Took my Lucerne back to my dealer. The noise was not as loud as the first time. They were very nice. After about an hour wait they told me they replaced an exhaust hanger or two, said the exhaust pipe was just touching a body/frame member.
Made a difference.
Still makes a slight noise but now that I've started paying attention, my 1994 Park Ave tends to do the same thing. Not as noticeable but, it is there.
Think I will leave well enough alone. Not really bothersome now, just noticeable. Still like the PA much more than the Lucerene.
Dealer was very attentive and pleasant to work with through the whole thing. In fact, told me that it is still under factory warranty until 50,000 miles. (Only 40, 00 on it now.) Dealer - Garber Buick, Saginaw, MI.
I told the service manage how pleased I was with their service and told him that they were much better than a Garber Chevrolet dealer in another town. He said with a smile, "Sir, we are a Buick dealer, they are not!"
