    As Good As It Gets In A Full Sized Sedan — Car looks fairly modern for being ten years old. Being a large sedan it couldn't be any more comfortable. Sitting inside of it is like relaxing at home in your lazy boy. Its quite even at high speed and when your parked you can barley tell its on. Never had problems with the mechanical side of it however the electronics seemed to fail after awhile but they were easy fixes. Gas mileage for a v6 competed with today cars especially on the highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love every thing about this car it has great space and the ride comfort is amazing.

    Cons: Can be a hassle to park in tight spaces and its not very sporty in the corners

    It Drives . . . — Our 2005 Buick Lesabre has good power, and the mileage is fairly good, about 24 mpg, However, some things are starting to fall apart. The instrument panel gauges are totally bogus, so we do not have speedometer, heat gauge, or fuel level. We use odometer to tell us when to fill up again. We use a GPS for speed. The AC condensation drain is clogged and dumps clear water on passenger feet. The enginge heat sensor has failed, so fan doesn't come on. We can unplug it, and then fan runs constantly, but this gives an engine service warning.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good power. About 24 mpg.

    Cons: Dashboard gauges are dead. We use GPS for speedometer, and track odometer for fuel. Ceiling fabric is starting to fall.  AC condensation dumps onto passenger feet.

    Excellent Family Car For All Occasions. — I like Buick products as they have always been dependable, affordable, comfortable and roomy for both front and rear passengers and this LeSabre is no exception. I would recommend any Buick for comfort, roominess, reasonable repairs if needed, and handling. This is my second Buick, had a 1986 Buick Century till we sold it and was very happy with it as well. Both cars have been dependable and have required few mechanical/electrical repairs.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 29MPG HWY/25mpg city.  Very comfortable, plenty of space for all passengers. Get compliments on appearance and quality of ride. Good acceleration, brakes. Good battery response in cold winters of Ohio.

    Cons: Blind spots when backing out on either rear sides. No side or passenger airbag safety feature.

    I Really Like It — my car is comfortable and smooth. It is good for long drives, but its kind of slow. It came stock with sattelite radip and on star it has optional wheels so no crappy hub cap it is top speed goverend at 104 mph this is with out a doubt. I tried to go faster.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: road trips, kids, reliabuility with GM's tried and true 3800 series engine

    Cons: you want to go really fast

    Unexciting, But Reliable And Comfortable Transportation. — Unless you happen to be riding in the back seat, which is subpar for a full size sedan. The short cushions severely compromise comfort. Fuel Economy is excellent, and acceleration is adequate. The ride is very smooth and the car is quiet at cruise. The engine sounds somewhat thrashy while accelerating it or at idle. Fit and finish is pretty low grade in this sedan. This is clearly a low point of GM vehicles in the late 90s early 2000s. Overall, I think its a reliable and sound choice. But don't except much excellence from this car. It does the job, but not much more.

    Pros: Ride, front seat comfort, fuel economy

    Cons: Fit and finish, rear seat comfort
