Pros

Comfortable, roomy, decent gas mileage for a large car.

Cons

It's not made anymore, so I will have to downsize when I look for a newer Buick. I'm not a fan of leather seats.

Satisfied — I don't care much for leather seats, cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Seems like the driver's seat heater doesn't last a long time in these cars. Overall, still an great driving car. approximately 30 mph on highway.

A Really Nice Car, With No Problems In The 3 Years I Have Driven It. — I love everything about the car. It treated me good for 4 years. its a classic car. I had to fix the power windows on the passenger side one time. Its still running smooth after 213,000 miles. not much to complain about. overall very reliable.

This Is A Great Driving And Family Car. — This is the second Buick that I have owned, and I was very satisfied with both of them. I would recommend this car or any Buick to own. The car have given me 23-25 city and 30-33 highway miles per gallon.

Pros

It has been a reliable car and has a good ride.

Cons

We had to replace the transmission at 120,000 miles

Family Car — This car has been just OK for us. We replaced the transmission at 120,000 miles and just replaced the battery after 10 years. After 130.000 miles it has begun to have a valve lifter noise on cold start-up. I am hoping that it does not get any worse. It uses about a 1/2 quart of oil every 1000 miles which is not bad for the age of the car. 2014 update - sold the car with 175000 miles on it. It was still running OK but I was worried about its reliability.

The Lesabre Is A Very Nice Ride. — This Buick is like a Cadillac. It rides well and is very quiet on the highway. The automatic trunk pop is a real blessing at the grocery. You just push the remote button and it opens... then you can put the groceries directly into the trunk.

Pros

Reliable spare car, great gas mileage for a full size sedan, soft ride, cold air, power everything

Cons

Small things like: switch back lights (multiple on steering wheel and dash) ($12 in eicko 8111 t1 .065a bulbs from Amazon, a soldering iron and some free time to replace),  cruise control switch does not stay clicked on ($20 replacement), left passenger door lock/window module needed to be replaced ($50 ebay motors replacement), dash mat separating and lifting up (I ended up fitting a thin piece of flat molding between the curling dash and grill and it is holding down the dash perfectly..a good long term solution until Buick releases a fix (I'm not holding my breadth :-).

Comfy Riding Second Car — Just bought it used, 49k miles! I needed a reliable backup vehicle and got a lot of car for the money! This vehicle has like new leather seats, dual power seats, dual climate control, power everything, cavernous trunk and traditional styling..not flashy but gets me where I need to go comfortably!

Wanda, The Boulevard Cruiser — This car was purchased as a fluke. I was visiting my parents and I needed something reliable and cheap. Turns out I kind of like it--within its parameters. Good highway cruiser--fairly floppy around town. Surprisingly great fuel economy-- 23 overall, 32 on level freeway at 70. Very comfortable, typical GM squeaks and rattles in dash. Tons of luxury features--rainsensing wipers, automatic headlights, great sound system. Repairs can be expensive. Decent acceleration, engine sometimes coarse.

Great Driving Car With A Few Nagging Problems. — Parents bought the car new. Have had to replace the power windows 5 different times on various windows. Drivers window gone out once, passenger front window twice, and each rear window once. Transmission gone out twice, though the second transmission was salvaged. Besides that, rides great and gets great fuel economy.
