Car Review: 2006 Buick Lucerne
October 20, 2016, 06:44 AM
Original owners of our 06 CXL. In 9 years we've replaced alternator-battery-water pump-thermostat-normal oil changes-tail light bulb and third set of tires with 118K miles. Just replaced wheel hubs (preventive), rotors and brakes then drove 2500 miles round trip to Florida with the odometer starting at 115K. Only vehicle problem that occurred on the trip was a anti-sway bar link broke due to the road salt used in home state of New Jersey. Two years ago brakes failed due to rusted brake line also caused by the road salt.
Only "major" motor work was at about 100K had the intake gasket replaced due to leak. Had a code that came on a year ago indicating a tranny problem, shop quoted $1600 to rebuild, our mechanic did some research and found that it was a dirty sensor connection, cleaned it no charge, no code again.
We are VERY happy with our vehicle
