2006 Buick LucerneVisitor, Boulder, CO, December 27, 2014 15:22I will never buy a Buick ever again. General Motors knew problems with these cars never put on a recall I have a 2006 Buick Lucerne its been nothing but problems with doors not closing properly and engine has tons of issues my car is low mileage (98,000 miles) burns oil like crazy took into shop no oil left into engine because of faulty pre cats I am looking into a salvage engine. The brakes aren't good have replaced 3 sets already so sick of this piece of junk want to get out of this money pit. Bought used with 32000 miles 4 years ago now its a lemon time push over cliff I like elegance styling but characteristics a very unreliable car I also got 6 wheel bearings replaced. Body isn't good the whole front bumper has come apart I don't drive hard or abuse vehicles seems like this car was in a Crash Test Program even transmission slips into 2nd gear now wouldn't go into drive had me stopped right in middle of my driveway had a neighbor help push it back into driveway until call for somebody help me I've spent $2345 on a new transmission now seems problem happening again because feel some hard jerking I absolutely hate this car. First and last Buick hopefully find an auto dealer take in my trade so get out of this junk.

2006 Buick LucerneVisitor, O'Fallon, MO, November 07, 2011 16:55I have owned 2 Buicks, the first was a LeSabre, at 30 thousand miles the Transmission just came apart at 30 mph with my wife driving. I had to pay the dealer to replace it. I sold it & purchased a 2006 Lucerne (new), now at 37701 miles the transmission it it did the same thing, came apart, only this time I was on the highway at 65 mph. Since the car was out of warrenty, the dealer would not repair it. I found that the factory had put out a bulletin about the transmission having problems. I reported this to the dealer, and was told they received the notice, but didn't pass it on to the customers. Their customer service is "If it breaks under warrenty they would fix it, but if they waited it out, then the customer would pay for the work!" After 2 Buick Quality issues, I WOULD NEVER BUY A BUICK OR GM CAR AGAIN!
