I like the Lucerne also. I wish they would have put the 3.5 in it though. It'* better suited for a car like the Lucerne..

The horsepower rating is probably now lower because of the new way of calculating horsepower is different..

Its got a lower HP rating due to the more restrictive exhaust.

heated windshield washer fluid is useless without a remote starter.

I mean, you take a freezing windshield, put that hot of something on it, won't it crack? I've seen a 30* windshield bust from lukewarm water *I didn't do it, somebody else*.
