In today’s tough economic times new car buyers are looking for every kind of value they can get for their dollar. One of the most important aspects of any vehicle we look to purchase is how safe it is on the road. For 2008 the standard reply on car safety still rings true.

The safest vehicles are typically those which have electronic stability control, low risk of rollover, have side impact, or side-curtain, airbags, and weigh around 4,000 lbs.

Also, passenger cars are typically safer than SUV’s or 4x4’s because they are less likely to roll over in a sudden move. Next, it’s always good to know your perspective vehicle’s side impact and front impact collision ratings. It’s also very important to remember that it isn’t just how well your car survives an accident that matters, but how well it performs in avoiding an accident in the first place.

One of the top 10 safest vehicles for 2008, is the Buick Lucerne. The ’08 Buick Lucerne is available for a test drive at Coulter Motor Company, 7780 S. Autoplex Loop, in the Tempe Autopark near I-10 and Elliot Road. Why look at Coulter Motor Company to test drive your new Buick?

Today’s Buicks are sleek, aggressive, and designed for today’s tough freeway commutes. The Lucerne is Buick’s newest model. It’s contemporary in appearance with trim, aggressive styling and available with tons of options that drivers use and many drivers can’t do without. In your ’08 Buick you can plug in your MP3 player, enjoy the power of a V8 overhead cam engine, and feel the safety and comfort of a full size car.

In the Buick Lucerne XL, buyers can opt for the powerful Northstar V8 engine. The V8 Northstar engine gives the Lucerne a hefty horsepower delivery of 0 to 60 m.p.h. in just over 7 seconds. With magnetic ride control shock absorbers, even back country roads are a comfortable ride in the Lucerne.

In addition to these features, the Lucerne has some unique to it’s own class of car. Heated washer fluid prevents freezing on the windshield on cold winter mornings, and an available blind spot alert system warns the driver when other vehicles are in the Buick’s blind spots.

On the safety side, the Lucerne has dual-depth airbags. Unlike conventional airbags, these dual-depth bags have the capability to employ in two sizes to help avoid injury to smaller passengers and drivers. Sensors on board the Lucerne monitor crash severity, occupant weight, seatbelt usage, and even seat position to determine the optimal air bag to deploy.
