This answer was rated:

where is the thermostat located on the 2005 buick lacrosse cxs? How much is the replacement part? is it possible to do the work yourself? I was quoted $400 to have the work done by a dealership. Does this sound reasonable?
what is the engine size on your vehicle, 3.8L or 3.6L
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
3.6L

The thermostat on you engine are in a bad spot and very hard to get to. it's service with it's housing as one. the labor is about 2.5 hr. the part is about $65 plus coolant.

$400 is a bit high. $280-300 is max.

I would not recommend that you do this. it's really hard to get to. below is a picture of the location.
