Why I Love My Buick! — i bought this car approximately 3 months ago, and it's the most comfortable vehicle i've owned. it rides so smooth, i think it rides better than my sisters cadilac or lexus. i will never purchase another vehicle unless its a buick.

Would Tell Anyone Good Things About These Cars. — I like the fact that it is an american made vehicle...oh yeah, it rides like you are on a cloud.. It has some quirks and slight issues, but has much, much less rust then my 1991 corsica, and i feel much safer putting my family in this car. It gets up and goes thanks to the 3800 V6, gets descent gas mileage, and it is pretty fun to cruise around in.

Pros

96 thousand miles and she's still purring

Cons

to much car for one old grandma

Reliable — smooth ride, plenty of room, to much to wash, bad cup holders. comfy seats. great heater and air conditioner, huge trunk, holds a lot of suit cases. and boxes and coolers, and beach chairs and umbrellas. plan on keeping her for a while. she is barely broke in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Powerful 205-hp 3.8 liter V6, automatic headlights so you never worry about turning them off or on.

Cons

Axle hop; serpentine belt runs everything in the engine, so if it breaks or gets loose, the whole engine is involved..

55

Elegance At A Nice Price — This car is great for those who can't afford Cadillacs. The 205-hp 3.8 liter V6 is powerful! It really rockets you away from those stoplights. You can pass other cars with ease. The detailed (for its time) radio with accompanying controls on the steering wheel delivers an excellent sound. It gets good gas mileage to boot.

Pros

Gas mileage, acceleration, beautiful design and reliability.

Cons

Transmission issues do crop up and aren't cheap to fix. Breaks need to be replaced often with hard driving. EM break on the floor.

Solid Domestic Vehicle, With Excellent Performance For A Sedan. — With a 0-100kph in less than 10 seconds, 9.4km l to 7.8km l (with 93-octane) and good handling, the LeSabre is a great sedan for travel and daily use. Takes a lot of abuse and better off-road travel and ground clearance than a Ford Crown Victoria (Police should take note!).

Pros

It's a smooth ride even on gravel roads and it's easy to drive

Cons

gas mileage kinda sucks!

35

??? — The performance on it is pretty much perfect on it. I haven't needed to repair ANYTHING on it, it was well taken car of. There is nothing wrong it it's appearance, no scratches, dents or anything. The gas mileage on it kinda sucks though. And to me it's fun to drive around, but most of all it gets me from point A to point B.

Pros

it runs

Cons

its not a Ferrari or Aston Martin

25

Huh? — I like it. its nice esp. for a buick. i like ferrari's better. though aston martins dominate all cars. it revs nicly (i guess) any way, it doesnt cost to much. only a small amount each month. If you enjoy the way sedans and slightly "fancy" cars, its farly desent. it has leather seats!

This car needs a facelift. It's red paint is not original, and it shows. The interior for this model is a little boring compared to the pizzaz normally found in the 60's. But, it is close enough to... Read More
