Quirks. Like every other GM.
By buickreview on


2006 Buick Lucerne CX 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Will get 30+ MPG if driven 55-60 MPH (for the tank this car is, this is phenomenal).
Gets 26 MPG 80/20 mix (highway/city), speeds up to 80 MPH and spirited.
Proven engine.
Absolutely smooth and quiet.
New tires vibrate at certain speeds for 1200 miles (and then 1200 more when rotated).
Horrendous blind spots.
Great road car, crummy to drive in the city.
Powerful on the highway.
Awful seats; extremely sore after driving car (and I'm not old).
Interior materials very cheap, nasty seat fabric.
Ergonomics are bad.
No telescopic steering wheel.
Passenger seat rattles.
Driver seat plastic cracked off.
Would I buy it again?
Tired of quirks.
Probably last GM I buy.

Best Features

Huge. Smooth. Quiet. Engine. Lots of airbags. Gorgeous body.

Worst Features

Attention to minor details and ergonomics. Attention to quality of all materials. I was rather hard on this review as I absolutely love the looks of this car and love GM sedans, and only have owned such. But this one proved why people "go foreign". Can't wait.
