2002 Buick LeSabre Sedan Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

GM's 3.8 engine and trany provide an excellent balance between power, acceleration and fuel milege. The car is great to drive on long trips and handles well with the grand touring suspension. The other plus is the excellent safety rating for the LeSabre.


Favorite Features

The interior has plenty of leg, hip, shoulder and head room front and rear. The lumbar support and power seats making driving long distances a pleasure. The sound system is very good. The heated seats are nice in the winter.


Suggested Improvements

Make the front center arm rest longer and redesign the cup holders to hold larger cups with out interfence.

Nice car but fit and finish is poor. Lot of dash rattles.

2002 Buick LeSabre Sedan Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Always wanted one; finally bought one. Should have done it 10 years ago. Some call it an "old person's" car. I first drove one at 42 and discovered why - they are very sensible vehicles. If you're looking for "chick magnet" or "hot rod", move on or purchase a "fun car" with the money you save over other vehicles of the LeSabres type.


Favorite Features

Adequote power, economy (29-30 mixed driving), very comfortable, quiet, safe.The sound system works great. The 3.8 engine and tranny are time tested. Home mechanics can access engine parts easily with openness beneath hood.


Suggested Improvements

I could suggest improvements in body finish, and there are a couple of rattles in the cab.

Review

Buick has hit the mark with this one. This vehicle is a pleasure to drive. Great mileage, plenty of space, elegant style, and superior value compared with other full-size cars. You can't go wrong with this vehicle. No unusual or excessive motor sounds. My experience is a quiet ride.


Favorite Features

Sytlish interior and a comfortable ride.


Suggested Improvements

My only suggestion would be to upgrade the tires at the factory.

Review

The alternator has a whistle which is loud enough to be a problem. The brake clicks everytime you use it. The back of the seats have play in them. The dealerships can not correct these problems. The original tires had to be upgraded because of defects at additional cost to the customer. This car does not live up to the 8.9 rating.


Favorite Features

The transmission is one of the finest and the 308 engine lives up to it's reputation. Gas milage is always near 20 mpg.


Suggested Improvements

Defects should be corrected by GM.

Review

Took delivery in Oct. 1999 of 2000 LeSabre -- have driven without a single problem - milage outstanding. Averaging 28 mpg combination of country and highway driving on regular gasoline. Not unusual to drive 500 or more miles between refueling when on long-distance highway driving -- averaging over 33 mpg. Driving is a sheer joy with putting key in ignitiion and no headlights or windshield wipers to turn on.


Favorite Features

Outstanding gas milage with regular gasoline. Rain sensitive windshield wipers and automatically dimming mirrors. Radio controls on steering wheel. Grand touring suspension makes all the difference in the ride.


Suggested Improvements

Improve comfort of bucket seats -- eliminate note pad writing surface from arm rest.
