I converted to Buicks about 15 years ago because friends and neighbors who had Buicks loved them. This is a smooth riding, responsive, comfortable, gentleman?s car. We bought it used with 67,000 miles on it and it has 88,000 now. No maintenance costs other than scheduled maintenance and tires. I had the moisture sensing feature on the windshield wipers disabled after experiencing delays when slush from passing semis obscured vision while the sensor was deciding whether the windshield was wet or not. I decided not to replace the $600.00 element in the driver?s heated seat. The trunk is big enough for golf clubs and pull cart with room to spare. The engine is more responsive than I need, but comes in handy when passing on a two-lane highway. Front seats are comfortable and fully adjustable. Lately, because of the price of gas, I have considered a Civic or Corolla, but this is a great car, and the reviews say it gets 18/29 mpg. I have never taken time to check actual mpg. This is a fantastic automobile. I enjoy driving it. Looks good. Suits me just fine.

What a great value for the money. In michigan you need a vechicle for any weather condition imaginable and the Lesabre fits the bill. Had the intake issue that is common with this engine which was 400.00. Other than this issue (not isolated to lesabres) it is flawless. Luxury at its best.

Good car for the money.

This is the Lesabre Limited in the Touring edition and Buick really did this right. While it is still the 3.8 engine it has tremendous acceleration and gets outstanding gas mileage. It handles well under all conditions and the transmission is smooth as silk.This edition has all the bells and whistles and as it approaches 20000 miles it just keeps getting better. Smooth and comfortable ride even on rough roads and nary a squeak or rattle. Probably the best car I have owned...

I bought my 2003 Certified Le Sabre in 2006 with 45,000 miles and have now owned it for 1 year. A very comfortable vehicle and very good gas mileage for a vehicle this roomy. I get 21.5 MPG in town and 30-31 MPG on the freeway trips to Vegas or Salt Lake. Quite amazing. I recommend this car for reliability, comfort, mileage, and value for sticker price.

Luxury with 29mpg average!

by from Cotton Valley on May 23, 2008

Beautiful and COMFORTABLE!! The nicest riding vehicle I have ever experienced. Plenty of bells and whistles--notifies you if tires are low or if you need to tighten the gas cap! Highly recommend!

This is the best car I have ever owned. I have bought over 10 new cars in my life time and I have had absolutely nothing to say bad about this car other than the fact that for so reason or another they don't hold their resale value like they should. A great car! I have owned this car for 4 1/2 years.

I bought this used Buick about 2 years ago with 116000 miles on it as a second vehicle to have a comfortable ride with good gas mileage. I am the third owner. (car fax) I like the ride and mileage, but have had a number of mechanical problems which have cost me thousands of dollars. Head gasket, catalitic converter, oxygen sensors, air shocks, windshield wiper moters (4) - don't buy "cardone" brand, stick with AC delco original parts. Maybe I just got one with problems and I hope I am about finished putting $ into it, but if I had known what was coming I wouldn't have bought it! Evidentally the intake manifold, power windows, and dashboard popping up are the most common problems. My mechanic checked after I bought and didn't see the problems that were coming. Still like the car, but haven't enjoyed the repair bills! I am still trying to get my moneysworth out of it.

Purchased car with 70,000 miles as it did NOT have the popped dash board and NO leaks on the intake manifold (common problems) Very reliable model as I am driving the same make and model with 236,000 miles. Had all the bells and whistles including a sun roof. Car was garage kept and was exceptionally clean Including the under carriage. Highly recommend this model for dependable transportation. Note, I get 30 MPG on highway driving.
