The Buick LaCrosse comes in three models. The CX and the more luxurious CXL come with a 3.8-liter overhead-valve V6 rated at 200 horsepower. The performance-oriented CXS comes with 3.6-liter V6 with modern double overhead cams and variable valve timing that develops 240 horsepower. The CX ($22,935) comes with cloth upholstery and manually operated air conditioning. Standard features for all models include tilt wheel, six-way power driver’s seat, programmable power locks with remote keyless entry, power windows and mirrors, leather-wrapped shift knob, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system. All models also come standard with OnStar and a one-year subscription. A Comfort and Convenience Package for the 2006 LaCrosse CX ($1,190) includes a remote vehicle starter, programmable driver information center, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescope steering wheel with redundant audio and climate controls, cargo convenience net, security systems, and illuminated vanity mirrors.

The CXL ($25,435), features leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, power lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat, a split-folding rear bench seat, driver information center, and content theft alarm.

The CXS ($28,435) comes with thicker anti-roll bars front and rear, and 17-inch wheels and tires to go with the more powerful V6. CXS also boasts additional touches like driving lights under the front bumper.

LaCrosse CX and CXL are available with five- or six-passenger seating. Front bucket seats with a center console and leather-wrapped floor shifter come standard, but a six-passenger option moves the shifter to the steering column and substitutes a 40/20/40-split bench seat whose center cushion flips over to become a mini-console.

Safety features on all 2006 Buick LaCrosse models include anti-lock brakes (ABS) and traction control along with the required front airbags. Optional safety features include side-curtain airbags for head and torso protection, electronic stability control, rear park assist, and StabiliTrak electronic stability control.

  1. I have a stereo system my dad bought me for my car, and the instructions say that it can not be installed in some Japanese cars. I have a ’99 Mazda Protege. I was wondering if it would be able to be installed in my car. It is a SONY Xplod CXS-GT09HP Front AUX MP3 Selectable Sub Out EQ3 stage2 24bit DAC. That’s what it says on the box. Can anyone help me out?

  2. I followed every step of the instruction until i gets to click “Browse”. there is no browser window pop up at all. I even turned off my security software, what did i do wrong? please help

  3. Not a slam – not trying to start a flame war – simply stated, if you had to buy a Buick Lucerne CXS or Mercury Montego Premier, what technical concerns would you have about the reliability of these new cars? Do you have a 2006 or 2007 version of these products that you can detail your ownership experience?

  4. just wondering if my miles going to change because new cluster has more miles and am i going to get service light

  5. My wife has income in Illinois and my income is in Missouri. Which 2006 Missouri tax form should I use.

  6. For example usually the process is like insert key and remove, hit gas three times, etc. Please do not say go to dealer. I am aware of that solution thanks.

  7. I’m going to a car lot, they’re asking 10k for the car, and I’m wondering if this is a bad idea? I drove the car, it felt like a dream, and the carfax showed the car was really well maintained. What I’m asking is this a good idea, or should I keep looking?

    This is my first time buying a car, and I’m trading in my 89 chevy celebrity towards it also.

  8. I had losses from trading options in 2006 and 2007 in excess of $30,000. My current income is below my deductions for property taxes and mortgage interest for both 2006 and 2007. How can I use these losses. Hopefully future income will increase.

  9. I am planning on towing a U-haul trailer with my vehicle, the max towing capacity listed on my owner’s manual is 1000 lbs. The trailer I had in mind self-weighs 900lbs which does not allow me to carry much. I would like to know, perhaps based on experience, if the 1000 lbs limit can be compromised.

    ps. It will be a 4 thousand kilometer travel, primarily on highway setting.

  10. I’m just seeing which one you guys like more. of course the Jag is nicer all around, but for some people the price is too high. please let me know which one you guys like! (IGNORE THE PRICE) thanks!

  11. I would love to get some comfortable cloth seat covers for my Buick LaCrosse. Sorry, this is crazy–but–I thought I could really get into leather seats-I was wrong. I understand I am not the only one that feels like that. I would appreciate all the help I could get–thank you much.

  13. While driving one day, I accidentally rear-ended a silver buick. The driver and I exchanged information and we agreed not to get our insurance involved. He called me today saying he wanted $1,600 to fix his car. After I hit it, there was no dent, and a few noticeable scratches, is $1,600 too much? How much should it cost?

  14. I have a 2006 gm sierra prosport and i want to know how much horsepower a supercharger would add to it. If there are cheaper ways to add horsepower please let me know. I feel like a cold air intake would only add 10 horsepower or something. I want my truck to be faster than 295 horsepower. Its a 5.3 liter v8 vortech and already has a stock dual exhaust bc its a prosport

  15. I could have sworn back in October when I made my reservation that the Premum Class was for a Buick Lacrosse or similar. Now it is Buick Regal. Am I correct now and does anyone know why?

  18. I seem to use a quart of oil every 2,000 miles or so in my Buick. It is under warranty still, the dealer says this is normal. I have had other cars that didn’t use a drop of oil?
