I bought the Lucerne CXS after shopping higher end cars (Mercedes, Jag) and feel that I got a better car for about half the price. The NorthStar V8 engine is smooth and has more power than you could ever need. I get 19mpg town/26mpg hwy. The magnetic ride control suspension and 18" wheels make for tight, sporty handling around town and a smooth, sure footed ride on the Interstate. The interior is incredibly quiet, well laid out, and the materials are soft. The leather bucket seats are the most comfortable seats I've ever been in and between the seat adjustments and tilt/telescoping steering wheel the car is able to be adjusted to comfortably accommodate both me, I'm 6'1", and my wife, 5'3".
Looks, power, handling, comfort, safety features and value were the key ingredients that made me choose the Lucerne CXS, and I would do it all over again.
Lighter colored instrument face for the speedometer. But it's only a minor issue for me since I travel the speed of other traffic on the road.
