On the 08 LUCERNE if the remote buttons dont open the trunk, how do you get in since there isnt any MANUAL handle to pull?
Buick doesnt know how to open trunk.

Problem with key not turning off and only going to the accesory position making it impossible to remove key from ignition. Our service department cannot get it to repeat and will not replace parts that could correct the problem
I'm having the same problem with my 2007 Buick Lucrene. The key is beginning to become stuck in the ignition. This is very frustrating!!!

There should be a button in your glove compartment to open it manually. I have a 07 Lucrene and there isn't a key to open the trunk on the outside of the car.

Just purchased 2008 Lucerne. Nothing has been done to improve the dash lighting. A friend said he bought a LED light from Walmart for 9.00 dollars. It plugs into the lighter socket. What a fix for a $28000 car.

I have a 2007 Lucerne CXL. The cruise control has caused problems since I got the car.

Is anyone else having these problems?

We are currently having the light cluster in the dash replaced. This is under the warranty. Go to your dealer with this problem.

Buick Lucerne 10 spoke rim problems. I had a bubble in the front sidewall and was told it was due to a dented rim. I must have hit a pot hole? There are alot of pot holes in upstate New York. The rear rim was also dented. The rims cost my collision policy $700 for each rim. Now, three months later, I have another dented rim. For $700 each I'd think they should be able to withstand a pot hole. Is there any history of a similiar problem. I do not drive fast, 57 in a 55 and 66-67 in a 65. I get 27-28MPg but loose the gas savings on cheap rims

I own a 2006 Lucerne with extremely low mileage as I hardly drive it. It only has 11,200 miles and the transmission and brakes failed today!
Computer failure? Transmission problem?
This is the last American car I buy. I've had American cars in order to support our country, but car makers don't care about the consumer anymore. How frustrating!

Dash light problems-I pushed the fog light button on and the dash lights up so that you can see the dash instrumentation during the daytime.

Dashboard lights-push the fog light button to get brighter dash lights during the day.

I too have the dashboard lights problem. I do not see how they cannot correct this problem. They designed it, therefore they should be able to correct the default. I too would like to see a repair for this. The dealer says that one of the corrections would be to change the background and in doing so. there would be a charge. Is that the only answer they can give? Shame on you.

I have had the light cluster replaced in the dash and there was no improvement whatsoever. This is a very serious problem as you take your eye off the road in an attempt to read digital info in the dash. I wish I had kept my LeSabre instead of wasting money on the terrible CXL.

I bought a used 2007 Lucerne. The entry light does not go on when opening the drivers door. It will light from opening any other door or subsequent to using another door will light from opening driver's door. I believe it comes on if key is activated.

I see no visible mechanical sensors nor do I see anything pertinent in the Manual.

Can anyone explain this and offer a cure?

How do you get to the fuse box to check if there is a faulty fuse?

I have a 07 Buick Lucerne CXL, When should I change the transmission fluid, because now at 80,000 thousand miles it is thick and really dark. The tansmission is headsitaing also.

I have a 2007 Lucerne and yesterday without warning a part in the transmission broke and locked all 4 wheels. On Star showed no errors and the car working correctly even though I could not move the car. Never had to replace a transmission in any car I owned. Last Buick I will own
