This sorry excuse for an automobile simply is undeserving of a comment. Go buy one if you like it so much. End of discussion.

What don’t you like about it, and what leads you to say it is a “sorry excuse for a automobile?” Sounds more like you simply have nothing resourceful, coherent or enlightening to say.

Well from what I read from an UBIASED magazine review is that while the car looks good and rides good, it's still has the typical GM plastic interior issues.
I think Once GM decided that they want to compete and use soft touch plastics and better materials then I will take a look, but I will say it is a step in the right direction, too bad the Buick name is synonymous with old people, something that I think they will never shake. They shouldn't have shut down Saturn.

GM will always have the hard plastic interior. It costs too much in tooling and part cost to have "soft touch" plastics in the cars. Consumers are unwilling to pay GM any more for these vehicles, so they must trim production costs where they can. They do it by using hard cheap plastics, huge fender gaps, cheap tire/wheel combinations, and low buck stereos.

Evidently you haven’t taken the time to research the Lacrosse as the interior is well refined with soft touch premium materials and “cheap interior plastic” is hard to find. Note to self proclaimed auto reviewers, don’t try to discuss things you don’t know anything about.

You must be talking about Toyota.

Let's worry about the 4.5 million recall that Ford just dropped.

If expectations of American cars are low enough, then even a GM POS will "exceeded expectations", if you bring in a decent German design. The recipe is to take the Opel Insignia, dumb it down some for American driving, put a Buick badge on it, and you have it...

You forgot to mention the Chinese interior design - that's right, they have the same Commies who gave the world lead painted toys and tainted pet food and medicines designing the "Lexus Killer"
hahahahahahahahaha
