A car so good that I almost feel guilty driving it by DJ - Antioch, CA on 10/22/2012. Trim: 2007 Buick Lucerne CXL V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: American luxury without the high price tag (Bought used for 13.5k w/ only 52k miles... I thank the grandma/pa who took good care of her), Great smooth ride, outstanding fit and finish inside and out, good fuel economy for a car this size, takes regular gas (praise glory), reliable as taxes and death.
Cons: Large turning radius, slightly underpowered v6 but plenty fast enough to get the job done, standard stereo system could fill the cabin better, and the brakes could be slightly larger for a vehicle of this size. There really isn't anything much to complain about. The things that I've mentioned aren't even "Cons" per se. More like minor observations. Once you drive it, you'll see each of the things I just mentioned is sort of nit picking.
Overall review: This is the best car I've ever owned and I've payed plenty more for my other cars in the past. Never again. I'm just sad that they're discontinuing the model in 2012. Trust me, in five years when my current model is getting long in the tooth, I'll be looking for those 2012 models and picking another one up. If I had a dollar for every time I give someone a ride and they take that initial look around the cabin and ask me "This is a Buick?"... heck.. I would be a hundred-aire by now. People love it. The only maintenance that I've had to worry about is making sure I get it in for it's oil changes on time. That's it. All the extras are nicely laid out and easy to use. Love the remote start on those cold mornings. OnStar when I'm lost. Heated steering wheel with heated and cooled seats. XM radio. Stiched leather accents in the seats and doors. You get all of this for somewhere in the neighborhood of 15k for a used one today. Or you can spend that same 15k on a base Chevy Sonic. You choose.
