2005 Buick LeSabre Overview

The Buick LeSabre holds several notable distinctions. As Buick's entry level full-size sedan (just a notch below the Park Avenue), the LeSabre is both the number one selling car in its class in America for the last 12 years, but also the longest-lasting and only surviving name from a Buick sedan lineup that was introduced back in 1959. After 47 years on America's highways, the LeSabre bids farewell at the end of 2005.

As such, there are minor changes to the 2005 Buick LeSabre, consisting mainly of OnStar now being standard on all three of the LeSabre trims -- Custom, Limited, and Celebration Edition. The Celebration Edition is a holdover from 2003, and adds on to the luxury-oriented Limited with a heads-up display, mirrors with turn signals, standard 16-inch wheels, two-tone leather, and StabiliTrak. All LeSabres come with self-leveling rear suspension, ABS brakes, dual front airbags, power features, power driver's seat, and cruise control. The Limited adds traction control, side impact bags, leather seats, memory settings, and dual-zone climate control. A 205-hp, 3.8 DOHC V6 and 4-speed automatic provides for a smooth, yet powerful ride in both city and highway.

There are lots of nice options, such as a sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, and heated seats and mirrors, that drive the 2005 LeSabre up into luxury sedan prices. Standard seats are bench, to accommodate up to six people, but front bucket seats can be substituted. Owners say they are sad to see the LeSabre go, as it has provided them with a steady dependability over the years, smooth comfort, and easy handling. Gas mileage is commendable for a full-size, and the trunk space (18 cubic feet) is ample for lots of luggage. There are few complaints about the 2005 LeSabre, and these are mostly to do with what it lacks: no fold-down rear seats and no seatback pockets.
