Traded a Buick Lucerne during the 4 dollar gas crisis last summer. Even though it is now $2.50 it was still worth it. The car delivers the promised mileage plus if you drive it right. Accelerate slowly, stay at 70 or below and you will get 45-50mpg. On a recent trip with a tail wind and flat road we got 53mpg. On a recent 1,500 mile drive I was just as comfortable in the Civic as I would have been in the Lucerne
Mileage, Mileage & dependability.
Better sound proofing of the wheel wells. Live on a gravel road and it is very noisy listening to all the rocks.
