Explore the 2003 Buick LeSabre

It's like driving a La-Z-Boy

I had purchased my first Buick in 2017 when my current vehicle bit the dust. I was a traveling journeyman electrician stuck in Des Moines, Iowa. I purchased the 2003 LeSabre for $500 and wasn't expecting it to last long. It had 87k miles on it and was used as a winter car only. It gave up in the spring of 2021 with 350k miles on the odometer. It was fixable, but I let it go. I'm about to purchase another, same year, same make and model, with a shade over 100k miles....


COMFORT!!! Died a tragic and premature death.

This was the most comfortable car I ever owned. Driving this car throughout college, I embraced the "old man" stigma that came with it. The nicest way to describe the interior styling is "simple." However, for 2003, the steering wheel controls and heated seats are a nice touch. The trunk can carry so much, and even tall passengers can use the back seat with no issue. This car takes some getting used to. The hood seems to extend 20ft beyond the driver's seat, and it feels like floating over the road. However, if you are lucky enough to call this beauty yours, you will embrace what it is, and enjoy the floating boat way of driving down the road. I feel this review would not be complete without saying that my beauty tragically kicked it around 110,000 miles (not incredibly high) after the transmission started skipping and metal shavings were found in the transmission fluid upon investigation. As far as I know, this is not the norm.


just hit 200,000 miles

I am the fourth owner and after I purchased it I had some major issues, but pushed hard and got it fixed before my 30 days were up. It drives so smooth there are times I cant tell its running. I am now dealing with a slight oil leak that my mechanic says is normal with an older car, he says there is nothing I can do. I also get a weird tinny sound when the ac or heat aren't on, not always but often I hear this sound. The car is very comfortable whether sitting in the back or front, there is plenty of space. I paid 3000 for this car and it had 168,000 miles, I feel like I have totally gotten good use for the money.


A No brainer

My speedometer says 140 miles an hour and believe me it did that and a little more comfortable reliable Parts are cheap easy to maintain I don't know anybody that would want anymore and decent gas mileage


Most reliable car I have ever owned.

Maintain it, and it's the closest thing to driving for free. Safe, reliable, great highway gas mileage (30 MPG), and it has xxxxx. They designed a great car in the Le Sabre!


Happy used Car owner!

This vehicle did indeed fit everything from my budget to fantastic ride. Also, it was neat, clean, and shiney inside and out! It combines sporty with family so the kids like it too.


A very dependable vehicle to Drive.

Drive this car for everday use. Drive to work its very stylish easy on gas. Rides great on the highway. Worth every dollar. Smooth ride.


Reliable and comfortable

This car is very reliable and a smooth comfortable ride. You can fit anything in the trunk! I really like the leather interior which is easy to keep clean.


Best Ride you will ever have!

I have owned 2 Buick Le Sabres and I think the LeSAbre is the best ride and most realible car available.I asked an insurance company after an accident what they would recommend for a used car. After 17 years of evaluating cars for claims they said only 2--Buick LeSabre & Toyota Camery. Best advice I ever recieved.I pulled a vehicle report and it showed not history of damage or problems


Extremely comfortable full-sized car

This car met all of my needs for in-city commuting as well as long-distance driving in a comfortable, spacious and reliable vehicle.
