bwia: Methinks the ole bashers are back. We had the one joker that complained about EVERYTHING on his Lacrosse. I thought he had GM "take it back", but he still posts complaints. Strange behavior unless he gets paid to post untruths for some reason. Some people are just unhappy and can not move on.
Our 2010 CXL has been great and really a lot of value for the money. We are truly fortunate to have good cars and good roads to drive them on. Enjoy!

Why not just take the questions at face value until proven otherwise? There's no evidence to support that this person is a "basher." The best bet is to post your OWN experience with the product, and if the member returns and posts specific concerns, address them then.
#1986 of 2056 Can the titles within the hard drive be changed
Sep 03, 2012 (11:29 am)
I have a 2010 Buick LaCrosse and many of the CD's I've recorded onto the hard drive don't record with the names of the albums/artists or tracks. All that comes up is the date it was recorded and number of tracks. Can't exactly remember something by the date I recorded into the hard drive. Any suggestions?

The only way you can get it to do that is to rip the CD to your computer, then name the folder on the computer that contains the CD, then name the track ( if they are not already) transfer that to a zip drive or blank CD/DVD then save it to the car. I wish the technology were far enough along that the car would sync to a server which automatically pulled the track names in and also backed up the hard drive and vehicle customization settings to a cloud server.

There are credible reports of Hyundai, among others, paying agents to troll message boards such as this and to do exactly what those posters here are doing. I don't know if the bashers here are on someone's payroll or not, but the pattern is similar.

Perhaps the CDs were not original. If that is the case you should do what joelippard3 suggested.
#1991 of 2056 Aftermarket GPS unit
Sep 29, 2012 (9:24 am)
Has anyone installed an aftermarket GPS unit in their 2010 - 2013 Lacrosse? More specifically I am interested in how well this aftermarket GPS product works and if it was easy to install. The model number of the equipment I am considerin to purchase is OCG-5068R Radio DVD GPS Navigation Headunit for Buick Lacrosse and it is made in China; which makes me somewhat nervous. I would be interested in hearing your comments even if you are not the owner but know of someone who has experience with any aftermarket GPS equipment.
#1992 of 2056 memory seat has me stumped
Oct 06, 2012 (10:48 am)
i feel really stupid , i have a 2011 buick lacrosse cxl awd with all options less nav and rear entertainment , i love the car , but one thing i cant figure out is the memory seats , i do have keyless entry , and have memory seat position set on position 1, seat and mirrors work perfect , but when unlock d/s front door , the seat does not move to that position , but i do have seat set that when you open the drivers door , the seat will go back all the way , easy exit function
now i am a work for a bmw dealer , and bmw has this mastered in reference to memory seats , and car key memory , and i am not putting down buick, the lacrosse is a awesome car , i could have had a bmw 550 xi for the same amount as the lacrosse , but i wanted the buick , i set bmw car key memory easily , so what is it that i am doing or not doing, i looked on u tube but they ise a car with nav, the settings are not the same , been there done that ,
other than that my lacroose is awesome , no complaints here
if gm customer svc can help ,id appreciate it
btw i have personally wrote a letter to mr thompson at buick marketing how happy i am with the dealership and the car , i made a great choice

As I recall, on the 2011 there were separate settings for it to move back for easy exit, and that setting is called that, and the settings for it to move into place for driving.
If you can get it to move to your settings with the settings button, you may be happier with that option. Try it and see. The reason I say that is GM programming has been ultimately stupid and they refuse to fix at my last experience. Originally the seat started moving the moment you pulled the door handle, using passive entry. They eventually introduced a 1 second delay, but they could do better. That was demonstrated by a loaner the dealer had me in which had a full 3 seconds. That vehicle got reprogrammed to the 1 second. Dealer told me GM wanted them all alike at the 1 second, otherwise they may have to fix all to the 3 seconds for free.
Also CXL AWD may function somewhat differently. Early 2011 seat memory issues were to be fixed by module replacement. Then GM changed that to reprogramming if it was a CXS with blind spot monitoring, if I remember correctly. You can find it in the TSB listing if interested. The reprogramming was crap.
Did GM ever fix the boots falling down on rear shocks? I have not yet seen that correction. You can easily check yours by looking behind rear wheel, as look inward from side. You will see a shiny rod oriented mostly vertical if the problem still exists. I presume you will be doing salt and snow driving with the AWD. Dirt, dust, corrosive salt, etc. will get on that shock piston rod and cause an earlier failure of the shocks piston rod seals. GM has probably determined that failure will not happen within warranty. So you will get bit with both shock and boot assembly if not taken care of within warranty.
There were many changes coming part year as they were available. There may have been GM literature errors on top the rest of mess. H-arm rear suspension was originally standard on AWD and CXS, that is according to GM papers available from about JAN 2010. 2011 models were available from around JUL of 2010. Shortly, the H-arm became an option on CXS with package including Touring (full time electronic suspension) and different wheels/tires.
I had presumed the H-arm was listed on AWD because of rear drive shafts. That is, it may not have been possible to add rear drive with the other suspension.
Would you please post back if the boots have fallen on the rear shocks? It seems to be a near certainty on other models. AWD is less common and nice to know if they are affected as badly.
