2006 Buick Lucerne CXS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Bought this car for my wife. I almost only drive it on long trips. It drives and handles well, rides smoothly, is quiet. Mileage isn't bad but I usually hit between 80 and 85 pretty consistently on the long trip across Texas...dull as watching paint dry. Seats are a bit snug but I have back problems and don't experience the problem of comfort some suggest. The Northstar is a good engine but this car needs another gear and it would really fly. In 18000 or so miles we have only added gas and oil changes.

Best Features

Quiet, stereo is very good, ride, seats are comfortable, styling is good, we have appreciated the fit and finish and it is all made right here in the US.

Worst Features

Higher rear end gearing or add at least one more gear to the transmission to make the ratio a lot taller at highway speeds...this engine has plenty of power and doesn't need the gearing as low as it is.
