Smooth and quiet ride, decent performance from V6, strong performance with V8, available seating for six.
Disappointing side-impact crash-test results, uninvolving handling for all but the Super model, noisy base V6, unsupportive seats, some low-grade interior materials, cramped rear legroom for taller passengers.

Vehicle CXL 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Review There is a problem with the lights circuity design. You can find many stories of the problems. It relates to low beams not working and also daytime lights also fail at the same time. Model years affected, 2006 thru 2009. After a massive number of complaints, Buick had no choice to post a recall notice. So even though officially recalled, Buick has not yet found a fix. The problem is where they located the relay box. It actually gets so hot that it melts down at which time you are left only with your high beams. "GM Recall N 140291 issued 11/25/2014. Title: Low Beam Headlamp". :Recall Status: Remedy Not Available as of 02/16 2015". So why aren't dealers telling potential buyers about this??
