Lead sled with far from ideal ergonomics.

2008 Buick Lucerne CXL Special Edition

The auto lock feature is terrible as far as user friendly goes. It leaves all doors locked except the driver when exiting the vehicle. When you go to get your groceries out of the back seat the door will be locked. It also has constant problems with the tire pressure sensors. When it gets cold they don't work properly.
