We purchased our Buick Lucerne on May 10th. The Buick Lucerne with the 3800 V6 Series III engine was the best choice for our needs. In June we made a 2,035 mile trip to North Carolina. We enjoyed a most confortable ride, it was quiet and with the added secure feeling provided by the OnStar system. Today fuel economy is important and on 1,379 mile of mostly Interstate we averaged 30.2 MPG, and on 656 miles of rurual travel we averaged 27.4 MPG. I was pleased with this performance on our first road trip. The Lucerne is definitely in the class with the Avalon and Chrysler 300.
The excellent ride that comes from the same platforms as the Cadillac DTS. The improved technology of the driver information center and the OnStar system. Also the improved collision saftey enhanced by OnStar. And, the extended warranty, 4 year 50,000 and 5 year 100,000. This all adds value.
