Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Smooth and quiet
Cons: When yoy have t6o buy parts , they dont give them awayIt feels like your flooting down the road
Pros: The Heads up display, and the color of the car, the leather seats, love all of it!
Cons: No locking gas cap but that's minor.
Advice: You have to buy it used now like I did, but look for one with low mileage, garage kept, etc.The Buick Limited is the one to pick not the Custom. I bought mine used with less than 27,000 miles. Has every option except heated seats. Gas mileage is phenomenol-about 33 on the highway and 23 around town. I use the driver information gage to see how to best save on gas-when to accelerate and when not to. It coasts forever once you take your foot off the break. I love all the gages and different ways to adjust for comfort. The trunk is cavernous as well as the back seat.
Pros: Quiet strong engine and front wheel drive
Cons: Raggedy power windows
Advice: Spring for a computer diagnostics run. Sniff for mildew. Ask how many times the windows have blown out.The power windows on this model are made with a faulty regulator. Expect to spend $400-500 for each replacement. I bought this car used, and it had a distinctive musty odor. No doubt from the last owner whose windows must have failed and let in the rains. I have used many bags of DampRid to get out that funky smell. The center console is way too big and 'plastic' feeling, and the back seat legroom is miniture. Great things about this Buick- the stereo, the antenna, nice woodgrain trim and heads up display. Leather seats are comfy upfront for a bigger person. A lot of people ask what colour my car is. At first, I thought somewhere between brown and silver. Another friend said it was 'pewter.' I finally decided that it is exactly the colour of a cellphone.
Pros: The heated front seats.Heads up display in the windshield. The cost the vehicle over all
Cons: The XM radio. No lock on gas cap
Advice: If you can go with the Celebration package do so.This is my second Buick Limited, but the Celebration Package is the way to go. White-Gold is nice 2.On Star with the phone is very useful. Love the ride.I get about 26 MPG. So far no faults only 1,900 miles. Fun to drive.
Pros: Thankfully, the looks of the LeSabre havent changed since I owned my 2000 Limited. The White-Gold/Flash paint adds a pearl-like essence.
Cons: Driver's head room in my vehicle is inadequate if you're over 6' 2'
Advice: Great car! This is my second Limited. This has all the Celebration bells & whistles. The acceleration of the 205 HP engine is great. Buy the Celebration issue.The 205 HP engine has all the power I need. I find the road noise has been reduced since I owned my 2000 model. The 16 inch tires hold the road very well...cornering is excellent in my opinion. I chose the leather bucket seats, which are very comfortable, and seem to reduce driver fatigue. Oh, yeah...my wife's favorite feature is the heated front seats on a cold Oregon morning (the seat back is heated as well as the seat), while I particularly like the 'heads-up windshield display'. Maybe an old jet jockey appreciates it more than most.
Pros: Changing radio stations with the steering wheel controls! It's a blast.
Cons: Nothing to dislike!
Advice: Buy it!!!!!!!!!I did alot of comparison shopping around online and it really paid off! I absolutely LOVE my new Buick Lesabre Custom 4dr! This car has everything a Lexus or a Lincoln has without the hefty pricetag. It has the roomiest interior and the best stereo of anything I've ever driven!
Pros: comfort of the interior
Cons: The gas cover does not lock
Advice: Purchase the limited with the extra featuresI purchased the LeSabre Limited with the Celebration Package. I like the ride. In this vehicle I have the stabiltrak which I find responsive when I drive when turning and maneuvering the vehicle. In my Buick Lesabre Limited 2000, I have the Grandtouring package. They are both very good. At the present time I haven't find any major faults.
