Cruising with Coleman

The next time you see a 2002
Buick LeSabre cruising around
campus, you might want to look
twice. It could be University
President Mary Sue Coleman.
In her bronze-colored, full-
size sedan, Coleman enjoys the
comforts of beige leather seats,
power windows and locks and
a four-speed automatic trans-
mission.
Coleman brought the car
with her from the University
of Iowa when she became the
University of Michigan's presi-
dent in August 2002. Although
Coleman has driven the car for
six years, it has a meager 21,000
miles on the odometer.
Coleman doesn't use a GPS
system or a satellite radio tuner,
but the car does feature a CD and
cassette combo system. And if
the radio is on, it's usuallytuned
to Michigan Radio WUOM, 91.7

FM, Ann Arbor's national public
radio affiliate.
"We are thrilled that we are
the number one button on Presi-
dent Coleman's radio," said Ste-
phen Schram, Michigan Radio's
director of broadcasting. "When
I talk to Mary Sue, she feeds
back stories from the radio, so I
know she's an avid listener."
While Coleman drives her
car to work, her LeSabre can
usually be found parked in the
Thompson Street parking lot.
Most days though, Coleman
walks to work from the Presi-
dent's House on South Univer-
sity Avenue.

spokeswoman Kelly Cun-
ningham, Coleman has never
received a parking ticket
throughout her six-year tenure
in Ann Arbor.
The road test of the. 2002 Le
Sabre conducted by Consumer
Guide Automotive praised the
car for its "ample passing power"
and automatic-transmission
performance, while decrying
the car's poor fuel economy and
rear-seat comfort.
The LeSabre was named "Top
Car" in the $20,000 to $25,000
price range by the American
Automobile Association for two
consecutive years, and won
Good Housekeeping's "Women's
Automotive Satisfaction" award
four years in a row.
According to Cunningham,
Coleman is a lifelong Buick
owner and loves the LeSabre.
