2000 Buick LeSabre Overview

Based on 22 reviews
Though it looks much the same on the outside, the 2000 Buick LeSabre gets a new Park Avenue platform, safety enhancements, and interior updates. The number one selling full-size sedan in the U.S., the LeSabre adds an inch to its wheelbase, though retaining its overall length. This adds more interior room and better performance stability. It also gets standard side impact bags and new front passenger head restraints. Front and rear fascias get tweaked, with new clear headlights, and inside, the dash is more contoured and sports larger gauges and controls. Outside, the dowdy chrome door handles are replaced with sleeker body-colored ones. Even the trunk gets an extra cubic foot of space
The 2000 LeSabre comes in Custom and Limited trims, both featuring two rows of bench seats. In this setup, the roomy sedan can seat six, though front bucket seats are optional on the Limited. Rear seats do not fold down, but there is a trunk pass-through on the Limited. A 3.8-liter, 205-hp V6 engine and 4-speed auto tran power the 2000 LeSabre, and torque peaks at a lower rpm this year. Standard features include dual front airbags, ABS brakes, daytime running lights, cruise control, and power features. Keyless entry is new this year. Upgrading to the Limited gets you wood trim, automatic headlights, auto-dimming mirrors, an alarm system, heads-up display, power seats, and power outlets. New options for the 2000 LeSabre include a sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, and a 12-CD changer. Traction and stability control, leather seats, and a Gran Touring package with a stiffer suspension and bigger wheels are also extra.
Buick's consumers have always been an older crowd, but the newly restyled 2000 LeSabre hopes to attract young families looking for safety, comfort, and lots of space. Drivers say the car handles smoothly, with confident power and decent 20/31 mpg. Seats are comfortable for long trips. Some wish a V8 was offered. The biggest problem with the 2000 LeSabre is failure of the power window regulator. Almost everyone has had to get this repaired.
