A Nice Ride! Comfortable, Quiet, Dependable — Excellant highway mileage. 26 around town. Roomy, quiet, comfortable. Standard 3.8 litre has lots of get up and go. The car only requires regular oil changes. Never needs repairs. Lots of trunk space. Automatic rear load leveling. Great 4 year bumper to bumper warranty. Love this car.

Luxury Ride At Moderate Cost — Above average price, compared to well above average comfort and convenience features and excellent fuel economy. I recommend this sort of Buick to any family driver. The standard 3.8 liter V6 engine and OD transmission are terrific in day to day driving.

Great Car — I was looking for an economical, luxurious, dependable, stylish car and found it with the Buick Lucerne CXL. The V6 has plenty of power and good mileage for longer trips. The only complaint I have is the driver's seat and the other seats, for that matter, are built for smaller people than my wife and me. There is little room to maneuver once you sit and strap in with a seat belt. That gets a little old on a 600+ trip. Overall, a good family car, a great addition to my little 'fleet'.

Pros

low price right now12-08... a great deal and roomy car.  strong american car w/ good mpg.

Cons

copy cat tail.  not very accessible trunk.. only pass-thru in backseat.

3,355

Buick Runs As Good As Its Swiss Title. — i reallly did not like the tail... it reminds me of a vw phaeton. the new series III 3800 is much better. the firewall is further back from the 2-4-6 sparkplug bank. it is much easier to work on. props on that.

Liked My Lesabre Better By Paul_W1

It's an uninspiring boat, a bulky, lumbering, gas guzzling monster, with a grille that looks like a cow-catcher. Rear visibility is so bad, I still can't park the darn thing. It's a poor replacement f... Read More

Powerfull Plush Car That Is Comfortable On Long Trips But Is'nt A Gas Sipper. By jgerman

Great Car So Far, Only 300 Miles In 3 Weeks By dstefun

It's a Buick, need I say more? Clean lines, quiet, powerful, fun to drive. But I wish they still offered a supercharger for a quicker response. Read More
