That sounds about right. Now noting that he does not have the NAV, he likely has the tiny screen.
Unsure if having NAV changes how the system works, or how it changes since the update program was listed for CXS with blind spot only, on that one there was a difference I was told by dealer. I was told by dealer that using the remote to activate unlocking/memory there would be no delay in movement of seat. I never personally verified because I always used the (passive opening ?) door handle recognizing FOB presence part of system.
To me, it seems ridiculous that GM has not been able to increase the delay for seat movement. Or fix the accidental trunk opening because the remote button gets bumped with FOB in pocket. I've now had my Lincoln MKS 7 months and never had the trunk open inadvertantly. This system requires 2 distinct pushes of trunk button. Apparently the GM system can't be taught to count to 2.

"To my understanding, the settings of the seat and mirrors are programmed to the key fob"
Perhaps it is a play on words. The FOB remembers nothing, except it is #1 or #2 or assigned position relative to the onboard system. A FOB will always transmit the same info. Matching a FOB to a vehicle is done within the onboard, that is the onboard is taught to recognize a FOB as belonging to the vehicle. I'm not sure where that mis-information started, but it was told to me by 800-customer service.

Rider: We thought you "turned in " your Lacrosse, Malibu or whatever GM product you bashed for years and then moved on - or NOT! Most posters on Edmunds like their lacrosse and GM cars in general. Life is too short for the inane griping and constant chatter on life's little problems. Cars are tools to get around your life in - not a zen moment. good luck with your bashing contract or activities or whatever you do for fun. we love our 2010 CXL.

Never had the problem on my 2010 CXS. I turned it in about 6-7 weeks before the 27 month lease ended. Got a check back for $1090 due to condition and ow miles (17900). I'm now driving a Buick Regal GS Turbo Six Speed stick. An even better car. Better visibility, better sound system, and better gas mileage. Lowered my lease payment by $220 (39 mo.)

Good morning e_net_rider,
"Every time the ignition is placed in OFF, the positions of the driver seat and outside mirrors are automatically stored to the RKE transmitter that was used to start the vehicle." p. 3-6 of the 2011 LaCrosse Manual
In looking further, it appears that what would have once been on a fob has been integrated with the key, and so my use of the word "fob" appears to have been in error. I apologize for my mistake and will be more diligent in my terminology so as to avoid confusion.

Let's stick to talking about the vehicle and avoid any personally-directed comments, which cause posts to disappear.

These threads here are filled with his growling, so much so that it had me a little nervous before I bought my LaCrosse.
The only problems I have had on my 2010 CXS is that the battery had to be replaced (it was bad to start with) and fully covered under warranty, and my NAV system had to be reprogrammed (also under warranty). I'm at 30k miles and highly satisfied. I do feel that a car of this cailber could come with better tires. The stock Goodyears are almost gone and have developed some light cupping. I think I'm going to replace with a General G-Max, purchased thru my dealer.

Joe: It gets a little tiresome to hear anyone gripe constantly when they are fortunate to have a brand new higher end car to drive when others can barely afford gas. Unfortunately, the negative bashing gets more response hits than the positive posts - so some people encourage the bashers - regardless of true motive. A car is only a platform to carry many expendable parts that are designed to be installed by semi-skilled or unskilled workers in many countries. The parts are interchangeable (thank you Eli Whitney and Henry Ford) in most cases, so we don't pay the cost of the space shuttle. most of the time bad parts are intercepted in the process, so we get good dependable cars. This buyer is thankful for well built safe cars at reasonable prices.
Our 2010 Lacrosse CXL has been a truly beautiful performer at a fair price.
