Very Pleased Owner of an Exceptional Family Car

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

I have a 2006 Buick Lucerne. This car has leather interior. Its has lots of room in the front, back seat, and the trunk is very roomy also. I haven't had a serious problem with this car in the 4 yrs that I've had it. Everything in the car is electric. The only minor problem that I've had is the control on the passenger seat that works the lumbar part works when it wants to. The AC is very pleasing. The speaker system is even great. We even have On-star feature. Garage opener(I haven't had the luxury of using yet). It also has lots of settings, tells you when you should check pressure in tires, remaining oil life, it has a chime volume, and many more features of that sort. It make a great family (1-5 people) vehicle. Have nothing negative to say about this vehicle and if you have or plan to buy this Buick, then you should not either. ?

Great reliable Car! Great for families or Older couples!

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

We love our vehicle! It is extremely reliable, we travel for sports all over and it has never let us down! The car's self diagnostic system has always worked great for us! Let's us know the second a tire needs air or something else needs serviced. The ride itself is very smooth and drives very nicely, it's our family car and we couldn't ask for a better one. The only downfall is the factory rims corrode very easily and cause tires to leak, we knew this when buying the vehicle so we just bought some new Buick rims but a different kind and haven't had one problem!

Buick door problems during the winter season

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

So far the common problem with the Buick Lucerne are the doors. Let say you accidentally open the passenger door before the driver put the gear on park the door will not open at all. We had to bring it to the store to fix it. The doors also freeze when it is too cold. During the winter it was a huge pain to deal with because when it's frozen it won't open then when you finally get it to open it will not shut. We had to pour hot water on it to thaw. The speakers that came with isn't the greatest either eventually it started to sound like a tin can.

Buick stays on the road better.

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

Heavy so it holds the road well in all kinds of weather. Dependable only had to replace tires and brakes.. Low maintenance, comfortable. Only problem too low. Hard to get in and out for seniors and handicap people. Also due to size of battery it is under the back seat which is inconvenient if you are giving a friend a jump.

The cruise control is handy. My car gets great mileage & runs smooth.

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

The car is great on gas, it's been reliable. I've had no problems except for a few weeks my car started running hot and I ended up having to buy a new radiator. After reviewing my car online I saw that most people with the car I have had that same problem. Other than that I love my car & It runs great

Only two owners... ac works but only the driver side has heat

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

It is very dependable... my father bought brand new and I bought it from him... it has issues with cutting off... the inside is poor condition needs work done to the engine... had the both front tire rods replaced the whole rear axle also needs all four shocks replaced

high visibility open window space. Auxiliary port for mp3 or other connection.

2006 Buick Lucerne CX

Great power from a v6 engine, it's very roomy for comfort and family safety. Gets good gas mileage average 20 mile/ interstate cloth powered seats so you won't be seated on hot material. Simple to use controls and a very large trunk to take on any trips.
