Like many previous Buicks, the Lucerne's primary attributes are its cushy ride, along with a roomy and mostly quiet interior. While the model also has a steadier ride and better fit and finish than the LeSabre and Park Avenue models it replaced, the Buick didn't rival the best competition. Its 197-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 engine is responsive, but sounds coarse and doesn't have outstanding acceleration or fuel economy.

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

"It came with some nice standard features which made it a good value at the time purchase."

Herbert M., NJ (2007 Buick Lucerne)

"This car has very cheaply made interior and exterior trim. Much of the interior trim has small chunks broken, etc. For example the trim on the seats, the rear ac ducts, seat belt covers, etc. Also this car has a known problem with front struts that are cheaply made and fail very early. The exterior trim (eg, door handles, etc) are plastic and break easily. I would expect much better from a Buick. GM has really cheaped out on this car."

"Cheap GM parts, all 4 wheel bearings have been replaced (car has 137K), water pump failed, had to replace steering box, tie rod ends, bushings, rim developed crack Overall, this car is what I would call a LEMON"

Anonymous, ON (2007 Buick Lucerne)

"It's been a relatively good car. My husband was the driving force behind this choice. He can no longer see well, so I'm doing the driving. When the time comes, I'm afraid I would choose a different make of car. Mainly because I find the seats VERY uncomfortable on long drives."
