What I have to say about the 2013 Lacrosse: When it was redesigned back in 2010, it got all of the headlines in the automotive industry. Now in its 2013 model year its actually one of the most underrated cars. The cabin on the inside of the Lacrosse is where it stands out and there's is so much attention to detail and the technology in the car is great with a Pandora and Sticher radio interface. The control layout is cluttered, however it has very great ergonomics. The Lacrosse also has a very nice subdue and quiet ride, however there is some blindspot the backup camera does help and you can get a Blind Spot Monitoring system. All in all great car from Buick.

2013 Buick Verano Turbo Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/verano/2013/ The Buick Verano is a compact entry-level luxury sedan that debuted in 2012. Well now we have the turbo model which has a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder Ecotec engine that makes 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque. Essentially this turbo is a trim upgrade from the top level Verano. There are 2 transmission choices: a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. Fuel economy checks in at 20 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. The Buick Verano with the Premium Group Package which includes the Ecotec turbo engine has a base price of $29,990.
The 2013 Buick Verano turbo has a 0-60 MPH time of 6.2 seconds. The car is very responsive and has a very smooth power delivery. As a comparison, the closest vehicle in this segment would have to be the Acura ILX Sport which cost more and has a less powerful engine. The Buick Verano has a very nice luxury interior on the inside while the outside styling is better than any other car in this segment.
The compact luxury segment seems to be growing as is evident with the new cars to this segment like the Acura ILX. The Verano is evidence that Buick is actually beating Acura at their own game.

Buick LaCrosse Reviews - Buick LaCrosse Luxury Car of the Year
Buick LaCrosse reviews are in. MI Auto Times has reviewed the best luxury cars available and awarded one as our Luxury Car of the Year, the 2012 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist.
We're not the only ones who've noticed Buick LaCrosse reviews are positive this year, as many other automotive industry analysts, writers and organizations are giving the LaCrosse the recognition this amply equipped luxury vehicle deserves:
• U.S. News & Rankings named the 2012 Buick LaCrosse number one in affordable large cars
• Consumers Digest and Consumer Guide Automotive both named the LaCrosse a Best Buy
• The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program gave the Buick LaCrosse a 5-star safety rating for both overall frontal crash and overall side crash tests
• The Detroit News has selected the Buick LaCrosse as Car of the Year
• And now MI Auto Times has chosen the 2012 Buick LaCrosse as our Luxury Car of the Year
In reading Buick LaCrosse reviews it's easy to see what makes the Buick LaCrosse such an innovative and industry-changing vehicle is its beautiful design, spacious interior and most notably its mild hybrid system called eAssist. This fuel-saving technology gives LaCrosse drivers 25 miles-per-gallon city and 36 miles-per-gallon highway, which is a significant achievement for a large luxury sedan.
This combination of luxury and fuel economy means that having eAssist is not only a win-win situation, but one that will pay you handsomely down the road when it comes to return on investment.
The amount of money you'd need to spend on other full-hybrid luxury vehicles at purchase and the amount of time it would take you to earn back your initial investment pales in comparison to what the Buick LaCrosse with eAssist gives you from day one.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Dodge Dart and Buick Verano and Chrysler 200 all have something in common. Besides the fact that they are all front wheel drive sedans they are also Starter Sedans that all can be purchased for under $30,000 USD. The Dodge Dart is the sportiest car of the three while Buick Verano is the most luxurious and the Chrysler 200 is the most powerful. So which of these three sedans is the best? We try to answer that question this unique and fun TFLcar Mashup Review.
2013 Buick Enclave First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Buick Enclave is a luxurious people mover that's been updated for a more modern and sleek design. LED daytime running lights make for the bold first statement. And optional 20 inch wheels body-colored everything and a new upscale interior separate the 2013 Buick Enclave from its sister cars the the Chevy Traverse and the GMC Acadia. We recently had a chance test drive this most popular of all Buick Models in Kentucky. Check out this first drive review that Roman filed after hustling the big Buick through the Kentucky countryside.
Buick Grand National Acceleration
Stock 118k mile engine, stronger valve springs, 3" THDP, 3k Stall 9x11 Converter, 42.5lb injectors, turboTweak Chip, 6131 turbo and built transmission. Decided to video some acceleration runs of the Buick from today. All runs were with the torque converter unlocked. It could pull harder if I locked it. Enjoy!
