03 Buick LeSabre
The good, good gas mileage, with the Buick 3.8 thats been around for about 40 years and is one of the most reliable engines ever made. Build quality if good, nice interior etc. The bad, the G bodys across the GM line are known for a highway wobble on the front wheels. Mine occurs at about 65. So its not a huge issue but it can take time to isolate the problem, it can be tires, alignment, worn shocks, worn tire rods, out if spec brake rotors...you get the idea. Its not a big enough problem for me to chase the issue down but will address it as parts are replaced.
Clean, used car.
These are reliable cars! If you find a low mileage LeSabre then take care of it you will have reliable transportation for years!
2003 Buick Lesabre Limited
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.
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.
Good deal for the price & timing
Due to the circumstanes involved, this car was a good match for our family. Low miles, reat condition...it was nice to find a car as quick as we did in such good shape.
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.
great value car
I have owned vehicle for 7 months and believe it is a great value for price, comfort, economy and reliability. Researched vehicle 6 months before buying; one of best cars have owned!
Good car for the money.
This is a safe, reliable car and it definitely meets or exceeds its EPA gas mileage estimates in both the city and on the highway. On the highway at 65 mph I average in the high 20's to low 30's for gas mileage.
It's like driving a couch, smooth & comfortable.
Drive this big car easy and it will go easy on your gas budget --- over 30 mpg on the freeway and over 25 mpg combined city & freeway driving --- quite amazing! But "Cheap" power window mechanisms --- had to replace every one of them at one time or another.
Luxury with 29mpg average!
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!
