If a quiet comfortable ride is priority one, Lucerne CX will exceed expectations! Built on the same platform as Cadillac DTS it isolates the driver from minor road problems, while Avy & Azera do not! The Buick engineers have found the perfect balance between ride comfort and control in the CX model. For those who favor control over comfort the CXL has 17" tires and a firmer suspension yet delivers a great ride that is not harsh. Auto Level is standard(all models) and enhances the ride with any kind of load. The engine and transmission smootly deliver performance as needed,quietly and without a hint of the hesitation mentioned in other new cars. Highway mileage is 30 MPG
Terrific ride, quiet interior. XM Radio. Cloth seats(no need to cool them in summer or heat them in winter!) Exterior styling
Seat width is inadequate. They start at 20" in front but taper to 18" at the rear. I am more comfortable in the Mid-size Lacrosse (20" wide front and back.) The Buick Flagship(Lucerne) should have wider and more comfortable seats. Stabili Trac should be made available on all models.
