The Buick LeSabre featured at our auto auction this week is a roomy, full-sized car with at 3.8 L Series II Buick 3800 V6 engine that gives you 205 hp. This is a solid, reliable family car, one of the last of its kind, as the LeSabre was discontinued in 2005.
The Buick LeSabre had a good run. The first model came out from General Motors in 1959, one of three new models designed to rectify a serious slump in sales. It worked, and the LeSabre was named America’s Best-Selling Full-Size Car by Car and Driver until the last model rolled out. It was so popular, in fact, that the LeSabre may be best known as the car driven by Lucille Ball’s character in I Love Lucy.
In an independent study in 1989, the LeSabre ranked number one for quality among respondents. That’s especially important to note in a model like the one on offer at our auction, which has clocked a smooth 118,956 miles in the decade or so since it rolled out of the factory. The model’s name – Le Sabre – is French for “sword,” and that’s an apt name for a vehicle that will cut through the city getting 20 mpg and cruise along the highway at 29 mpg. Not bad for a 2005 model.
