Try a Buick Lucerne
By Dino on


2011 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I am in the shopping process & have driven nearly every competitor & rate the Buick Lucerne as the best in this class overall. The Avalon does not offer the Blind side warning system, chrome wheels & the trunk is much smaller than the Lucerne which costs less w/the discounts available. The Avalon is faster but the exterior look is dated & not as impressive in my opinion as the Lucerne. Ford is out of the game w/their ugly Taurus which has an almost useless trunk & such poor visibility that it is a wonder the NTSB allows it on the road? The foreign buck boards are reserved for the road & track people.

more useful options such as BLIS & larger trunk w/air suspension for loads

Yes, buy a GM if you want to lose trade in value. Compare a Buick Lucerne to a Toyota Avalon in 8 years and see which is worth more in trade-in value. Additionally, GM is also notorious for having electronic problems as well as having rattles and such when they start to reach 100,000 miles.
