1999 Buick LeSabre Sedan Custom 4dr Sedan


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.

Review

My dad bought this car about four years ago and I loved it right away. Eventually passed it on to me about 6 mos ago and have had few to no problems other than routine maintanance. At 161,000 miles it still drives good but starting to show signs of age but I think it can last another 10-15k miles. Until I can get a new car


Favorite Features

3800 (3.8L) V6, leather seats, fuel economy (about 25 mpg combined)


Suggested Improvements

Better stock speakers

Review

Great car. Needs nothing except for the usual; tune-up, oil change, etc. Fun to drive. Surprisingly powerful. Great fuel economy 29mpg hwy. A little too comfortable. Roomy. It is very low profile .


Favorite Features

It is a solid car. Rides quiet. Will last you forever if you don't drive like an idiot.


Suggested Improvements

Console needs to be more stable.

Review

I have put on 40,000 miles since buying this car. No problems, great ride etc, except two weeks ago I became stranded because of the plenum burned out and coolant was logged in the lower intake causing the piston to stop thus stopping my car in the middle of nowhere. I had to walk for miles before a gentleman stopped and offered me a ride. Why was this part (egr) made of plastic and not metal...to save $.20 on each one? Now its going to cost me over $600. to repair it.. Good engineering. One thing is for sure and that is I will stick with Japanese cars..My last was an Acura and I sold it at 181,000.miles.

Review

We purchased our '99 LeSabre after enjoying our '94. After 7 years the car is still smooth, comfortable and quiet. Yes, the 3.8 V6 does get 20+ in local driving and 30 on the road, which is helpful with gas prices today. Friends with newer cars may tease me about the "old mans" car,but they like the smooth ride and the comfortable seats. The only problem has been the battery. I'm on the third one. It's best driven easy, but does have good power for a big car.


Favorite Features

Leather seats, smooth ride, steering wheel controls, gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Better handling without sacrificing the ride.
