Is a used 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL worth it?


Asked by Aug 05, 2017 at 08:20 PM about the 2006 Buick Lucerne V6 CXL FWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm considering buying a Used 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL as
my first car for 3,333 dollars. It has 197,000 miles on it and
looks in excellent condition. I'm just curious if a car with
almost 200,000 is worth it. Thank you in advance!

Can you afford to lose 3 grand the day after you buy it? I am not saying it will die but you have to go into a car like this expecting that it will die and not be worth fixing at any time.


Good point. If it didn't last me for a least a year that'd be a big lost.

Ask your self how much you will drive. If the car is in nice shape and you are only going to drive a few thousand a year it might last for quite a while.


Plenty of used cars that are under $5k out there. Stick with the reliable brands like Toyota and Honda. Lots of used sedans that easily can hit 200K miles if properly taken care of. I wouldn't risk it with a buick... my opinion


the drivetrain is usually near the end of life at that much mileage in my experience. it depends on how well the owner serviced it. the signs should be there when u test it. my transmission was rebuilt at 164k.


That car will have the 3800 V6 so the engine is not an issue. However, other things can be expensive if you are paying a mechanic.....but that is true with any car.


Thanks for the responses everyone. With it's high mileage I've come to a conclusion that I can't trust this car will last me for how long I want it to without costly repairs. Thank you.
