2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I rated this car shortly after my purchase, and was optomistic about it. Now that I've taken it on a 3k trip, I have some opinion changes. While driving it through mountains at 75 mph, I found myself fighting the wheel. This car did not handle well on curves. I felt unsafe driving it. I also noticed that the turning radius is forever. I have trouble pulling into parking spaces because it does not turn sharply enough. It does have enough power but just handles poorly. The cruise feature is the best but I have turned off every other feature because of poor design. Exit/entry feature was designed by a chimp. Seat retracts on exit, but not on entry. If you dont lock this car it stays retracted.
The ability to turn of the poorly designed features.
Auto heat/cool needs to be automatic air or heat. Fix exit/entry. Seat heater indicators cant be seen in daytime. Arms on trunk lid consume too much space. Shorten turn radius. Don't make me pay for free Onstar. (equipment)
