Runs good needs an oil change, cleaned up stereo works work great.

It has quite a bit of body damage. Inside and out. It has been wrecked but still runs pretty good. Check engine light stays on. Windows do not go down or up. Has CD player. Tires need to be replaced. Seats in the front are adjustable, inside liner has come half off. It is silver, 4 door, has inside lights and mirrors. It use to be an awesome car until it was wrecked. Damage was to the front passenger side. Lights all still work. Just needs the light cover and some damage to the passenger side front fender.

What I like most of the room in the back seat for my kids.

Great vehicle. Very roomy in the backseat. Has a very smooth ride. I have a 2001 model so it is pretty old but still runs well. No real problems. It does need to be jumped every once in awhile. The seats have really good cushioning and they are very comfortable. Interior is nice. Not sure of the mileage. It is a tan color on the inside and outside. It is has a/c, radio, and ashtray area. Overall it was a good buy for 200$. I am okay with it.

- Angelina C

The Volkswagen this car is a great car to use all the time it's very reliable.

Well I barely have problems with my car but when I do I get it fixed I have a Malibu ss from time to time it can get messed up but the thing to do when that happens is get I fixed right away, some of the performances that the my vehicle can do is it has its own navigation system already in it great amount of speed. The comfort is ok not all that but decent. Well that all I am going to say bout my car so hope you find the car of your dreams.

How you car is supposed to run.

Car gets great gas mileage but is lacking in overall comfort. It definitely needs an update in the seat style as well in the dash controls. I am disappointed in how the vehicle handles itself on an uneven road. The suspension and shocks are unable to withstand the simplest bumps. But on a positive note, it makes a great family car. There's always room for 3 car seats and plenty of legroom for all of the passengers.

- Debbie P

This is a good family car.

It a good car. I did have some problems with it overheating. It blue a head gasket. The trunk leaks. I went through a lot of tires. I do not know why it did that. The side mirror keeps falling off. I have had to replace it 5 or 6 times. Other then that the car has been a pretty good car. I would tell anyone who wanted one that they are a good car.

- Barbara H

The car is running well enough.

The car runs fine. The door needs repaired but besides that the car runs smooth. It can be better with a little work. It is getting to perfection every step of the way. The ceiling is falling a little. The tires have been replaced a few times but what car has not, the things that is being done to the car is to improve the quality of the vehicle.

- Tina S

My car is very roomy, especially in the back and the truck is really large.

I have had this Buick for almost 10 yrs. No major repairs, just minor things that are to be expected. It is been very dependable. My brother has the same machine and model car except his is a 2002. . . Our only complaint is we both had a little trouble with the electric windows. Other than that I have no complaints whatsoever!

- Dorothy L

My most dependable car ever.

This is a very dependable car. I have had really no problems with this car and I bought it used with a little over 200 thousand miles on it. I have put new tires on it and had to replace the battery and I believe that is all I have done with this vehicle. Has a 3. 8 motor the motor that last forever. I like my Buick.

- Deborah S

Generally a good car with a few problems.

Uncomfortable seats, heating buttons for seats do not always work, air bag light stays on when weather is cold, otherwise, it is a good car. I like the buttons to lock and unlock the doors and the trunk. It had hail damage when I bought it. Also, there's a dent on the passenger's side by the door.

- Elizabeth C

Consistently reliable car

I have found this car to be consistently sturdy and reliable. Even though the car is fairly old, we have had very few issues with how it works. Parts are easy to come by because of the type of car that it is. I feel safe driving my children around in this car, and it does well in winter weather.

- Bethany W

It is a tan sedan, with very comfortable seats and a strong exterior.

It is a reliable car. It is at 230, 000 miles and I still haven't had any problems with it. I have gotten in a few car accidents with it, but any time it is been dented, it pops back out and basically fixes itself. It is seats are very comfortable and it is great for taking road trips in.

- Lexie D

It's a roomy for the whole family.

High miles. Power windows needs a set of tires. It is roomy and good on oil needs Freon also need a key to unlock the doors but have a button for the trunk. Has a very small crack in windshield put whole new oil lines in two years ago I only put 10, 000 miles or less on it in a year.

- Sandra H

The best Buick is the leasable.

The Buick lesabre is one of many vehicles I have owned and this is by far the roomiest of all. It rides super smooth and has never given me any serious issues. If I was to suggest a make and model of vehicle for reliable lift or a first time vehicle it would definitely be this one.

- Dustin C

Reliable, but less than perfect.

My car is extremely reliable, however, with time, it has begun to become susceptible to wear and tear such as a leak in the steering fluid system. It has great fuel efficiency, though the alignment is consistently getting out of whack and my fuel gauge broke several months ago.

- Jess G

Good on gas , roomy, comfortable seats.

I bought it used and had to do some work on it. I like that it is mid size which makes me feel safer than small car. Comfortable seats and roomy. I dislike the idea that it doesn't have some new technology such as backup screen so I can see where i'm backing up to.

- Terri B

Good and faithful 2001 Buick car.

My car lasts a very long time before it needs repairs and when there is a repair needed it only cost a few hundred dollars. Its ok on gas as well. The parts are fairly cheap to replace and the labor isn't too bad. Miles per gal. Could be better but overall it's ok.

- Shanna W

The most important thing others should know about my car is that it gets me from point a to point b.

I like the car because it was gift from my husband's uncle because it had been wrecked. It drives well and helps us to get around. My complaints is the dash pad curled up and we have had to have the windows fixed because they broke and would not go back up.

- Carley G

The engines on these vehicles are their biggest asset. They never fail.

With a vehicle that is as old as the one I am driving, there are bound to be a multitude of complaints. However, I can truthfully say that I am pleasantly surprised at how well this car has held up through the years. What I dislike are the issues with rust.

- Mary E

The aforementioned dash and power window problems. It's darn near perfect IMO otherwise.

I love the size, ride, and reliability. I had that the power windows break (ALL of them) and that they used cheap glue so the dash pulls up. Other than that, my only complaint is mileage and that they don't make them anymore!

- CJ L

That it is reliable, it drives well and has a good engine that should last a while more

I like that my car is large and safe, but I hate the trunk and think next time I'll get a crossover. I wish my car were newer but that's an expense I can't afford, luckily my car has a large motor and has plenty of life left

- Jessica L

It's big, comfortable, and efficient.

This car looks good and runs well. It handles smoothly in all sorts of weather. The heat and the air conditioning keep the vehicle comfortable. Plenty of electronics add to the enjoyment.

- Pat C

It's old, but that's not a bad thing. I have bought Buicks since 1976.

I like it because it looks good & has a nice color. I love having AC, but it's not working right now & needs a new compressor. We had to get a new battery & shocks this year too.

- Mary G

It is old, and prone too minor breakdowns due to its age.

Runs ok,& gets me where I need to go. But is showing signs of its age. Three of the four electric windows have failed. The headliner is also coming loose from the interior roof.

- Elton H

It's a great car for comfort and reliability.

The car is very comfortable to ride in. Even though it is old, it drives well. Great car if you take care of it. Good gas mileage. Looks like a "Grandma" car but rides perfect!

- Michael P

It is reliable and that the gas meter does not work.

I like that it drives smoothly and does well with gas. It is also very comfortable and has given me very few and far between issues. The thing i dislike is that it is very big.

- Selene D

It's very clean and attractive car. Looks brand new and hardly any maintenance.

I purchased the Buick in July of 2010. Has large trunk area and is fully loaded. Excellent mileage and car still looks brand new and couldn't tell how old it is.

- Joel B

ran for a long time, and is still running. rarely has anything wrong with it either.

it's an old vehicle that has gotten me to where I need to go for a long time now. It's not very showy, but it's durable, and that's all I wanted from it.

- tim o

It's a safe and reliable vehicle.

I don't like that it's a manual transmission. It feels safe but that's only because the thing handles like a tank. The windows won't work right either.

- daymon T

The Buick Lesabre is an awesome and dependable family vehicle.

For the age of the car it is in excellent shape. This car runs great and gets pretty good gas mileage. Minor upkeep is all that is necessary.

- Tiffany F

It is 17 years old, but it is still a good primary vehicle for our use.
