This car is my 10th car and it's a good solid car. In the past I've had Camaro's and Mustang's, however those don't compare because they're sports cars, but this car is a good fit for the daily driver. It runs great, and it feels like you're floating with the dynaride system. The only problem I've had with the car was installing a new tranny. I bought the car with 54,000 miles on it from an elderly woman who never peaked past 45mph and the first few expressway times I blew the tranny at 80mph. I installed with labor $1000. I'm not a big fan of the exterior looks, a little outdated especially being young and good looking like myself so I may buy a convertible for the summer
CD player with the volume on the steering wheel. Dynaride system, roomy, performs well and good gas mileage, chrome accents are nice
Improve exterior lines. I have a tan/gold color, I've probably seen about 1000 of them in the past 5 days and they all look the same. I may start a LeSabre club to gain awareness. I might throw some chome wheels on it
Work, drive, and family vacation for several years. Did regular service maintenance and car responded with no disappointments and no bad surprises. Very satisfying car with excellent reliability, durability, workmanship and gas mileage.
Ride comfort, roominess, control features, huge trunk, gas mileage, exterior paint. I like the smooth, roomy, reliable Buick rides. Feeling of heft and safety without giving up gas mileage.
Mmmmm can't think of any. My wife thought it looked like an old folks car but I thought it looked fine myself.
The 3.8liter engine has been GM's best kept secret. Who would have known that such a large car would give such great car mileage on the highway? City mileage is average for a car this size. This Buick has been among the most reliable GM vehicles I've ever owned. It's too bad that this old fashioned technology is going by the wayside as Buick tries to attract a younger crowd. I'm in my forties but I guess my taste is more conservative and don't look for fast cornering cars but very comfortable and always it always feels like a safe car.
Reliabililty, highway gas mileage, comfort, low insurance cost, conservative.
Interior components should be more durable (decals flaking, center armrest replaced multiple times and under recall).
I just purchased a '97 Buick Custom
LeSabre with only 35,000 miles. I'm a
big guy (6'5") and was tired of being
crammed into my Toyota Camry (a nice
car, but not built for large people).
I've owned the car for a week now and
hope to have it another 5 years at
least. It's comfortable, roomy, gives
a great ride, and mechanically appears
to be solid.
Classic body style; roomy interior,
comfortable ride with plenty of power.
The radio is a little weak ... and
there's no CD player. Once I install
a CD player, I'll have created "heaven
