The Buick LaCrosse came under fire when it was introduced because the name was slang for masturbation in Canada. But does that make it a bad car?

The LaCrosse's aim is to bring in younger buyers than the very, very old folks that went to buy the Century, the car that it replaced.

And how could they not buy it?! It has wood grain inside! A Euro-design, hell, just look at those sparkly Mercedes tail lights! Tight character lines! Optional 17-inch wheels!

It has literally almost most things.

The LaCrosse could even be had with a bench seat, for those young folks that like to get frisky in the front seat, obviously.


From the front, it kind of looks like a confused fish, but the snappy music and enthusiasm in this review have convinced me that the LaCrosse is probably ok.
