Looked at many full sized cars including Avalon, Amanti and Monteray. The Lucerne trumped them all for ride quality, off the line torque, quietness, trunk space when compared to the Avalon, price and appearance. Every seam and panal is very precise and nothing is out of place. The seats are far superior to the Toyotas and on an even keel with the Amanti. The Buick also has a better warrenty than Toyota and Mercury, 6 passenger room which none of the others have and better reliabilty. Love the port holes, chrome doo moldings, grille and flashy appearance too. Have seen nearly 30 mpg on the open road too. This is Buicks and GM's best kept secret.
Quietness, room and comfort, trunk space, mileage, quality and panal fit, appearance, warrenty and price paid for car.
