You are in the Buick LaCrosse
What is this discussion about?
Buick LaCrosse, Sedan
#1 of 87 2010+ Buick Lacrosse - Interior
Oct 16, 2010 (6:03 am)
As the title says, issues related to Interior, except where there is a more specific discussion.

I have now learned that the dead zones have greatly increased over what was present in a 2009 Malibu. After driving through familiar areas I located a dozen dead zones I did not know existed.
As I already posted elsewhere, a problem spot I was already familiar with quadrupled in size. And looking for logic I found the antenna painted and in my case with metal flake which definitely could block signal. The paint alone could be causing such because special paint is needed for antennae.
Is anyone else having dropouts?
#3 of 87 Headrest - Pain in the neck
Oct 16, 2010 (8:33 pm)
I wanted to keep this point going because I've seen enough complaints about the headrest with complaints of discomfort to pain.
I see it as a safety issue where it could cause more harm than good.
I certainly would like to see them replaced with fore and aft adjustment.

This also big topic.
Many have had issue with it relocating as we think it should.
So far I've learned that easy exit on is necessary for the seat to move back upon exiting.
But in that mode the seat moves forward upon opening driver door, before you have a chance to get in. This is a complaint.
And it only works this way if you go through the entire order of door closed, engine started. engine shut off, door opened, closed then locked. And then the system get confused with key left in car message.
The programmers really mess this up.
This needs fixing, and since it is programming, maybe they can alter the function of seat memory buttons. Change them to momentary rather than hold, which may actually need a hold command inserted in that language. Perhaps there is room in the routines to allow for two new memorized positions so as to have two possible setting for day and two night. Or other preferred settings matching your conditions.
#5 of 87 Seat Memory misfire
Oct 16, 2010 (8:58 pm)
A new wrinkle has developed. A couple of times it has now failed to move to the previous settings. I know I read in the manual that it is supposed to auto-memory from the settings before shutting down.
Does anyone know what this could be?
#6 of 87 Infotainment - music
Oct 16, 2010 (9:40 pm)
I'm not able to figure out some usage of the system.
Maybe someone can Help?
I see where it says that up to 10GB is available for recording music.
I don't understand how it handles a CD. Purchased one that has .CDA files on it.
It says you can record music to the HDD and the formats supported are: mp3, mp3-Pro, WMA, Audible.com -which is a site for purchasing books on disks, & m4a.
So what does it do with the CD?
Does it make an exact copy of the CD which would then be .CDA files. It would seem they'd have to make a special effort to stop you from inputing CDA files via USB devices?
If recorded in one of the formats that says is supported, which one? There is no way to select!
I'm sure we'd all like the highest quality audio possible.
If you must use one of the supported formats listed, then there is some good news. It will handle mp3 of the highest bit rate, and sampling. 320kbs 48KHz.
I don't know much about the Pro version currently, but when it came out it was intended to be used with the lower bit rates and compress them further to still lower bit rates. Making it quicker to download when many were still bandwidth restricted such as dial-up.
WMA, know what they are and shyed away because of MS making it proprietary and licensed.
I explained the books as best I can.
But still better is the m4a. It is supposed to be lossless. I have no idea how much space files use other than it must be lower than CDA yet equal quality. I'm dabbling with finding encoder and other software to handle the conversion and recording. This is the type of audio file you'd find on a Blu-ray disk where they have the capability of recording a separate track for each speaker on a 7.1 surround sound.
It will be interesting to see how the HK surround handles that. It is likely that pressed discs will be made that way.

Have you taken your vehicle to the dealership so they can look into the concern further? Thank you,

Not yet Mariah. I've only had the car 11 days so I am still learning the vehicle. But on the seat not moving to last position, that seems to be a definite since it did it twice last evening. The first time I reset the seat manually via the buttons to where I wanted it. The second time I used seat memory button 1 and that worked, although the button has to be held.

Did you save the setting to the same number each time driver 1 or driver 2? Also, if you have another driver of the vehicle and are using the same key fob for the vehicle it will recognize the previous driver unless you push your driver button. However, if you are still experiencing a concern with the seat I would recommend going back to the dealership to have them look at it. They can also check the key fob to make sure that it is also working correctly. If you have any further questions please let me know. Thank you,

Have been saving to button 1. Always using same key and only driver to date. First time this morning it positioned wrongly. I corrected with seat button 1. The second time it was moving to far by time I attempted to get in, so I stopped it and backed it up enough to get in, then used button 1. The third time it moved to where it was supposed to, but it moves forward as soon as door is opened always if complete cycle is done. Shutdown, exit, lock, unlock, open door.
