Grocery Getter — Good starter car for anyone to drive. Has been very reliable and safe. Handles well and rides the kids with no problems. Great for long or short trips. Vacation car for sure. Long distances or short there is plenty of room for the family and friends and a huge trunk space as well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The look was not as important as the cheap price, it is a comfortable ride for me and the kids to do what we need to get done. Hardly ever in the shop but the gas mileage could be a lot better. Maintenance and repair costs are fair. Lots of leg room for long trips or short

Cons: Gas mileage could be so much better. Maintenance and repair costs have been minimal. Hardly ever been in the shop.

If You Get A Chance To Pick One Up, It'll Last Forever. — Performance - It's got a 3.8l Series II V6. Accelerates better than any other V6 Series II I've driven. Everyone always asks why mines so much better than theirs..simply take care of it. Build Quality - Things rarely go wrong with these cars, especially under the hood. Unfortunately my transmission did go out, but I got a new one back in and it runs just fine and haven't had any problems with it. Appearance - basic Grandparent car, unexpected to do anything suspicious by the cops, it's perfect. Cost - Gas mileage isn't bad, about 25mpg on the highway going 80mph-85mph

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's perfect if you don't mind that grandparents are driving them too!

Cons: Absolutely nothing to hate

Old School Efficiency — Wide frame with lower center helps for above-average manueverability for a mid-size sedan. Always need good grade tires which of course helps out with bad gas mileage with makes you think twice before making back-and-forth trips. chepa but great when kept in tip top shape.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Space and efficiency

Cons: gets old fast

Not Bad — This car preforms well for it's engine it accelerates quickly even with low rpms and can hold a cruize of 80 at just above 2000 rpms making it very fuel efficent even at high speeds. It could use some repairs under the body exterior is fine, it needs new shocks and struts first, im currently replacing the plugs and oil.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel efficiencty with speed

Cons: shocks are bad

Buick Lesabre — Performance- Has some power for a 6, needs new pads but otherwise very good, every turn you feel like your riding on the side of the tires because the body rolls so much. Biuld Quality- Great car has 170 k on it. GM 3800 V6 is a bulletproof engine. Cost of Ownership- 30 mpg hwy, 23 mpg city, has a lot of miles and is still running strong!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 3800 V6 is an incredible engine, its a buick cops dont see it

Cons: It looks like grandma should be driving it.

Cheap, Good Performance, Reliable, Very Ugly And Not So Comfortable — Good centre of gravity, fast acceleration and good gas mileage is always a plus...buy it for your teen (they will hate how it looks, though)

Pros: Price, Fuel Mileage, Acceleration, very smooth ride

Cons: The seats are uncomfortable and the car itself is ugly

"old-man" Car But Has It Where It Counts — this car drives really well for a daily commuter, and can perform surprisingly well. must be that 3.8 liter V-6 buick put under the hood. This car also is very aero-sensative, i.e. it likes to draft behind other cars in high speed traffic.

Pros: Powerful engine, slick ride, good handling for a oldman car

Cons: Looks like an oldman's car

Positive — The 97 Buick LeSabre has very clean classic lines with a very comfortable ride and ample power as well as decent fuel economy provided by the 3.8 litre engine, car pulls through the snow with no problems and feels sure footed on the open hwy. The build quality is better than expected and the materials used were on par with GM's cadillac division at that time. This vehicle feels like it was meant for long trips and will provide satisfaction in driving around town as well. With the supply of parts around as this was a pretty popular car during its production, it would be a wise purchase for the money.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Classic lines, decent power , very comfortable ride one of the best buicks made

Cons: Dont  like the  GM computer chipped  key security system , dash board is missing certain warning gauges and a tachometer. original owners passed on options that could have made the ownership experience much better
