The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
An ancient but roomy design and performance that trails nearly every other new car means that most people will be better off looking elsewhere. A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal.
