- quiet/ comfortable
- Gas gauge does not work properly / need to illunuminate dash lights during daytime driving.
Fuel gauge has a design flaw. When starting engine and car is not level, gauge gives a false reading. If starting on incline, gauge reads 1/4 tank higher than whats in tank. If starting on decline, gauge reads 1/4 tank lower than whats in tank. According to Buick this is normal and it may take up to 10 miles of driving before gauge corrects itself and gives accurate reading. However -according to Buick- if I want to start with an accurate reading I should find a level spot and restart the engine. The mechanic told this to me with a straight face. 90 percent of my driving is under 5 miles that means 90 percent of the time my fuel gauge is incorrect and if I want an accurate reading, 90 percent of the time I have to find a level spot and restart the engine. Needless to say this is the most ridiculous situation I have ever heard. I have contacted Buick and they are investigating this issue....read morehide

- Quiet, comfortable, easy controls for accessories, V-6 MPG very good, trip/fuel use computer
- too comfortable, too quiet, leather would be easier to clean
Achieved 29 MPG on a road trip of some city and mostly highway miles. The car cruised quietly at 70+ mph and still had enough power to pass at freeway speeds. I could talk with my passengers without having to shout above the road noise and while listening to soft music. The cruise control was responsive to the roads' up and downs....read morehide

- Quiet interior and solid interior with Lexus type appointments. Has great handling and good pickup.
- Annoying slight vibration and rumble for a few seconds when car starts moving.
Great car that looks and rides like a Lexus for under $30,000! Interior is as well done and solid as my Honda Accord. Controls are just right, not too many and are simple to use. Drove a Lucerne as a rental for a business trip. As such I assume this is the lowest model of the Lucerne and I liked it ; imagine what the highest model is like!
Seats are among the most supportive and comfortable for long distant driving. Woodlike trim is the best I've seen in a GM car; they tend to look too plastic like.
Only drawback is an annoying vibration and noise for a few seconds when the car starts from a stop and a relatively low gas mileage compared to my Honda and other cars like it....read morehide

- Great car, extremely elegant, highly recommended
- For older drivers
I would highly recommend the Buick Lucerne. I have test driven it and think that it is an outstanding car - drives very smooth, is very comfortable, sleek and elegant design. I do not own the car (not on sale yet), but I can tell you that I'm going to buy one as soon as they are on the market!

- excellent driving characteristics - very quiet - Best buy on the road for money & four year warranty
- Leather N/A on CX model
Unbelievable car for $27K - Very well equipped & nicely apointed including luggage area. Roomy interior with easy to reach switches & controls. Very happy Buick choose to stick w/front wheel drive instead of relenting to the foolish cry for rear wheel - What a nice steering vehicle on a windy day.
