I am thinking of purchasing a 2006 Buick LaCrosse. I am 85 years of age and need a good reliable car. I have read about lots of problems and am not sure now about purchasing one.
ANY car that’s 12 years old could have problems. At this point the maintenance history is far more important than the brand of car. Spend $100 and have any prospective car looked at by your independent mechanic for problems before you purchase it.
Do you not have a friend or family member that can help you. Also when looking at used vehicles as Mr. Pyro says an inspection will give you a better chance of a decent vehicle ( not a guarantee of no problems ) . And you should not get locked in on one brand and if reports make you worry just scratch it off the list.
