Oh My I can't believe they would compare that thing to a Lexus or a Buick. When I googled photos of it and saw the instrument panel and dashboard I at first thought the center stack bore a similarity to Darth Vader's Mask. I've never heard of Carstood.com until now. It would be interesting to see what the more reputable people, such as MT, C&D, think. I'm sure it's a nice and well built vehicle but I don't view it in the same category of prestige.

Really, that's exactly what I would expect from a bunch of Hyundai fanboys. That forum site is possibly the home base of all the Hyundai cheerleader trolls that infest every other automotive forum on the net. Hyundai cannot touch the intrinsic qualities of cars like the Lacrosse despite how many geegaws they tack on. It's like buying a Walmart knockoff version of something.
#1966 of 2053 Navigation Disk Updates
Apr 09, 2012 (2:23 pm)
Well it didn't take long. I just received an email from GM to update my 2011 LaCrosse GPS. However, for the 2011 it is showing two update disks:
2012 Global A High Nav Disc part # 22827639 for $199.99 and
2011 SRX/Lacrosse/Terrain/Equinox/Regal/Volt/Cruze part # 20977834 for $199.99
I am unclear if you need both disks or just one. If so, which one? For model year 2012 it is showing only one disk (part # 22827639) though.
Since I also have OnStar turn-by-turn navigation does it make sense to buy the upgrade disk/s?

Good morning bwia,
My best recommendation would be to call the number provided for the Navigation Disc Center (877-628-3472) as I don't have the resources available to me to answer this question. I'm sorry about that!
All the best,

bwia: We have a 2010 Lacrosse CXL with 3.0L V-6 and a 2012 Sonata GLS with 2.5L I-4. both beautiful functional vehicles. Lacrosse is a $30's level car and the Sonata is a low $20's car with lots of value for the price. The Lacrosse is the most quiet car we have ever driven in. Interior is first class and the mileage & driveability with our small V-6 is oustanding. high 20's MPG on the highway with regular fuel. Luxury car for reasonable price.
The Sonata is much different as to the price and therefore the amenities. Great value and many options included. No leather seats, dual climate control and other features but all the basics and more. Great driver with 24-25 MPG city and 34-37 highway. The Azera will fill the gap for those willing to pay more.
Great cars and great choices available to us. Enjoy.

I have a 2010 Buick LaCrosse with 32,000 miles. I am experiencing a similar vibration (felt in stearing wheel) at 70+mph. Noticed it first last summer when I bought custom 20" rims/tires, the firmer tires exaggerated the problem more. My car has been at dealer for 35 days now. They've done nothing but loosen/tighten motor mounts, switch tires around, road force balance. Have your issues been addressed yet?

#1971 of 2053 iPhone Vs. Samsung Galaxy Tech Question
Apr 27, 2012 (10:22 am)
I lost my cell phone and I am in the market for a replacement. I am considering the iPhone 4 S and the Samsung Galaxy S II. Both phones seem very attractive and are available at a discounted upgrade price on the AT&T network. However, I am leaning toward the iPhone.
My questions are: does the iPhone 4S work as advertised? For example, can I really start my LaCrosse from a remote location? And if I use the Siri function does the audio go through the car speakers? And finally, are there any Bluetooth integration problems synchronizing the iPhone to the car?
On the other hand the graphics in the android-based Galaxy S II is great indoors but I am not sure how it holds up in direct sunlight. Also, how trouble-free is the Galaxy? Are there any Gremlins out there frustrating users? And how trouble-free are the apps on the open source android platform?
Any and all comments are much appreciated.

I certainly am in favor of buttons that are easily identified by touch which would be tied to location. Obviously the end game is voice commands, but in the meantime, if there are buttons---fix.
The HUD is one thing that should become universal in vehicles. Taking your eyes off the road is a danger situation. HID steerable, autodimming headlights are a big plus in my experience. Much brighter and don't bother oncoming traffic. The steerable puts light where you need it.
