1982 Buick LeSabreReview
Pappi — plenty of torque but the car weighs to much for it to be in a fun way. braking is good and handling is average which surprised me given the size of the boat... repairs are plentyfull but cheap as ever given the age of the car... the interior is like nothing i have ever seen, pillowtop cushioning on all seats, woodgrain dashboard... like driving an expensive couch... exterior has plenty of chrome and is flashy enough for my taste. cost of ownership is high due to the terrible gas mileage($80 a tank using low grade fuel and it lasts 380kms)... the car is fun but not in a performance related way... fun to just cruise and enjoy the ride and the attention
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: style and comfort
Cons: gas mileage
