2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V8 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
GM, in its best days, built full size sedans with a large engine and automatic better than anyone. They seem to be back on track. This car was delivered in flawless condition and does the job it is meant to do: move five or six people very comfortably. The car is quicker than most sports cars at any RPM. It is as quiet as any car. The ride is smooth without floating. On the downside, the variable power steering is too light at most speeds. It is large, but handles mountain roads better than the vast majority of cars. Gas mileage is OK, considering its size. Buy it if you want a practical, quick and comfortable car for a relatively bargain price.
Engine, comfort, six passenger space, big trunk, fit, lots of features large inside not too large outside. High quality leather. Japanese sedans beware.
Variable power steering is light (but still gives good feedback and control).
