You are in the Buick LeSabre
What is this discussion about?
Buick LeSabre, Sedan

I think you will really like the Lesabre. In your entry you said you paid extra for side air bags??? They are standard equipment--at least on my 2000 Lesabre Custom (front seats). Also I have never heard of a "no haggle" Buick dealer--Around here that is almost always a Saturn dealer. Here in the Oklahoma City area Lesabres are discounted $3-5000 below manufactures suggested price on the window sticker. Has anyone else experienced no haggle Buick dealers? Anyway congratulations I think you'll grow to love the LeSabre.

The No- haggle dealer that sold me the Buick is also a Saturn Dealer at a different Traverse City location. He also has a Pontiac/GMC and Chrysler Dealership that he runs the same way. Service for all but the Saturn is done at the Buick store. The local rebates on the Buick are $3000 from GM. This dealer discounts down from there to about $100 - to$150 over invoice. He shows you the Kelly Blue Book for your trade but, if your trade is exceptionally clean and he wants it for his lot he ups it. I receive the GM discount (GMS) priceless the $3000 rebate which ended up at $20452 plus tax & title fee. The side air bags are listed as option AJ7 for$350 MSRP. I wonder it these were standard in early production. I understand that vehicle content was reviewed and in some cases standard equipment was made optional. This was a fresh car built in March 03 at the Orion Township Michigan plant. I added a beige pin stripe about 1/2" wide that sits in the grove below the side rub strip. The pin stripe follows the grove all the way around the car. The beige stripe on the Ming Blur is distinctive and I can find my Buick anywhere. Enjoy the ride.

Just getting back to car shopping after a couple of months diversion. Thanks for all the help and good answers to my previous post on 2003 LeSabre Custom options. One more question - does anyone know whether there's room for a full size spare in the space where the "Limited Use" spare is stored.

I read on a car-related website that a LeSabre Ultra, supercharged, is coming in 2004. Hope that's true. Might bring more youthful buyers into the Model.
Add some good colors, like the bright Crimson Red with chrome wheels, and it's going to bring down the average age of the buyers and bring more people in. So many of the colors are, well...., bland. And the same colors are there year after year. There's more to life than sand brown and silvers!
Look at the LeSabres lined up in a dealer's lot, then look at the Accord's colors.

Regular size tire is several inches to large in diameter and width to fit in donut hole. Why would you want regular size spare? I have used donut spares many times at hyway speeds and find no problems. I like the added space that a regular size spare used to take up. I have a 1993 Fleetwood Brougham with a regular size spare and I don't like it. Takes to much room and is very heavy and awkward to remove, and install. IMIDAZO/97---I agree with you on the lack of striking LeSabur colors. I think it would help Buick broaden their owner base. Anyone have slight gear noise at 29 - 30 mph? It does not seem to be getting louder after 2000 miles. I'm not sure I want a technician tearing things apart chasing a noise. Enjoy the ride.

I'd love to see it in a metallic british racing green with the optionally alloy wheels----sharp

British Racing Green on a LeSabur. Maybee add a British flag on the roof. That would be a hoot.How about real wire wheels. Enjoy the ride.

Have you seen the Jaguer sedan that looks very similar to the LeSabre? I wish I could recall the model. Similar from the side, rear and front.

Its the 2003 X type Jaguer

I'm sure Jaguar would be mortified if their motorcars were compared to Buicks! (And maybe a few Buick owners as well!)
