As I mentioned in The New (and Younger) Buick, Equipped with 4G and OnStar, our family had the privilege of getting to review the 2015 Buick LaCrosse over Labor Day Weekend.
I had my wife take notes of the comments our family made during the trip about the vehicle.
She personally was impressed that the car was even roomier on the inside, compared to how it looks from the outside.
And speaking of the outside, everyone we encountered over Labor Day Weekend all made the same comment: “Wow, what a beautiful car!”
Perhaps I was most impressed by how quiet the LaCrosse is, despite its power (3.6 L, SIDI V6).
Seriously, I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t an electric car. But looking back to my most recent trip to GM’s headquarters, I remember them mentioning how much attention and effort they put into making sure that Buicks are notably quiet- sort of like a trademark.
But of course I also loved having not only 4G Wi-FI in the vehicle, which enabled my son to learn about his ABC’s on my wife’s Kindle for a good amount of the trip, but also the access to OnStar.
I love OnStar! I really appreciate being able to have an instant human helper to assist me while I’m driving. I’m not the best multi-tasker, so having OnStar is extremely helpful to me.
From here, I want to finish up by doing the modern day equivalent of how people use to share photos with captions written on the back, to tell you about their trips.
We left our house in Nashville on Saturday morning and begin our journey. The shot of the highway above was where Jack proclaimed, “I see Lake Tahoe!” (We went there earlier this summer.)
First stop: My own grandparents’ house in Chattanooga.
Next we headed to Whole Foods, using OnStar of course, to enjoy a nice plant-based lunch.
After that we made our way to my hometown on Fort Payne, Alabama; where we chilled out for a while at a Labor Day get-together.
Jack and I enjoyed discovering the awesome playground, pretending to be pirates.
For a year now, since I’ve been regularly been reviewing cars, I’ve been wanting to take Jack to Desoto Falls in Mentone, AL.
I made it work… It started raining as soon as we got there and stopped raining the moment we got back to the Buick.
Oh well, Jack loved it. Plus, it didn’t rain hard enough to mess up my camera while we took some fun pictures.
For his nap time, Jack had an interesting request…
For me to read his story to him while wearing a scary mask!
(See the full story: Dear Jack: Reading Bedtime Stories With A Scream Mask On.)
We definitely had a fun road trip in the 2015 Buick LaCrosse! Before we left, we loaded up the trunk, full of produce from my parents organic, non-GMO garden to take back to our home in Nashville.
I hope you enjoyed learning about the 2015 Buick LaCrosse! Thanks for reading this week’s car review. I wonder what we’ll be driving next?…
