Big car, great mileage
By Rich Bolamperti on
2005 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
My other car is a Hyundai Elantra I get about 22 mpg. The LeSabre is getting 20 mpg city. I drive the Hyundai harder but to get 20 mpg city in a car this large and comfortable is amazing. I love the split bench seat, me my wife and child can all sit in the front like in the old days. I have a plan. Buy a 2 or 3 year old Buick keep it until it is 10 years old, trade it in get another 2 or 3 year old Buick. Have a very small economy car to drive in town and for the longer commute. Drive it into the ground.
Great mpg for a car this size. Love the split bench seat and smooth ride. It is not too floaty like 1970's cars.
Bring it back. I see these cars all over. The most popular Buick by far. Put an inch or 2 of mush on the seats. I drove the new Buicks and those seats were too firm also.
