Buick LaCrosse shamed with one-star crash performance, receives tweaks
Nothing dings like a one-star crash test performance from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. While the 2007 Buick LaCrosse did receive five stars for protecting the driver and passenger in a frontal crash, three stars for protecting rear passengers in a side-impact crash and four stars for resisting roll overs, it's the one-star rating it received for failing to protect the driver and front-seat passenger in side impacts that stands out. General Motors has already tweaked the door trim of the LaCrosse in an effort to improve the car's performance in this particular crash test, but the NHTSA has yet to retest this 2007.5 LaCrosse that has been in production since last month.
