The reinvention of the Buick brand continues with the autumn launch of the 2006 Lucerne. Following on the heels of the 2005 LaCrosse, this bigger and bolder model has been designed to take over from the LeSabre and the more upscale Park Avenue. Both cars developed a solid following over the past dozen or so years, primarily with the taxi and limo crowd in addition to many buyers of a pensionable demographic. Although fleet purchasers should also gravitate to the Lucerne, it's a younger audience that should find this Buick at least worth a second look.

We're not out of 'Woods' yet When I contracted it, I cannot say, but it seems that sometime in the past year I came down with a serious case of TB. That's Tigerburculosis. As the girl in "Clueless" would say, I am like soooo sick of Tiger Woods it makes me want to hurl. It wasn't always this way. I actually enjoyed watching him up until about the British Open this year. It was after that, I think, that the media went wild, force-feeding us Tiger for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A Buick that can really move is always welcome, especially if it can move plenty of passengers and a boxcar load of cargo in all sorts of weather and driving conditions. That's the essence of the 2008 Enclave, a meaty and mighty four-door wagon that's one of a trio of new vehicles being introduced by General Motors that includes the platform-shared Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia. The Enclave, however, stakes out the luxury-class end of the spectrum, replacing the minivan-based Buick Rendezvous and eventually the Rainier sport-ute.
