I just purchased the Lucerne and it is a great car. I test drove all the different models and the CXS is not even comparible to the others. Its drive far surpasses the lower models and drives like a dream. The V-8 is not going to beat up the muscle cars, but it's not supposted to either. It is very smooth and runs great.
V-8. The drive is very smooth. The doors close without hardly a sound. The hood closes with not much noise. It's a very quiet car
