2000 Buick LeSabre Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
The 2000 LeSabre arrived early in calendar 1999 with evolutionary styling changes from the previous generation but a new front-drive platform under its skin.

LeSabre, Buick’s full-size family sedan, is now built from the same basic design as the Park Avenue, Buick’s luxury sedan.

Exterior
Even loyal LeSabre owners might have trouble telling the 2000 from earlier models. The current model continues the same conservative stance, though with more rounded corners. LeSabre again comes only as a sedan in Custom and Limited price levels. Overall length is unchanged at 200 inches, but the wheelbase grows from 110.8 inches to 112.2. The Park Avenue is 7 inches longer overall and has a 113.8-inch wheelbase.

Interior
As a traditional full-size car aimed at an older audience, LeSabre comes with a standard front bench seat for six-passenger capacity. The front seat is a special design Buick calls the “catcher’s mitt,” which in a rear-end collision moves the head restraints up and forward, closer to the occupant’s head, to reduce the chance of whiplash injury.

Front bucket seats are optional, but only about 5 percent of LeSabre buyers choose them. The Limited model adds a rear center armrest with a pass-through to the roomy trunk, which holds 18 cubic feet of cargo.

Under the Hood
General Motors’ 205-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 engine drives the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission and gives the LeSabre smooth, satisfy...

General Motors’ 205-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 engine drives the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission and gives the LeSabre smooth, satisfying acceleration and passing power.

Safety
Side-impact airbags for the front seats and anti-lock brakes are standard on both models. Traction control and StabiliTrak, an anti-skid system, are optional.

Performance
Like sensible shoes, the LeSabre provides room, comfort and utility at a reasonable price for those with conservative tastes. It is the best-selling full-size sedan, so it hits the right buttons with a lot of buyers

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
