Review of the 2004 Buick LeSabre

  • A crowd-pleasing large sedan that offers space, safety and surprisingly good mileage in a high-value and economical package.

  • Pros

    Room for six, excellent mileage from V6, smooth ride, huge trunk, solid crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Dated interior styling, can be slow when fully loaded, no split-folding rear seat.

  • What's New for 2004

    The LeSabre remains largely unchanged, with new colors and a few new options like rain-sensing wipers the only notable differences.

Junk

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought a lesabre a few years ago, it was used so I didn't expect it to be in perfect condition but it was in pretty good condition none the less. After driving it for only a couple of months the transmission started acting up so I took it in. The transmission had to be replaced and they actually had to install it twice because the first one was "defective". Two years later and only 50,000 miles later I had to have the transmission replaced again. It seems as though the transmissions they chose to install in this model are just expensive junk. Other little things have been breaking down since then, ball joints, blower motor for the heat ect.

The money pit

Vehicle: 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I many years in driving cars and working with the, I've never seen a money pit like the Buick LaSaber. It has caught on fire three times. while I'm driving on the freeway. No accessories can be used or you will have to run for your life. We've been always a Buick fan...until now. Never again will we buy, rent, or as to lend a Buick. GM...RIP.

Bad gm

Vehicle: 2004 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Nothing good to say except the seats are comfortable. Other than that its a money pit. Replaced window regulators, heater core, thermostat and the motor runs bad with no computer codes and engine diagnostics show fine. Gas milage is 26 at best. Motor lacks power to be one of GMs best.

My 2004 Buick LaSabre LTD is a nice car overall. It has a very nice ride and very good gas mileage (29-31 MPG Highway). My biggest complaint are the split-bench leather seats. After 2 to 2.5 hours in the seat your rear end gets mighty sore. You wouldn't think so when you first sit down on the seat as it is well padded. I had trouble with the dual climate control system. The driver's side quit working and was cycling hot air-cold air-hot air, etc. The car drives nice going straight but very poor at any kind of spirited handling. I find the car rather boring to drive but my wife likes it as it is really her car to drive. The LaSabre is a well equipped car with power everything.

Highway king

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Bought car in DEC. of 08 with 49,000 and have completed 5 family vacations. Usually 1500 mile trip. This car has had nothing go wrong with it. Normal wear and tear and that's it! I'm proud to own this American made car. My Buick is the highway King. These cars are going to be seen on the road for the next twenty years because the 3.8 liter engine just keeps cruising!




Not bad for third hand

Vehicle: 2004 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Not the prettiest design, but not completely horrible. Just a simple blue collar (as my boss likes to say) car. Because it's an American car, the used car price was better than buying a comparable but smaller Japanese family sedan. Only some minor problems, which I expect from American cars. The dash and radio console looked like it hasn't been updated since 1985. I saw a 2004 Honda Accord with more modern design. The driver side speaker blew out after a month I owned it. And a month later the gas gauge stopped working so I have to estimate when to fill up gas. No big deal. I will drive this car into the ground. As long as it keeps running I'm happy.
