Pros

It has been a very good car, low maintenace and good gas mileage

Cons

It has gotten to the point I want to move to a newer model before I get too much mileage on this one. Newer models have more features that I would like

It Is A Great Car, Good Curb Appeal, Comfortable And Good Mileage — Have had very little repairs beyond general maintenance (oil changes and tires). It has been very dependable and a nice looking car. Only reason I am selling is to get a newer model before I get too much mileage on this one.

Perfectly Good Car, I Would Consider Buying Another Buick In The Future — Performance- 0-60 in 8.7 seconds, Braking is decent for a heavy car, handling is very good for a full size sedan Build Quality- No needed repairs since i have purchased it in 2003 except for the yearly maintenance( no sudden breakdowns or malfunctions in car) Appearance- the car is very luxurious in and out although i have added a few new things in the interior. Although the car is very classy in the inside the exterior is not for my age group not to say the car is not attractive. Cost of Ownership- the gas mileage is what is expected of a full size sedan with 19 mpg. Maintenance is basically around 500 dollars a year, although most of it i do it myself. Fun Factor- although my car is not "sporty" it is actually a pretty fast car considering its weight and size. Its a v6 205 HP automatic- compare it to a v6 mustang which has only 5 more hp and a honda civic si which has more than 50 hp less and a I-4 engine.

Pros

Seats 6 with plenty of storage in the trunk.  MPG 33 highway, 22 city.  3800 motor has a great history.  If you find this review helpful please indicate it on this site.

Cons

You will replace a window regulator in it's lifetime.

The Silver Bullet — Two hundred and eighty thousand miles and it still runs and drives like a new one. First car ever to run a set of Defenders over 100,000 miles with tread to spare. Always MPG highway in the 30's. You have to figure a window regulator will go after a while as Buicks are known for this. I replaced the struts after 175k along with the brakes and plugs. Never had a comfort issue. Dependability gets a 10 along with comfort.

Good Solid Car — This is the second Buick LeSabre we have owned and we are very happy with the size and style. The car is very comfortable and gets excellent gas mileage on trips. Visibility is very good around town. I highly recommend this car.

Great, Smooth Ride — I drive this car 600 miles at a shot and feel great after. Everyone who rides with me loves the comfort of this machine. Cost are low. Just need to do regular maintenance except for front window regulators and cruse control cables.

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

Expensive tires and the monthly payment

Belle As In Beautiful — There's more here than I expected... I always thought, "Buick = Granny's Ride".... but now as an owner I'm finding that these cars are quite dependable, relativiely good on fuel economy, and surprisingly stylish (even amongst a younger gereration; I get compliments all the time and more often those compliments are not coming from Martha & Marguerite)

Great — Love everything about this car. Roomy Interior with the front bench seat. Room for six. comfortably, Large trunk for all your luggage. Rides and handles like a dream. Heads-up display is a great option and the seat warmers are a must.

Best Thing I've Owned On 4 Wheels — This is a great car!!! I've had it since 95k, and it keeps going strong. Lots of room, great looks, and a comfortable ride. We've been to Florida, San Antonio, Galveston, and Austin with 5 people in it, and no complaints!

Good, Solid Workhorse. — The only complaint I have is that the dashboard cover has come away from the mounting brackets. The dealership tells me it was caused by excessive heat buildup from sitting parked in the direct sun all day (and refused to pickup the cost of repair !!!)
