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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"The acceleration ride and handling of this car is fantastic even-though it will soon be 8 years old!"

Mike T., OH (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Handles very well but consumes oil"

Anonymous, MD (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"It still is quite, easy to handle and is quick when necessary."

LELAND S., IL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Doesn't seem to have the "guts" you would think from a V6. Do better with my Honda Civic."

Anonymous, MN (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"The Lucerne is a heavy car and that's why we bought it--for protection on the road against suv's & semi's. The acceleration is great and breaking is equally sufficient."

Anonymous, IL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"The car accelerates well. It also handles nicely, but does not make a tight turn. (U-turns can be difficult at intersections.)"

Anonymous, TX (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"I like everything about this car. I can't add anything to improve it."

DARLENE S., MO (2010 Buick Lucerne)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Great car for short or long trips. Seats are very comfortable, quite and good looking on the outside."

Anonymous, LA (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"The seats are difficult to get out of and not very comfortable for long trips."

RICHARD E., IL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Seats are to low. Hard to see out and get in and out of car."

BOB P., TN (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"It tends to be quite noisy requiring a louder radio volume. It is bumpy in its ride--feel every joint in the road."

Anonymous, MN (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Both the outside temperature gauge and the compass are mounted in the odometer. Under many light conditions they both are either difficult or impossible to read. They are better on the rear view mirror as they used to be."

Anonymous, IL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Difficulty entering and exiting this car. Seats very low and give the feeling of having to lower myself into car. Seems not to fit my body. Am 6' tall and weigh 184#. Bump my head getting in or out of this veichle."

JAMES T., OH (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Road noise"

Anonymous, SD (2010 Buick Lucerne)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"I love my car. I'm just sorry they don't make the Lacern any more."

DARLENE S., MO (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"everything just keeps on working great"

Anonymous, MI (2010 Buick Lucerne)

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Think the vehicle has great styling."

ROGER R., NY (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"It is a refreshing departure from the euro/sport look that every car manufacturer is now going towards, the classic styling cues, such as the ventiports, sweepspear, and waterfall grill, mixed in with the modern lines and styling is tastefully done and original. The interior is serene but not boring. The controls are extremely simple to use and read but are not lacking. The classical design of the interior is well built and uses high quality materials. The only complaints I have is that, thrown"

DALLAS M., SK (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"A beautiful car inside and out."

Anonymous, LA (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"this car is attractive, easy to clean and continues to be an eye catcher."

LELAND S., IL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Like the look..."

Anonymous, MI (2010 Buick Lucerne)

"Has maintained a stylish & contemporary look."

JAMES H., FL (2010 Buick Lucerne)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
