Pros

Space, family, being a jazz musician or an old person or just a nice church going car.

Cons

Well, if you don't want to look like an old person or jazz musician.

Comfortable, Capable, And Well, Luxurious — We got this car from my grandparents about 2 years ago, who had replaced it with a deville. The car was in good condition due to the fact that it was owned by old people and wasn't kept under an oak tree. We received it with about 100,000 miles on the clock and a serious problem, the transmission. The reason for the problem is for one, the transmission fluid was well past due for service and that my grandparents drove it at extremely low speeds. So, essentially, the problem was accelerating from a dead stop, kuh-kuh-kuh-kuh as the transmission slipped with very noticeable jerking, not good for a bad neck. However, it has its upsides. An amazing stereo sound system for one and seating for 6. By seating for six i mean that there are six seatbelts and the center console lifts to reveal one of them. All in all its a very comfortable car, spacious, good suspension, trunk space and stereo to boot. My dad even made it to a campsite in the mountains on a trail marked "4x4's only". Performance isn't bad either, because it has the same engine as a Pontiac Gran Prix, the 3800 Series V6, which also means that the gas mileage isn't bad either, 27 mpg after adding up the miles. Only real problem with the build is the aftermarket sunroof which decided to leak during a nor' easter in the summer of 2010 and the trunk latch which wont catch unless you really slam it. Now, the looks. The exterior is styled like a 1970's Vauxhall, not my thing but its not necessarily bad looking. Its the kind of car you'd expect to see B.B. King or Cab Calloway driving. The interior is as I said before, spacious, but I didn't mention luxurious, and it is both of these. a mix of leather and vinyl with (fake?) wood trim. The A/C has front passenger climate control and rear passenger air flow directer. Seats, motorized & heated. Mirrors, motorized and heated. True American Luxury. Upkeep is fairly cheap considering that it is domestic and runs on unleaded regular. Is it fun to drive? Well, no, fun is not the right word. Relaxing, yes, which is how its supposed to be. After all, luxury isn't about being fun, its about being calming and satasfying.

Dave's Buick Lesabre — Performance: Acceleration, braking, and handling is quite good. Build Quality: The Buick LeSabre is quite reliable. The only issue that may seem bad to some people is the humming fuel pump noise behind the driver's side of the vehicle. Also, the power windows was somewhat an issue as the driver's side window was stuck (yet fixed itself about a day or two later) an issue that happened off of the lot. Appearance: The Buick LeSebre is a luxurious vehicle. It has some comfort features and has great appeal as a family car. Cost of Ownership: Mileage was okay when I first bought it and the price was fair ($5,000 at over 75,000 miles). Fuel economy is decent, and maintenance was great. Fun Factor: Even though the sound of the fuel pump may be a deterrence, riding in this can be quite a fun experience.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

If You're Looking To Spend A Little Extra In The Neighborhood Of Quality And Luxury This Is The Car — Being a Buick one cannot expect a lot in the area of performance or handling. The car rolls seriously at speeds over 15 mph and to get the 0-60 time one must use a calendar rather than a stopwatch. However The ride is absolutely perfect and being an American car the build quality is high. This car requires very little maintenance other than an oil change here or there, and the beauty of buying American is when parts are needed they are reasonably inexpensive. You may not get much in the way of MPH or MPG but driving this car is truly an experience. As soon as you step into this car you are immediately swallowed by comfort in the leather seats, fully adjustable and electric. If you're looking to get there comfortably rather than quickly, Buick is the car for you.

Fantastic Car — This car is great. I love buicks and always will. These cars feel solid but do not have crazy gas mileage. Great power, comfort and reliability. Have used this car for family trips and is great for long distance, just be careful, seats are so comfy you might fall asleep!

Pros

Its has a decent amount of miles on it and the inner and outer interior is clean great for a first time driver.

Cons

Minor things have to be done to this car, as we know it is an older car.  Own the car for about  3 years. Really nothing I can say bad about my car

A Good Deal For A Great Car — What I liked about my car is that it saves me money on gas and its not a great big car, but not small one neither. When I brought the car it had 80k on it and its only at 111k .

Not That Bad Of A Car. — I drove this car for about two miles and it wasn't that bad, not that good either but not that bad. It was real good on acceleration because it has the same kind of engine as my Monte Carlo (3800 series). It was indeed a front wheel drive and you know I'm not really a big fan of that. Overall on handling it drove to my expectations. It's a GM car so it is a very reliable car. As for looks, it looks like new even though it's almost ten years old. Very nice looking car. And what's better is it gets better gas mileage then the newer LeSabres. My only problem with it is it has bad visibility.

Very Dependable And Cheap To Drive! — The Buick LeSabre is a great overall car for someone who just wants affordable, safe, and reliable transportation. It's cheap to insure and gets awesome gas mileage for a huge car....30 mpg on the road!
