1999 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

The best gas mileage for a car of this size! The gas mileage is better than my sister's Chevrolet Cavalier! Although the styling and seating may seem outdated, this is a great find! If you are looking for a car that has plenty of room for passengers and their cargo, this is the car. It is not meant to be a "fun handling" car. It is meant to be a very comfortable way to get from place to place with a minimum of disruption, which is quite important to some of us who refuse to drive like we are in a NASCAR race! See the 'Buick" emblem, and leave us alone.


Suggested Improvements

Offer power lift and swivel seats for those of us who have a hard time with out joints!

1999 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

Paid $15,000 in 2000. Replaced transmission at 252,000. Now has 310,000. Yep!310,000 miles on engine that has had one ignition coil and two sets of plugs and plug wires. Just made a 500 mile round trip to NC mountains and MPG was 32.8. I double checked it twice. It is not unusual to top 30 MPG on trips. Bad mouth it all you want and I will smile and wave as I go buy at 70 MPH and 30+ MPG.Most reliable car I have ever Had.


Favorite Features

reliability, comfort, and mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Eliminate wind noise around mirrors, which they have already done.

Review

I've had this vehicle from inception and only given it the routine maintenance. Regular oil changes, tire rotations and a fresh tune up every 100k miles. I had the belts and hoses checked at 215k miles and all looked fine (all original). The interior has begun to show some age, but with the vehicle running so well and averaging ~27 MPG mix between highway and city, I continue to be pleased with the vehicle. I have aspirations of running this car beyond 300k miles.


Favorite Features

3.8 L V6 offers enough pick up for my needs and the fuel economy is not much behind some of the smaller fuel efficient vehicles. Plenty of trunk space for trips as well.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any.

Review

This is a very simple car. It goes up and down the road and is very comfortable. It's not a quick or a new car but it's reliable and it's cheap. I found that you can eliminate most of the road noise that you get with a good set of tires. It's easily one of the best cars I've owned for taking trips.


Favorite Features

Comfortable, cheap, and quiet


Suggested Improvements

Maybe better handling but then we'd probably lose some of the comfort in the ride.

Review

Yah... It's not the most stylish car! But I drive 30,000 miles/ year & my lesabre hasn't stuck me once. Great mileage for a lead sled & comfy. It's got over 188,000 miles & I just replace the original starter. Just starting to develop an intermittent miss. If you don't care about style... & you can pick one up.... go for it. And remember, ANY car can be a lemon!


Favorite Features

27 mpg highway, Self leveling suspension & nice leather gut!


Suggested Improvements

Buick should've spent some money on style.
