This car is absolutely beautiful. I have the CSX with V8 engine. The build quality is exceptional, rivaling that of much costlier luxury sedans. The engine performance is great. Step on the gas and the Northstar wakes up. The interior is soft and supple. Materials are top notch. The ride is smooth and quiet, perhaps the quietest vehicle available. This car is a great value and great overal package. It won't disappoint, especially on the long hauls. If you like sport cars this is probably not your cup of tea. This is a luxury touring sedan and it lives up to its title.

2008 CXS Wow

This is a Cadillac at a lower price. The drive train is the same and having owned a Deville Concourse for 8 years to compare it to I must say Buick has hit the mark with this car. With 275 HP it is not over powered but it is quick enough to get you into trouble with the law. It is so smooth that you don't feel the speed. The Northstar system is reliable and world class and I am glad that Cadillac is willing to share it with Buick.

Better interior design than Cadillac

by from Kansas City on November 15, 2008

I have look at about all of the 2008 large size american sedans. The feel of this car is great. The main thing that made me buy this car was I could get it in a 6 seating 40/20/40. Lots and lots of room. This car is so quit I have had to roll down the window a bit when trying to detect a police siren. I like the interior design and exterior styling much better than the Cabillac model.

An absolute gem. Technologically, ride comfort, curb appeal, could not ask for a better car at any price. It fits our needs to a T, we could not be happier. My wife has even taken a greater deal of pride with this car than any she has ever owned. Could not recommend it higher. Would give it 10 stars if that were an option.

Compares to the Cadillac, but for much less money

This car has performed great. I bought it new the last of Feb. and took it on a 4,000 mile trip through Kansas, Colorado,and Utah. Overall averaged 26.8 mpg. So far no reliability problems. Everything's working fine. It's the quietest car I've ever owned and since I've been driving for 58 years, there have been a lot of them. I do wish they would have put a six speed automatic in the Lucerne though.

I have the six passenger CXL. I like it very much, with the exception of some minor things. The driver cup holder is awkward to reach. The instrument dials have style, but hard to read. The right dials are in deep, and very hard to read in daylight with sunglasses. All the instru;ment lights should be on whenever the ignition is on. There should be a flat area to attach a GPS. Some states don't allow a GPS on the windshield. Got 27.3 MPG on a long trip.

I drive a lot. Purchased black 2008 CXL just before Christmas 2007, and have 30,000 miles as of June. No problems and great ride on long trips with plenty of trunk space. Got the bench seats, heated & cooled: more comfortable during extended driving. Have no complaints. Gas mileage is good, but not as good as Park Avenues it replaced. Seems to average around 24 with 26-28 on trips (regular gas). Would be nice to have better dash accommodations for GPS, sunglasses etc., but no big problem.

Just love the car, that's why i bought the second one. Only draw back is that the mileage is less with '08 than it was with the '06. We went with the cloth interior rather than the leather on both because it is so much more comfortable. Everyone to ride in it says it's the most comfortable interior they have ever been in. Either front or back seats.
