This is my second Buick Lucerne and am sorry to hear it has been DC'd. It may not have all the bells and whistles as others in it's class. But, I must say overall it has and is a great car...one of the best road cars I have ever owned. I put over 25,000 miles per year at least on my work vehicles and this Lucerne is tops overall the others I have had in most all areas. Based on price/value it too is the best I have ever owned and creature comforts its tops. I don't need a car that goes 0-60 in record time...who does really! And, its not a total dog either. Thank You Buick a truly great American Automobile!

Rolling Luxury

by from Connecticut on May 26, 2011

The Lucerne is rolling luxury. The quietest car I have ever driven, with wrap around pleasure. Understated just enough to be noticed.

Classy ride

My new ride is extremely comfortable, classy, roomy and reliable. Over the years I've had my love affairs with Olds and Pontiac, but since they are gone forever, I decided the Lucerne was the closest I could come to my favorite car - the Bonneville SSE. No question about comfort and convenience. I would have liked it to have a little more pickup (like the SSE), but then the Lucerne is more luxury and less sports oriented. All in all, very happy with this car.

Great car for the price with lots of comfort

This is a great Buick. Too bad 2011 is the last year they're made. The CXL Premium is a very, very nice car. Some features are lacking, like the navigation system and the UBS port or the additional 12V ports in the console and rear. Other than that I think it is a very fine American made GM automobile.

This is the 2nd Lucerne I've bought and we love it. The ride is very special and the comfort unlike anything we've owned since a 1988 Oldsmobile 98. On Star is great, sound system is above average. Storage in console is adequate, car is quiet and the outward appearance is attractive. Our dealership in Sarasota is the best and the 2nd reason we continue owning the brand.

Negatives fuel economy (15mpg city) gas pedal not quick to respond, must press it to far down for power kinda hard to get in and out, more like a sports car Pros Otherwise the car rides very smooth, quiet, transmission is silky smooth during shifts. The sound system is nice. seats are soft!!! huge plus now a days. The interior is very nice, only slightly lower end than the cadillac. Id say its a much smarter option than a deville.

Still looking for an used 2011 Lucerne

by from Hopkinsville, KY on March 15, 2014

GM had a winner in this car, Wake up GM and put this size car back on the road. The Lacrosse does not get it, as an up scaled Malibu.

Bad choice by GM

I have been a Buick owner for several years and this car fits my needs well. I have heard several owners say the same thing "WHAT MADE A BUICK A BUICK was the ride. Now after this 2011 wears out I will have to look elsewhere for a car that will ride like this one and not cost me an arm and a leg. Still thinking maybe just maybe someone at GM will understand that not all of us are wanting a tech savy car, just one that id dependable, rides good and has size enough for me to pack it up and hit the highway. This car was it. GREAT CAR !!! Bring back a true Buick and I will be back at the showroom.

Was looking for full size with room like my old Park Avenue. I was surprised by the very quiet ride and ease of handling. 3.9L V-6 plenty of power. Sound system very nice and dash layout good. All-around visibility not the best with large head rests and high truck deck, but has "park assist" beeper to warn you. Cup holders are only two in front and inconvenient and close together. Storage between front seats inadequate and doubles as "third seat" - which was a mistake. Pull down front arm rest ok for old tapes but can not stand up a CD, but does have good room. Front bucket seats are ok but I have problem getting seat to be high enough for back part of seat. Very good mileage on last trip.

does not ride , drive,or handle as good as my 98 Riv. I wish it was a little quieter. visibility is good , controls are easy to use . the 3.9 v6 has ok power. Actual mileage is what the EPA estimate says it is. Hopefully it will give me trouble free service like my previous buick did.
