- Herbert Hall, 2010 Buick Lucerne

Very good used car

I really like the car because I owned a 2009 and it reminds me of my old car. It has many extra features that my old car didn't have and has such low mileage - it's a real life cream puff.


  • Interior Space: I love the bench seat which is impossible to get in a new car today - trucks only.
  • Technology and Entertainment: I love the Onstar features that include a mobile app that I can use to unlock the car & start it. It's also a saftey feature in the event of an accident Onstar is notified automatically
  • Cargo Space: It really has a nice trunk - very hard to find that much space in the days of ever shrinking space.


  • Seat Comfort: My particular car is having a problem with the drivers side heated seat. Carmax has tried to fix it twice, but it's acting up again. A bit of a disappointment, but it's the only problem I have in an otherwise perfect car.
