one year ago I bought a used 2008 Lucerne and was so pleased with it, It's ubiquitous 3.8 litre engine provides all the power one could want unless they are a "drag racer" and the car handles beautifully. I have always gotten 30-35 MPG at the 55-65 miles per hour on the high way and 20-24 mpg in local driving which amazes me in so big a car.then the Lucerne is the most satisfactory one I have ever owned.
This 2008 Lucerne is nickel-and-diming me to death.
With fewer than 35,000 miles, the driver's door handle fell off, the EGR valve went south, struts that hold the hood open failed, windshield washer fluid sensor broke, brake lights will not go off, and the trunk leaks.
Though the ride is comfortable, I am afraid to pass another vehicle for lack of power.
With so many failing adjuncts, I may have to buy foreign.
And I always wanted a Cadillac.
GM didn't help with any of these fixes.
