Default Guess what THIS is about?

There'* a '95 LeSabre Limited with 77k miles in the paper for $3800. Should I jump on it? How'* the 3800 in those things? Are they like the '94 Bonnies? I know they still have a Series I in them. Well? Opinions, observations, etc. are greatly appreciated, as always Thanks again to everyone who posts

Geez dude...

I actualy had a LeSabre of about that time frame before I got the Bonne. I loved that car!! I only had 2 problems with it. One was the flakey GM paint job (ugly, but minor) The other was the bolt that held together the MaxiFuse Relay Center. It was loos and corroded and would cause the car to lose all electrical and die. A wrench, a bit of clean up, and that problem was gone...

I don't know if the price is "right", but I'd grab it!!

Well, according to Kelly Blue Book, it seems a bit low, if she'* in Good condition or better. If she'* nice, I'll try for $3000

I looked at a lesabre-- as far as i know they use the same engine/trans combination and drive pretty similarily to my 94 SE... i think you would be happy. Nothin beats a big ol sleeper

95 N/A = Series II, so no it'* not like your 94

it'* the same thing as a bonnie, you know what to expect. I keep saying, when you find the car, you'll know it.

If it'* a good enough price, and you like the car/feel it is right for you, jump on it. But you will know when the right car comes along. You will feel it.

Comparing the Sabre to the Bonne -

"Buick" type luxury ride compared to Pontiac "sport"
Loved the wrap around Buick dashboard
My Lesabre had the 60/40 bench - prefer the Bonne buckets

Those are the major differences I remember. Other than that, it'* a Buick Bonneville

The one i looked at was advertised as a 95 (didnt investigate too much) but it for sure had a series one

From what I understand they are even heavier than Bonnies. If thats true I'd stay away.
