2003 Buick LeSabre Sedan Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've been relatively satisfied with my LeSabre which had 21,000 miles on it at purchase. Nothing rides like a LeSabre and its got get up and go. The rounded trunk makes backing up deceptive. I'm 3 ft further away than I think consistently. Heater takes too long & I'm at my destination before the car is comfortably warm... 15-20 minutes on a 28 degree day. The car has just turned 43,000 miles and the A/C went out. Mechanic called today and has to replace the condenser @ $426.00, due to a leak. Suburban driving gas mpg is lousy even for a big car 15-16 mpg. Great expressway mpg, 30-33 mpg. Tuned correctly, the LeSabre has a great radio and speakers are of Bose quality.


Best Features

The velvet ride.


Worst Features

Front passenger seat belt skimpy across the thighs. I read where Buick will give you an extender free of charge, but don't know how long that is good for. If its still free, it beats ending up in a repair bill if something is wrong with it. Driver side seat belt is fine.

2003 Buick LeSabre Sedan Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This was our third Buick in a row. An '86 LeSabre we tried to wear out and couldn't, and a '95 Regal that was still going strong at 180,000 when we sold it. The 2003 replaced the Regal in 11/05. It had 34k, was in excellent condition, and bought from the proverbial "old lady". It is a comfortable, quiet road car. My wife drives it about 13k hwy mi/yr and pampers it. Trouble began in 1/07 at about 60k mi. Had to replace lft rear window regulator, then the rt one 4 mos later, then the lft one again 30 days later. 4/09 both dr latch/sensor assblys on rt side. Today the lft rear latch/sensor. Total so far $1245 for items VERY POORLY designed and built. THIS WILL BE OUR LAST BUICK!!


Best Features

3.8L V6. Good power and decent fuel economy (26.5 Avg) for so heavy a car.


Worst Features

GM needs to support their product better if they expect to retain customer loyalty. My experience is not uncommon according to many mechanics.

Review

I recently purchased the 2003 LeSabre with 74,000 miles on it. It is a great car with a lot of features, however, there is a problem with the air suspension that I thought the dealer had repaired, but after driving it while the suspension is still not right. I'm going to see if I can change the suspension to a non-air to see if this will work. Other than that the ride is great and a love the way the engine sounds.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the passenger side mirror that tilts when you back up to show how close you are to the curb.


Worst Features

To have better suspension on the vehicle as repairs can be expensive.
