Buick Lucerne

Buick Lucerne

About Buick Lucerne

Although not quite an image breaker like the legendary Grand National, the Lucerne, along with its new stable mates the Regal and LaCrosse, is nevertheless changing people's mind about the Buick brand. Gone from the company flagship is the stereotypical cushy ride, soft seats and numb steering, replaced by a Cadillac-derived chassis outfitted with two potent engine options and a sophisticated sense of style. Although classified as a "near-luxury" car, the Lucerne's combination of affordable pricing and rich content offers those considering a Lincoln, Acura or Volvo a legitimate alternative with some serious cost savings.

"This is likely the only GM vehicle that I would buy other than a truck. The quality of the Lucerne matches the quality of the quality foreign name vehicles. I remember the days of buying a GM vehicle and returning several times for service to get it right. No longer the case with the Lucerne. I am really enjoying it and it is still like new."

"Great car in almost every respect. Just a bit too big for us, but is very enjoyable to drive and better than expected fuel economy. Every time I drive another car and come back to it, I marvel at how much better the suspension is (on the V8 model) than any other car."

"HAVE ALWAYS PURCHASED TOYOTA FOR LAST TWENTY YEARS. 2006 MODEL OF TOYOTA AVOLONA WAS NOT APPEALING. WE PURCHASED THE LUCERNE. MILEAGE NOT AS GOOD AND VISIBLITY BLIND SPOTS FOR THE DRIVERIN THE LUCRENE MORE SO THAN THE AVOLONA. AS WELL AS VISIBLITY IN BACKING. EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THE SAME. VERY IMPRESSIVE LOOKING VEHICLE. LOTS OF COMMENTS FROM OTHER DRIVERS. WOULD BUY ANOTHER ESPECIALLY IF THEY CAN GET THE MILEAGE PER GALLON UP."
