Model News

For 2010, the Buick Lucerne returns with few basic changes, including updated rocker panels and foglamps formerly found only on the Super are now standard across the line. Other changes include new backlit gauges, new optional 18-inch wheels on the super and Bluetooth connectibility is available on the base CX model. Dark Crimson Metallic, Ming Blue Metallic, Gold Mist Metallic and Dark Mocha Bronze Metallic paint have been discontinued, while Pearl Frost Tri-Coat, Light Bronze Metallic and Sand Beige Metallic have been added.


Value Writeup

The 2010 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 Buick's past.


Model Highlights

Buick's Lucerne is offered in four different trim levels for 2010--CX, CXL, CXL Special Edition 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. CXL 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 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. New this year is the addition of Bluetooth connectibility. 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.

IF EITHER THE STARTER OR ALTERNATOR CABLE IS CONTACTING THE POWER STEERING RETURN LINE, THE CABLE COULD WEAR THROUGH THE LINE, CAUSING A POWER STEERING FLUID LEAK.

Consequence
A POWER STEERING LEAK COULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF POWER STEERING, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH, AND/OR THE LEAK ONTO HOT ENGINE PARTS COULD CAUSE AN ENGINE COMPARTMENT FIRE.

DEALERS WILL SECURE AND IF NECESSARY REROUTE THE LINES TO PREVENT CONTACT. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 19, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CADILLAC AT 1-866-982-2339, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080 AND AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

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).
