2000 Buick LeSabre Sedan Limited 4dr Sedan


Review

We have put almost as much in repairs into this car in the past 10 years than we paid for it, slightly used. At 130K miles has had the following replaced: 2 transmission rebuilds, $5k. Entire front end rebuild, $1.2k, 6 window regulators, $2.4K each at street value, engine computer, $400, hydraulic engine mount, $300, UCV joint, $400, all new wheels needed, $600. Rusting is unbelievable. Car rattles peretually during acceleration, shakes horribly at high speeds. Feels like a 30 year old car. Dash is completely separating and folding up in front of windshield. Numerous other repairs. Interior plastic parts falling off. Of 3 Buicks owned, each one literally fell apart (rust, bumper, trans)


Best Features

Gas mileage, interior comfort, safety rating, sound system, dash controls, size of body, roominess, handling (when newer)


Worst Features

Quality of metal products used in manufactur - sheet metal, exhaust manifold, wheels. Quality of plastics - fasteners, seat belts. Transmission - the worst. Accessibility of spark plugs

Review

Bought this car at auction with 119000 miles. Had this motor in GM vehicles before, love it. Car now has 192000 on it, motor runs like new, average over 25mpg combined not trying! Bad window motors but replacements avail for under $50 if DIYS. Comfortable, plenty of pep,auto everything, next car will be a Park Ave with same drivetrain if this car ever stops, no signs of that happening yet. Air ride system in rear leaked and pricy to fix, replaced with air shock kit, still rides great. AC still ice cold. great car, just style associated with older generation. Recommend to anyone who asks. Hope the 3.8 V6 continues to be utilized, I am a fan.


Best Features

Graet on gas, very comfortable and luxurious inside, all the features and is flat out dependable.


Worst Features

Power window system

Review

Nice motor. good design but the window regulators cast a dark shadow on the overall experience. They are costly to replace but can be had on Ebay for a fraction of the cost. Loaded with comfort options and let's not underscore the exceptional mpg. 35mpg on a 400 mile trip isn't unheard of.


Best Features

3800 v6 motor. roomy trunk Concert sound


Worst Features

window design. Gas gauge and other liyyle annoying things

Review

This has been an excellent car. I hate to give it up as we have averavged 25mpg and this is a full size car. The front wheel drive with traction lock is amazing in the snow. Living in the mountains of Colorado this is a must. The car has 193,000 miles. Yes we had to put a new transmission in at 170000 miles but it was worth it.


Best Features

Luxury


Worst Features

I have never been able to keep the Styled Wheels clean. I have even had them steamed and the gloss was gone before that.

Review

Bought this car at 1 year old with 30K miles on it. Great car. Still have it and love it. Except had to replace all 4 power window lifts, 3 under the warranty (thank goodness). Bad design. Understand newer models have a design change to fix the problem. Nice features and good ride/handling. Plenty pep. Also had a spark coil and motor mount failure at about 50K miles. But car looks great (still) and runs great. Gets about 22 mpg around town and about 26 on highway travel Would definitely consider buying another one.


Best Features

Rain sensing wipers, steering wheel controls for radio & speed control.


Worst Features

Fix pervasive rattles in dashboard. Provide for easy replacement of lights in dash and door controls. Reduce sound from leveler activation. Battery under rear seat is a real pain. Provisions for jumping under the hood barely adequate.
