2010 Buick LaCrosse CXL

Buick is trying it's best to get out of the bad vibe it has recently experienced. Bankruptcy and bail-out are not the two news stories your customers want to remember when they visit your authorized dealers. But that's the fact Buick has to live with and try to make it up with a good car. The good news is, it has already started with the 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXL.

At first glance the CXL is a behemoth vehicle. Weighing 4,196 lbs, the car aims to give its best when it comes to space while sacrificing weight. Fortunately, this technique works as the car has very impressive legroom. But the apparent impressive legroom has sacrificed the trunk. The space at the back only yields 13.3 cubic feet which is easily defeated by any car in its category. Speaking of interior, the seating design of the car is a little bit off especially for the driver because of the seating angle. But a little adjustment will bring the setting to driver's preferences.

There are also two sides of the coin in the car's engine. The basic CXL only has 252 hp coming from 3.0 liter V6. This power is only for leisure, flat land travel. For those who think they will be trudging hills and challenging road, the upgrade version of 3.6, V6 is the better option. This type of engine is even fitting for 18-inch chromed wheels as the engine yields power.

Overall, Buick has certainly produced a good car in CXL. It does have it's drawbacks but that should not discourage anyone to opt for this vehicle.
