A good car but does have reoccurring problems that is fixed over and over

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Having recurring problems with left front bearing replaced several times. The passenger side window motor has went out twice within a year. It is very difficult to reach oil filter when changing oil. It has been a reliable car to get me where I need to go. There is a oil leak and air conditioner that does not work. The interior cloth on the top is falling down had to stick pin it up. The seats have held up good they are leather. Carpet on the floor is holding up good. The dashboard near the window has curled upwards. Cruise control works great.

- Arnold A

I love the reflective trim around the middle of my Buick.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

There have been problems with my white Buick in the past regarding the electric board (I think) which caused the car to shut itself down once I go past 60 mph on the highway. It would repeatedly do this. Then it simply started shutting down at any speed above 35. Me and my dad got it checked umpteen amounts of times before the electric board under the dash was changed out, then it started going back to normal. Haven't had a problem with it since then.

Overall Good Car with minor issues

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Car is spacious, great on gas and has a huge trunk. Upon purchasing the vehicle, all the windows except front passenger was not working. Took it to a mechanic and they couldn't figure out why. Have also had problems with motor overheating and unsure why. Keep the oil changed regularly and also just replaced the thermostat. All in all it is not a bad car.

- Sabrina W

Buick Lesabre a good care for comfort and travel.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

It is a comfortable riding car. It has cruise control and power everything. The CD player is a plus. It is reliable and practical. This car is practical for local and long trips. It has held up well with very little upkeep and has little body wear. It is good trips and local use. It has plenty of trunk space.

- Julie B

Nice car has nice interior but slightly outdated

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

It honestly works really well. The internet is a bit old and outdated. If you need a vehicle it gets the job done perfectly well. I've had issues with the brakes on multiple occasions. Windows needed to be fixed but it wasn't too expensive. It has heated seats that you can change to a preferred temperature

- Haley B

That it a safe reliable vehicle.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

My Buick is a good running vehicles with almost 200,000 miles. Average 22- 26 mpg. 6 cylinder with lots of power. It feels as you are floating down the road I also like to feel I have a vehicle around me not a tin can. It also has safety features to make sure that you are protected in case of a accident.

- Robert H

Car needs lots of work. Breaks are bad and windows dont work.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Has problems with brakes.Everytime you push them there is grinding noise. Sometimes it harder to stop. Windows won't go down on front. You have push it down and then pull them up.It's kind of crappy. Looking to buy a new one. It's a shiny tan car with lots of airbags. I have had it for 5 years.

Review on the 2003 Buick Lesabre

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Drives well overall. Handles well in the snow. 3 of the 4 window motors broke within 50,000 miles, however, this is the big complaint that I have for this vehicle. Overall, everything is good and well working for this car. The speaker system that came in the care works well. No complaints.

- Prefer A

It runs pretty good but requires of maintenance

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

It has electrical problems that make it hard to roll up the windows and such. The battery will cut off sometimes. And the battery to charge it is hard to get to. The service vehicle comes on for everything like fill up the tank or engine oil is low other than that it's a pretty good vehicle

- Salina F

Still rides like a dream will never give it up

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

My car Buick Lesabre has been my car since 2003 bought new. Have had very little repairs done. Except for tires oil changes and the standard fluid changes. Still get 20 miles to the gallon. Just an all around great car. Take it on long trips it has 165,000 miles and Still rides like a dream

- Michael P

A couch on wheels with a few minor problems

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

It's a comfortable ride. The seats are like couches so they are not hot on a warm sunny day. The brakes are not the best. Gas gauge is broken so I have to rely on odometer. Felt on the ceiling is falling off. Part of the dashboard is rising, not sure if it's from the heat or the water.

- Mark P

Car has a good appearance and a good price.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Although this is an older car it performs well. It starts easily on cold mornings. It accelerates quickly on the highway and rides well over all types of roads. Gas mileage is fair for a larger car. I would definitely buy another one. It has lots of room for passengers and cargo.

- Karl Z

Reliability and comfortability

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Since the purchase of my car, it has been nothing but reliable. On top of the reliability piece, the comfort is noticed by everyone who gets in. It has performed at a high level even with my long commute. I haven't had any big issues other than an Internal wiring problem.

- Matt W

Spacious, comfortable ride.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

The Buick Lesabre may have a reputation as being a slow, old-people's car, but, it is a smooth ride with plenty of power. The car is spacious inside and seats are comfortable. The heat and air conditioning is great. It may not be fancy, but it is a nice car to drive.

- Karen F

I like the way it holds the road.

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Very nice car. Handles well good on gas and has power! Not just your grocery go getter this car it's great for a cruise to the beach or wherever you wish to go. I really love this car. It has very comfy seats as well. You will love driving this car! Must drive!

- Cristy W

smooth ride great on gas, great stereo

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

love my car but my headliner has fallen down which obstructs my view in my rearview mirror. Something in the brake system has gone out, I can still drive it just no long has anti lock brakes. I have brakes like an older vehicle. Everything else is great

- Judy H

Good car not a lot of options you don't need

2003 Buick LeSabre Custom

Trouble with this window on passenger side. But other than that. Normal maintenance. Good gas mileage. Ride is comfortable. Did have to replace the dashboard. Doesn't use any oil. Little over 100 thousand miles. Has plenty of power. Good for long trips
