- 2006 Lucerne CX - 3800
I agree with this but what I've noticed (and read about in older reviews) the Lucerne, for whatever reason, is hard to get in/out of for a larger car. For months I thought it was just me. I find myself using the back of my arm/elbow to push on the B pillar to get out of this damn thing. Thought maybe it's because I was just getting older too but.......I drove my sister's VW Beetle to work while my Lucerne was in for a repair and I simply stepped right out of that car with no effort. This is obviously a problem with the Lucerne. I can't really figure out what is wrong or what was overlooked or improperly designed with it. Wish the GD doors would stay opened too. I picked up her dog from the vet, placed the dogs crate on the ground, opened the door, picked up the crate....and the door shut on me. The car was on level ground. The front doors are worse with this.
