hi is the onstar turn by turn nav currently available for lucerne's (i know the directions and connections is currently offered)..if so, what does it cost a month...one other question, for those of you who have bought the CXS...re the option of the 18 inch chrome aluminum wheels...i am trying to figure out if i like them (about a $600 option)....i am not sure i do, as they seem to be a bit flashy for what really is kind of a more subtly designed car (it is a buick after all haha)..in fact i am not sure i like the regular wheels offered either, but have only recently paid any attention to it....any opinions?...i am buying a cxs in the next month or so....thanks for your help.....

My understanding is that the Onstar turn-by-turn nav was to be included in production Lucernes as of March 2006, but have not seen any so configured in dealerships as of yet. With respect to CXS wheels, I plan to order a 2007 when available because many production options that I want are becoming unavailable in late 2006 model year vehicles. I had originally opted for the chrome wheels but have seen a couple of CXSs with the standard painted and clear-coated wheels and prefer them to the chrome rims for the same reasons you mention. IMO,chrome 18" wheels on a Buick don't look quite right.

The ones that come instantly to mind with respect to 2006 CXS production are a couple of exterior paint colors, and heated and cooled bucket seats. I last checked 3-4 weeks ago and there might be more by this time. Apparently 2006 production will wind down in early summer and no new orders will be accepted after about mid-May 2006. All of this info is based on inputs from 3 dealers in central Virginia and I can't swear to their accuracy. I'm assuming that the options not now available for special order will be restored with 2007 production because of their popularity, but who knows, given GM's reported problems with suppliers, etc. I'm thinking good thoughts.

I have driven both the CXL and the CXS. The CXL feels softer and doesn't notice some bumps as much, but the CXS feels more planted and doesn't bob as much. Make your choice and pay your money. I think the CXS is overpriced in the current market.
#10 of 11 Question - Compass
Feb 18, 2007 (7:57 pm)
I have a CXL and I saw that the instrument panel has a compass configuration option. How do I view the compass on my dash?

The compass is displayed on the inside rearview mirror and is turned on by the leftmost icon on the OnStar control panel under the mirror.
