Pros: I love the power seats best of all. Never had power seats before.
Cons: The seats seem hard to set on.
Advice: Just drive it.I was especially pleased with the quietness of this Buick. The handeling was excellent, very responsive. Surprisenly the 3800 engine is powerful and smooth.
Pros: 'Heads-up' Display, OnStar System, Heated Leather seats
Cons: Not as quiet as I would expect or like.
Advice: You will not find a better value for the price - Use the extra cash to go on a vacation trip.I've owned & driven this vehicle for 10 months. It has the comfort and ride of a car, the feel and performance of a SUV, and the seating/convenience of a minivan.
Pros: Interior quality and the Monsoon high wattage stereo system.
Cons: Somewhat a little mundane on exterior styling.
Advice: Sure you could get that BMW or Audi but for the money this car has much more value. I really didn't need a $500+ monthly lease payment. I have better use for my money!This is my second Regal GS. I previously had a 1999 Regal GS. I considered the Maxima SE but found I got a lot more for the dollar with the Regal. Excellent car and I am only 36 years old so forget the stereotyping of Buick buyers.
Pros: Steering wheel controls and driver's information center.
Cons: Position of the anchor points of both front seat belts.
Advice: Do not expect superior gas mileage. We average 23 mpg highwayI must say that this is the FIRST vehicle I've ever purchased that did not have to be returned to the dealer to adjust minor and/or major defects. We have a 1992 toyota Camry that when purchased new, had to be returned to the dealer at lease 6 times within the first 2 months to correct a recurring brake problem. The LeSabre now has 3000 miles on it and we have noticed nothing wrong! We will be taking it for an oil change in a couple of days and this is the first visit to any shop. The fit and trim quality is excellant. Much better that you would expect from and American car. We are very pleased with Buick in general. This is the second one in our driveway now.
Pros: Radio supression
Cons: Thumping in the rear suspension
Advice: It's all good!Great in snow. Fun to drive - even the teens like to drive it!
Pros: Horses are there when needed.
Cons: Distance is too great between arm rest and steering wheel.
Advice: Drive hard for a deal with your retailer. Let them know your considering other cars first.Steps up to the plate and delivers power, performance with looks and comfort. It's got the whole package at a pretty nice price too.
Pros: BUCKET SEATS
Cons: WEATHER SEALS ON REAR DOORS
Advice: ADD THE EXTRA OPTIONSTHERE IS NOTHING THAT SETS THE APPEARANCE OF THIS VEHICLE APART FROM PREVIOUS YEARS. THE COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE MAKES UP FOR THIS. DUE TO THE COST OF THIS VEHICLE IT IS WELL WORTH ADDING THE EXTRA OPTIONS. IT WILL BE FIRST ON MY LIST OF NEW CARS TO CHECK OUT.
