1996 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

After 105000 miles, we have solved most of the problems with our 96 Buick. The worst problem has been the suspension in the rear. The ride in the front seat is fine. But the rear seat bottoms out and is a very rough ride over the least little bump. I returned the car to the dealer with no solutions for the rear suspension. We also had to replace all the tires three times within five years because of the suspension. We were finally told to have the tires rotated every 6000 miles( by a tire dealer) to solve this problem. Also problems with the engine light.


Favorite Features

Good gas mileage on Highway, 28 to 30 miles average.


Suggested Improvements

Needs to be higher off the ground. Have to crawl in and out of car. Rear suspension needs big improvements.

Review

I drive this car 7,500 miles/year and I'm glad I don't have to spend any more time in it. The leather seats are uncomfortable after more than 1 hour. At 60k the transmission started to hesitate on 1-2 shits. Trans. still working at 86k, but wondering how much life is left. Have been plagued by constant A/C issues. Some stupid little plastic part that controls where the "air" comes from is now on its 3rd replacement. Nothing like having the drivers side getting A/C and the passengers side getting heat. I have now replaced all 4 power window regulators...twice. Gas mileage is not great. 14 city/21 highway. My Crown Victoria was a much better car.


Favorite Features

audio and A/C controls on steering wheel. Big trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Quality build and quality materials. The car just feels cheap and cheaply put together. Dealer service has been perhaps the worst that I have ever experienced.

Review

We like the quite spaciousness of the interior without the bulky feeling of some cars in this class. It's a car we love to take for a evening drive... with room for friends. A very nice car but inconspicous car.


Favorite Features

Comfortable and quite. Great sound system with controls on steering wheel. The copilot loves the abilty to control passenger side heating/cooling.


Suggested Improvements

Shift lever is a bit stiff. Outside edge of seats are a bit high, making it awkward for a shorter person to exit the car.
