The Buick Lucerne was introduced in 2006 as a replacement for the LeSabre. Like the LeSabre, the Lucerne has become a favorite with the rental car companies, which can be real headache for locksmiths. General Motors and the other manufacturers sell a lot of vehicles directly to the various rental car fleets and it has become common for manufacturers to use up their old stock of parts on these cars. An example is the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic, which is essentially a 2007 Malibu that is only being sold to the rental car fleets.
Part 1 of our Buick Lucerne Servicing Guide, in the May 2008 issue of Locksmith Ledger, covered car opening and door lock disassembly. Our second installment addresses ignition lock removal and transponder programming.
