2005 Buick LeSabre
There are 15 user reviews for the Custom trim shown below
- Good looks, and very reasonable fuel economy for a car this size
- A little "soft" on handling. Seats not as comfy as the Park Ave.
Purchased As Used
I bought my 2005 LeSabre used 2 years ago with 168,000 miles on it because of the deal I got. I'm NOT sorry. I get good fuel economy (26-28mpg) which is good considering it is a full size car. I've had no problems with it so far though it does sip a bit of oil (about a qt between oil changes) Would I buy another? DEFINITELY! Only wish this model, custom, had come with onstar as standard feature....read morehide

- quiet, heated leather-a joy in our climate
- none at this time but am fearful of problems after 2006 CR review of 2005 lesabre
Since '87 have had 4 Bonnevilles, all gave good performance but wind noise was at times aggravating.
Bought a 2002 Le Sabre and realized a great all around improvement. Now have a 2005 Le Sabre ,very well satisfied but apprehensive after reading the just received CR 2006 new car issue. They red flagged buying a 2005 Le Sabre as a used car.
American auto industry are now offering many fine quality autos and while Japanese autos are also marketing quality cars I think CR is unfairly slanted. This has hurt our 'Made in America' tremendously....read morehide

- Great fuel economy, handling & nary a blind spot!
- Little bit of noise around door trim, but this is with high winds.
I also own a '91 that I recently drove cross-country last summer with 150,000 miles! It didn't skip a beat, and I drove between 65-70mph on the interstate @ 26mpg w/air-conditioning on full blast!
This is the first 3.8 litre, fuel-injected engine that is now in the newest line of Buicks. Never had a problem, change oil every 3,000 miles (which does come often!)
With Cooper radials, this oldy-but-goodie handles on the road just as nice as my new 2005. Remember the 26" snowstorm that hit the northeast mid-February? I had to drive in that down I-95, and did 40mph down in the fiercest of weather, white-outs and wind in this 15-yr old vehicle. Now it has 170K; the engine is still as strong as ever!
All my life I owned Fords; I will ALWAYS buy a Buick; my next vehicle will be an Ultra. Buick, don't EVER change the 3.8 litre....read morehide

- Steering vague, braking vague, big engine with little power

- fuel economy averages about 24
- Has vibration problems between 65 and 70 also gas pedal vibration
We bought this car in November of 2005, it had 14,000 miles on it and was a program car. This is the 4th Lesabre we have owned and they have all had vibration problems between 65 and 75 mph, sometimes even slower. We had a 98, 2000, 2003 and now 2005.
My wife likes the car because it is easier for her to get in and out of,
however, this has been a prolonged problem with these cars, and new tires and rebalancing did not help on the 2003. We are planning to take the car back to the dealership where we purchased it, if they can do nothing or deny the problem, then we will switch to another make of vehicle...very aggrevated with this... It is very annoying on the road, especially on a long trip....read morehide

- reliable (199,000 mi so far) economical(26-30 mpg) comfortable
- micky mouse cup holder. center armrest broke.
We bought this car in 2000 with 15000 miles on it. It now has 199000 miles on it using amsoil synthetic front to back and no mechanical problems at all withoil changed every 25000 miles. Runs smoth as silk and doesn't use any oil. It is a full size car that gives better milage than man compacts wth as good quality as imports with the exception of center arm rest and cupholder. We will buy another buick. Thank you General Motors. Tom Beaver, Locust, NC...read morehide

- Excellent handling, performance, fuel econmy, reliability, styling and ride.
This is my 2nd LeSabre (program car) in 5 years. Traded in a 2000 for a used 2005 that was identical right down to the color because I could not find any reason to change. (Wife thinks I'm wierd).
Looked at BMW and Lexus both times and they couldn't come anywhere near the value.
Our second car is an excellent 1999 Mercedes E430 and the Buick rides and handles just as well....read morehide

- Great car! Great Handling car and good fuel economy
Love my '04 LeSabre (my 4th Buick)! Also have an '03 Cadillac Deville which can't even come close to the LeSabre. In fact, my wife wants me to trade the Cadillac in for another LeSabre. The Lesabre is a great car. Don't change a thing.

- wind noise
I can't believe in the year 2005 Buick La Sabre has so much wind noise on the highway. After thirty years of buying GM cars this might be my last.
