2002 Buick LeSabre Overview

One small step below the Park Avenue sits the 2002 Buick LeSabre, America's number one selling full-size sedan. Though driving enthusiasts may like to have their flings with flashier, more exotic, and cooler cars, the LeSabre is like the steady, dependable spouse you always come home too -- reliable, comfortable, and still brimming with enough attributes to keep you plenty satisfied.

The 2002 LeSabre is available as a Custom and more upscale Limited trim, both with a 3.8-liter, 205-hp DOHC V6 and 4-speed automatic. This year, they get a new 8-spoke steering wheel, and new 16-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels are offered in the Gran Touring package for the Limited. The Limited also gets standard leather seats with memory settings. A manual trunk release and a new radio are also added in 2002. The Custom starts you off with ABS brakes, dual front-side airbags, power features, a power driver's seat, cruise control, and remote entry. The Limited adds traction control, OnStar, power front seats, faux wood trim, power outlets, and a trunk pass-through to make up for the non-folding rear seats. Stability control is optional on both models, and you can add a sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, and a 12-CD player. An innovative heads-up display projects information onto the windshield just above the dash.

Overall, the LeSabre is safe and reliable, getting the highest ratings in crash tests. Driver like its smooth power and the 20/29 mpg. The cabin and trunk are roomy, and seats are comfortable on long trips. Drivers say it handles effortlessly, and they like the wheel-mounted audio controls. Criticisms point out the soft brakes, a lot of wind noise, and an ongoing problem with failed power window regulators.
