Best US Car Offered
By David Durrell on
1997 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan
Good value for money. Excellent
motorway cruiser, though ponderous in
mountains. Excellent traction in snow
and ice with FWD. Will return 29-30 MPG
at 75 MPH. Big ticket items in
drivetrain are flawless at 100K miles.
Brakes need work more than I like, but
parts are reasonably priced and it's
easy to work on. Had stiffer shocks
installed which helped handling. Not a
BMW, but a good trade off wrt running costs.
Motorway crusing and stability.
Excellent petrol mileage. Interior
room. Infinitely adjustable seats.
Escellent engine - best V-6 made.
Better build quality. Starting to show
age, but the importanat running and
safety parts work
