2009 Lucerne CXL

2009 Buick Lucerne CXL 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
My first Buick after a long line of Pontiacs, Dodges, Toyotas and Fords over the years. Reason for choosing Buick was the great looks and an incredible price with GM incentives on what is a high-end luxury car. First impressions-car looks great in Black with Titanium leather interior. Smart lines all around outside and inside, elegant and quietly stating luxury. Strong 3.9L V6 engine coupled with a capable 4 speed transmission. This is a luxury car not a sports car and tuned accordingly for strong performance but not "burning rubber off the line" or "cornering at 75mph". The inside is beautiful with no gimmicky controls- logical and within reach engineered for elegance. I love this car!
Interior comforts; looks; and build quality; strong engine/transmission combo; smooth and comfortable ride; internally and externally looks great - constantly getting compliments on the car. Interior controls are designed cleanly and logically, placed appropriately within reach everywhere.
18" wheels, fog lights, and dual exhaust should be standard equipment on a car in this segment and price bracket. The 3.9L V6 although capable, is a gas guzzler and does not get any better with use-GM has done a lousy job of finding a competent replacement for the 3800 in the 3.5L, 3.6L and 3.9L
