Consumers apparently were not waiting for the latest Consumer Report on what vehicles to purchase. According to Don Hammonds of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the new full-sized Buick Lucerne, which replaces the LeSabre and the Park Avenue; and Ford's new mid-sized Fusion, one of two replacements for the Taurus (the other being the Five Hundred), are proving to be strong sellers for their respective automakers.
Sales of the Lucerne, for example, went from a paltry 285 in October to 2,724 in November and over 6,000 in January and 7,327 last month. And the Fusion had over 5% market share among the mid-sized sedans last month, as well.
