. Of course I don't get the rebates when I order, just when the car gets delivered. So that is a gamble, but worth it to get what I really want.
#25 of 64 new CXS LaCross 2006
Oct 12, 2007 (9:57 am)
A dealer showed me a new CXS LaCross 2006, which has 540 Miles on it. There is a $7500 off on the original price. Do you think that I should buy this car cheaper? Is it OK that itís a 2006 car and still new?

You don't mention the $$ but $7500 off does NOT sound good to me. $21K would be the most I would consider paying for this USED car. An '06 with 540 miles on it really is used.
Post you OTD price and I'd tell you more or try edmunds.com and appraise a used '06 with 540 miles on it, clean, with your options. Use the Private Party price and I'll bet it's under $20K in real market value.
