The Down Side of Safety Equipment
By Mike on


2009 Buick Lucerne CXL Special Edition 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


In general, we like the car. It has good safety ratings, but some of this safety comes from thicker roof pillars and side and curtain air bags. The side and rear window size has also been reduced compared to older cars, probably for styling purposes. The result is reduction in safety due to big blind spots, especially at both the front and back of the door pillars. Unlke the car we replaced, the front mirrors don't have adequate range of motion to see into the side blind spots . Buick has side blind zone alert avaialble as an option. We don't have it, but would not buy this car again without it. The design of this and other modern cars makes this type of system almost a necessity.

Best Features

Satellite radio, heated memory seats, quiet, good ride, good leg room, excellent build quality

Worst Features

It is a little sluggish which might be improved with a 6 speed transmission, better visablity and ease of entry, number the speedometer every 10 MPH instead of every 20 MPH. Make fog lights and dual exhaust outlets standard to please the crowd that really wanted another Bonneville.
