Recently I had to make a business trip of about 2500 miles. The nature of the trip made it better that I simply drive (multiple stops along a circle route in the Eastern USA). I rented a car at Alamo, and got a Buick Lucerne. This car was not your typical rental, but had all the gizmos. Once I got on the highway I realized the biggest “gizmo” was under the hood…..a N* engine.
This car was sweet. Ride was good, handled great and with the N* the performance was super. Now I still would not trade my Concours for it (well actually I WOULD since this car was brand new….but I doubt Alamo would have agreed) because I am 6’ 7” and although the Lucerne is not a small car by any means, it did not quite have the room I like.
Still, if you are looking for a sweet vehicle with N* zoom-zoom and without the Caddy price, don’t ignore this car…….
