1985 Buick LeSabre 5.0 V8 from North America
A car that out performs it's standards
The car's exhaust was totally rusted out.
All, but one of the brake lines had to be replaced.
I am 16 and my first car is the 1985 Buick LeSabre. My friends make fun of the cars size. but I know when there are looking for a ride the come to me.
The brake lines should have never needed to be replaced, but sat in a shed for a few years.
The cars seats are awesome. The sound from the stereo beats mosts of my friends cars which are all in the 1990's.
I would not switch my car for any other used car.
15-18 miles per gallon is not the best, but I could do worse.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have had my 85 for three years now and she's holding up great. I wouldn't trade this car for any new car that's for sure. $35.25 for two-year registration! Recently I had the windows tinted and I got a system put in. Pioneer Premier CD/WMA, MP3,AAC head unit with Infinity 4X6 2-way plate speakers up front and Infinity 6X9 3-way speakers in the rear deck with a Pioneer 6-CD changer. I had a 2-channel 400W amp and 12" subwoofer put in too. Bumps real nice. Much better than the factory "stuff". You are lucky to have such a great car, especially for a first vehicle! Great find. Take good care of it and it will take care of you, trust me. BTW, my first car was a 4-door 1983 Olds Delta 88. It was only a V6 with 2bbl carb, but it was nice. Another thing, you can't go 10 miles on empty with fuel injection!
