2003 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
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.
The velvet ride.
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.
