I'd say that this is a pretty good sedan. My satisfaction level is average. Of course, the car may have been dressed with a costume that looks "imported". But the interior and that Northstar V8, that'* just pure GM blood.
Now that I think of it, that steering wheel looks so Ford Taurus. Hm.

But anyway, I was shocked too when I found out that the Park Avenue died. We'll just have to wait till 2007, when the new Buick Flagship comes to life. Till then, the Lucerne will do its job very well.

I like it, it'* a more sporty step up from what I was used to seeing from Buick. I LOVE those port holes on the side. From the side it looks real similar to a 2000+ bonnie. That rearend is just too...... too....... too blah. Not enought curvature going on. It just sort of stops and looks as if they threw some tail lights on it. The exhaust tips dont really match up well either. They should have had some reccessed holes in it and have the tips peaking out of those like on a bonnie. Just having them poke out from the middle of nowhere makes it look tacky and hurried together throughout design.

Wow, that is a VERY close resemblance. I'll always love GM, and Buick with them, but I'm not impressed with the styling of this new car. Too damn 'generic', even for Buick! Come on, GM, get some imagination! It will be interesting to see how the future Bonneville/G8 turns out...

Now that I look, it resembles the '02+ Altima, as well.
