Model News

The 2009 Buick Lucerne sees few changes overall, but those few are fairly significant for the American luxury sedan. Chief among them is a new, more powerful 3.9L V6, which puts out 227 hp and 237 ft-lb of torque--30 more hp and 10 more ft-lb than the 3.8L V6 it replaces, with the added benefit of slightly better fuel efficiency. Additionally, the engine is FlexFuel-capable, allowing it to run on gasoline or 85% ethanol. The new engine will power CX and CXL models.

Lucernes in Super trim have a revised steering setup and recalibrated Magnetic Ride Control suspension for even more driver control and road performance.

The CXS trim has gone away, leaving the CX, CXL, and V8-powered Super as the three Lucerne trim choices. All three cars receive increased standard features for 2009.


Model Highlights

For 2009, Buick's Lucerne is offered in three different trim levels--CX, CXL, and Super. These models cover a broad range of automotive expectations, from a comfortable full-size car to a sporty, loaded luxury cruiser. The CX model has the softest suspension, while the CXL gets a slightly firmer "Ride and Handling" setup, along with 17-inch wheels. Top Super models upgrade to a sport-tuned suspension with GM's Magnetic Ride Control, which uses a fluid with magnetically charged particles to quickly adjust the damping for either quick maneuvers or rough surfaces. CXS and Super models also get StabiliTrak stability control and brake assist in addition to the standard anti-lock brakes.

CX and CXL models are powered by an all-new 227-horsepower 3.9L V6. The engine is FlexFuel-capable, which means it can run on gasoline or 85% ethanol. The Super derives its 292 hp from a 4.6L Northstar V8 engine. All Lucernes get utilize a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The base CX includes standard amenities like single-zone air conditioning, power programmable door locks, OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise controls. Also standard is Buick's QuietTuning, an engineering initiative that reduces, blocks, and absorbs unwanted outside noises.

Luxury features abound on the Lucerne range, and they're grouped into several large packages. The Comfort and Convenience Package, which is standard on the CXL and Super, is available on the CX and brings heated outside mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a garage door opener, cargo net, and power passenger seat.

The Driver Confidence Group, which is standard on the Super and available on the CX and CXL models, includes remote start, ultrasonic rear park assist, heated washer fluid, rain-sensing wipers, and StabiliTrak stability control.

The Luxury Package, standard on the CXL Special Edition and Super and available on the CXL, brings heated power front seats with lumbar adjustment and memory, a heated leather steering wheel, and more.

Finally, the Ultra Confidence Package makes available the side blind zone alert and lane departure warning system in all but the CX model.

Standalone options include the blind zone alert and lane departure warning systems, a heated wood steering wheel and heated/cooled seats, and a harman/kardon audio system (which is available on CX and CXL models and standard on Super models).


Pros

Comfortable ride; back-seat space; available high-tech safety features.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Buick Lucerne continues to be part traditional American luxury car, with a back seat spacious enough for adults, and part high-technology flagship. The new 3.9L V6 offers increased power in lower trim levels, while the Super model, with its sportier tuning and Northstar V8 engine, does much to break away from the staid image of Buicks past.

Summary
GM IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006-2009 BUICK, LUCERNE; CADILLAC DTS; HUMMER H2; MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 BUICK ENCLAVE; CADILLAC CTS; MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 CADILLAC ESCALADE, ESCALADE ESV, ESCALADE EXT; CHEVROLET AVALANCHE, SILVERADO, SUBURBAN, TAHOE; GMC ACADIA, SIERRA, YUKON, YUKON XL; SATURN OUTLOOK; AND MODEL YEAR 2009 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A HEATED WASHER FLUID SYSTEM (HWFS). A RECALL WAS IMPLEMENTED IN 2008 TO ADD A FUSE TO THE CONTROL CIRCUIT HARNESS TO ADDRESS THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF A PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) ELECTRICAL SHORT. HOWEVER, THERE HAVE BEEN NEW REPORTS OF THERMAL INCIDENTS ON HWFS MODULES AFTER THIS IMPROVEMENT WAS INSTALLED. THESE INCIDENTS RESULTED FROM A NEW FAILURE MODE ATTRIBUTED TO THE DEVICE'S THERMAL PROTECTION FEATURE. THE SIGNIFICANCE VARIES FROM MINOR DISTORTION TO CONSIDERABLE MELTING OF THE PLASTIC AROUND THE HWFS FLUID CHAMBER.

Consequence
IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE HEATED WASHER MODULE TO IGNITE AND A FIRE MAY OCCUR.

DEALERS WILL PERMANENTLY DISABLE AND REMOVE THE HEATED WASHER FLUID MODULE. AN UPDATED PAGE FOR THE OWNER MANUAL WILL BE PROVIDED AND INSERTED IN THE OWNER MANUAL TO DOCUMENT THAT THE FEATURE HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY DISABLED AND REMOVED FROM THE VEHICLE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JUNE 11, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, CADILLAC AT 1-866-982-2339, CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, SATURN AT 1-800-972-8876, GMC AT 1-866-996-9463 AND HUMMER AT 1-800-732-5493 OR AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
