Washington Post

a roomy, spacious interior
Kelley Blue Book

The 2008 Buick Lucerne features the marque's traditional spaciousness and interior quality.

ConsumerGuide remarks that in the Buick Lucerne, "headroom and legroom are ample...the seats are comfortable and supportive, with the available cooling feature a pleasant surprise." According to Cars.com, "seating for either five or six occupants is available," depending on the style of front seat. Edmunds reports that "the Buick Lucerne comes standard with seats for five, but a split front bench seat can be ordered on the lower-level CX and CXL for six-passenger capacity...room is abundant in any position, though seat comfort is only average."

Cars.com states "the trunk holds 17 cubic feet of cargo." There are some faults however; ConsumerGuide notes that Buick Lucerne "[trunk] lid hinges intrude into the cargo area," and a "small rear-seat pass-through is a poor substitute for folding seatbacks." Meanwhile, the Lucerne’s "interior storage is subpar due to a small glovebox and door map pockets."

Complaints about interior materials and construction surface in reviews researched by TheCarConnection.com. Washington Post asserts "ergonomic common sense rules the interior." However, this luxurious interior is marred by the use of cheap plastics: ConsumerGuide contends that "a few lightweight plastic panels seem out of place given Lucerne's pricing," while Edmunds comments that "there are still a few low-grade plastic pieces thrown into the mix, and fit and finish needs improvement."

There are virtually no complaints about the Lucerne’s noise levels. Autoblog reports that all 2008 Buick Lucerne models are "are built with an exclusive engineering process called QuietTuning to reduce, block and absorb noise from entering the interior"; ConsumerGuide says that 2008 Buick Lucerne vehicles "were impressively quiet."

Conclusion

Except for some cheap plastic, the 2008 Buick Lucerne's interior is worthy of its forebears.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
