Sadly, the upgraded front suspension is not available on the AWD. Strut, not the excellent Genesis 5-Link. Then add in this is the first year of a major redesign. Admittedly, I'm an old guy, but still don't know if I'm ready to accept a Buick with the side "ports", even at 75. LOL! Finally, not yet convinced Variable Cylinder Management is a good thing.

    You MAY not like the start/stop technology that you can't turn off either. Here's an interesting article to read with some information on the new Buick LaCrosse:

    You're right, though... The LaCrosse is no Genesis...

    Great article. Thanks! I wonder if the start/stop cannot be turned off, period, or reinstates itself at every new trip? I have found this to be the case on several vehicles. And of course the manufacturers are installing heavier-duty starters for this new feature? Right!

    I haven't heard any issues about starters so I imagine they've done something to beef them up - but I'm not sure what they've done. And unfortunately - you cannot turn off the feature in the LaCrosse. I don't feel it should be a deal breaker unless you've driven in a car that's had it and didn't like it...
