2006 Buick Lucerne Reviews
We bought in 2006 and it's the best car we've ever owned! We love it still today!
Purchased new - currently, 5yr old w/57k miles - @ 1k miles driver door handle broke, warranty - @ 48k front motor mount replaced, warranty - @ 57k miles replaced front wheel bearing x1 and water pump - (had to replace coolant in reservoir every 3 to 4k miles, could not find any in oil or transmission or from rear exhaust as vapor - small amount leaking from water pump weep hole only when running, engine heat vaporized and never leaked on ground. Had to replace one taillight bulb, access is over engineered.
I 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!
