    2008 Buick Lucerne - CXL

    Pros: quiet

    Cons: brakes are weak

    Advice: Spend the extra $$$'s and upgrade to the CXS with the Northstar

    The V6 is surprisingly peppy, although it does sound a bit throaty. The quiet cabin is the most remarkable feature of this car. The materials and fit and finish also boast an air of quality ironically different from Buick's recent past. Gas mileage on the V6 is impressive as I have a habit of always driving in a hurry and I consistently achieve around 19 MPG with city driving, which, of a car this size, is impressive. Many compact models that are half the size offer comparative performance in this arena.

    2006 Buick Lucerne - CXL V6

    Pros: Heated seats

    Cons: Design of car, very poor visibility of the road

    Advice: Keep looking!

    Visibility limited in side windows, hard to see oncoming traffic--visibility VERY limited in tiny rear window. Difficult to get in and out, I am used to the LeSabre which I love. I hit a pothole, blew the tire, and then discovered that the tires are the bottom of the line, low quality junk; costed $700 to replace the rim. Guzzles gas like there is no tomorrow. No room for a full size spare tire in the trunk. Cannot pop the trunk from the driver's seat, have to go into the glove box. No coin holders in console. I have been buying Buicks for 20 years, but this was my last.

    2006 Buick Lucerne - CXL V8

    Pros: The seats. They fit me perfectly.

    Cons: The angle of the rear window restricts visibility a bit.

    Advice: If you're in the market for a full-size car, this one is well worth a look. Consider the V-8 models. The gas mileage penalty isn't as much as you'd think, and the performance from the milkshake-smooth Northstar V-8 more than makes up for it.

    My Lucerne is the CXL V-8. I spend a lot of time in the car and this one is quiet and comfortable. Gas mileage has been a pleasant surprise, averaging 24.9 mpg in mostly highway driving. At 6' 3', I find the seats extraordinarily comfortable and the trunk space very adequate. Mine is equipped with the Harman-Kardon sound system, and this feature makes long trips more pleasant. Build quality is very good.

    2006 Buick Lucerne - CXL V6

    Pros: THE HEATED SEATS

    Cons: NONE

    Advice: JUST GIVE THIS CAR A TRY!

    AN EXTREMELY QUIET RIDE. I'M IN LOVE WITH THE SMOOTH RIDE AND FEEL OF THE CAR. I'VE RECEIVED MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THE APPEARANCE. THIS CAR IS NOT ADVERTISED WELL AND NOT ENOUGH.

    2006 Buick Lucerne - CXS

    Pros: cooled seats

    Cons: turning radius

    Advice: Over all; an excellent vehicle

    I have the CXS and love it! Buick found a 'young' buyer with me.
