2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Will get 30+ MPG if driven 55-60 MPH (for the tank this car is, this is phenomenal). Gets 26 MPG 80/20 mix (highway/city), speeds up to 80 MPH and spirited. Proven engine. Absolutely smooth and quiet. New tires vibrate at certain speeds for 1200 miles (and then 1200 more when rotated). Horrendous blind spots. Great road car, crummy to drive in the city. Powerful on the highway. Awful seats; extremely sore after driving car (and I'm not old). Interior materials very cheap, nasty seat fabric. Ergonomics are bad. No telescopic steering wheel. Passenger seat rattles. Driver seat plastic cracked off. Would I buy it again? No. Tired of quirks. Probably last GM I buy.


Favorite Features

Huge. Smooth. Quiet. Engine. Lots of airbags. Gorgeous body.


Suggested Improvements

Attention to minor details and ergonomics. Attention to quality of all materials. I was rather hard on this review as I absolutely love the looks of this car and love GM sedans, and only have owned such. But this one proved why people "go foreign". Can't wait.

I wanted a large car with a soft confy ride on all roads. Glad I bought this car. Tons of room, seating for Fit and finish is great. I had a Lexus rice burner and truly prefer the Buick Lucerne Bigger and better


Favorite Features

Dashboard, grille, soft ride


Suggested Improvements

Please don't change, love it just the way it is

2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall the car is good but there are some concerns. When I drive beyond 50 mph the car starts to fishtail; the steering increases in play and is not as responsive. The car lacks basic performance and sounds like the transmission struggles when accelerating. The car is very comfortable and smooth but this should not be at the expense of basic performance.

2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have only had the car for two weeks and absolutly love it. It has great comfort and plenty of power for me. I traded in a Lincoln town car and couldn't be happier. I would advise anyone to test drive this car if your looking for comfort and safety.


Favorite Features

Stereo six disc changer. Auto lights and mirrors. Ride and power. 3800


Suggested Improvements

Locking gas door

2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, I am happy with this car. However, the fuel gauge does not give me accurate readings. If I start the car on an unlevel surface the gauge will not give me an accurate reading. Depending on whether the car is on an incline/decline the gauge will give me a higher/lower reading (off by a 1/4 reading) than what is in the tank. According to Buick, this is normal and it may take up to 10 miles of driving for the gauge to correct itself and give me an accurate reading. This makes no sense at all. I am not pleased.


Suggested Improvements

When I start the car, I expect all the gauges to give me an accurate reading.

2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My third Buick, previous two were LeSabres. This is by far the best, a smooth quite ride. The 3.8 V6 has plenty of power for me.


Favorite Features

Comfort, quietness and ride. Excellent gas mileage. The 3.8 V6 is an excellent engine.


Suggested Improvements

Put daytime lights on in the instrument cluster. The recessed cluster makes it hard to read, especially if wearing sun glasses.

Review

We've only had the car a couple weeks but are very happy with it so far. Rides smooth and quiet and gets better mileage than my V-6 Chevy Malibu. It feels very solid on the road. Like a friend of mine said when he saw it, "that car screams road trip!"


Favorite Features

Quiet and smooth.


Suggested Improvements

The arms on the trunk hit luggage when it's closed, unlike the trunk mechanism on the Century we traded in.
