  1. I currently lease a 2012 La crosse sedan 6 clylinder.The major complaint i have are the over size trunk hinges that look attractive but are not functional and restrict trunk space in order to accomplish a pretty designed trunk hinge .. It is .Not very practical.. My Question is simple .Has there been a redesign with the trunk Hinge for the 2014 Lacrosse sedan model ? or is it the same design that they have used since the release of the 2010 Lacrosse….Its not to smart to achieve style at the expense of functionality,especially when you can accomplish both… Thankyou and i look forward to your resonse..

    Best,
    Bob Peterson
