The 2008 Buick Lucerne earns high marks for safety.

Most impressive about the Lucerne’s safety are the "good" and "acceptable" ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which performs more rigorous crash tests than the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), though the latter also awarded the Lucerne very good scores in its crash tests.

Cars.com reports "Six airbags are standard in all Buick Lucerne, including side-impact and side curtain airbags," along with "all-disc antilock brakes." The Buick Lucerne's "Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist and an electronic stability system are optional," however.

AutoWeek comments that the Buick Lucerne's "lane-departure warning and blind-spot detection systems" are "mildly useful." This source also notes "unlike the lane-departure system offered by Infiniti, the one Buick uses is not nearly as intrusive."

Conclusion

The 2008 Buick Lucerne performs well in crash tests and provides all the right safety gear, though stability control is still an option.

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.
