Clean, slick, family vehicle

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

Comfortable, good on gas, big trunk, great family vehicle. Looks nice on the inside and out. My husband works on the car when needed and says that everything is easy to get to, have a lot of space to work. The leather seats are easy to clean, has a lot of options when it comes to the radio and speakers, comes with CD player. Even has charging ports under both front seats. Easy to connect with Bluetooth devices

This car has 265,000 miles on it!

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

I love driving this car. It does have some features that you may not expect because it is a 2006. My car has 265,000 miles on it. I bought it from my mom who has driven it for the last 8 years and drove over 100 miles a day commute for about 4 years. Air works great still, we have taken care of interior. It has had to have transmission replaced a couple years ago, but that has been only major issue.

Has a self starter button perfect for the cold weather and the hot weather.

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

My car is very nice it's a beast in the snow I've had it for 2 winters never got stuck. It starts every morning and it has a self starting function. Heated seats as well as power everything. I love my car.I have replaced both ball joints as well as the struts. Very easy to do. I replaced all 4 brake pads. As well as 1 headlight the headlight was the hardest thing to do on the hole car.

Wheel balance. I have had trouble with keeping my wheels balanced on this car.

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

The only thing I don't like about my Buick. Is the turning ratios. It gets great gas mileage and it has been very reliable. I have own 3 Buicks. I would say that they are comfortable and very trustworthy. The headlights are a pain to change and you have to take it to a dealer to get it done. I use to be able to change my own bulbs. Now it is $40 or more for a $5 Bulb.

Driving a Buick Lucerne daily

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

This Buick is a very sound vehicle. This vehicle drives well and has been very reliable for my family. I have not had to put very much repair work into this vehicle since we have had it, I believe that we have only had to repair the alternator one time and have had no other repairs to do since owning this vehicle

- Trent Z

The only thing I like is the inside of the car and the color.

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

The engine and motor has had to have work. One day my fiance drove the car from work and it started smoking and sounded like it was flying. The struts and tires have had to be replaced several time due the struts. Very wide turning vehicle and very difficult to park.

- Shona S

Smooth solid ride, very reliable

2006 Buick Lucerne CXL

Good car and very reliable. A few things have broken inside but nothing that can be fixed. The Buick is great on gas and has a remote start that's very reliable. It has high mileage but still runs great. The lights at night are very bright and so are the high beams.
