what a nightmare

1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan

Review

Ran fine for a year. Six months ago the plenium cracked and broke, head damage, $1,000 to fix. A month ago, explosion, crunch and a piston connecting rod was shattered (it's about an inch thick of solid steel - imagine the force of that explosion!,) pieces through the engine-$1200 estimated to fix. My husband decided to tackle it - car was entirely apart when we got the recall from Buick that fuel adjustment guage was defective. We found fuel in the vacuum lines & that little part caused this. Since car is apart & we bought $500 in parts to fix, don't want to tow it to Buick. RUN SCREAMING from this vehicle.

I (sort of) have 'egg on my face' for telling everybody, for the past ten or so years, that the LeSabre was probably the best car on the road. Well, the transmission is about to 'blow'.

First and Last Buick for Me

Review

The driver seat does not fit a tall body. Back support is too low, and the seat inhibits circulation. Despite meticulous maintenance this car has stranded me three times, on highways where it is 45-75 miles between towns. Transmission failed at 60,000 mi. ($2,000 repair). Manifold failed at 125,000 ($1000). Power steering bearing froze at 144,000, throwing the belt and leaving me stranded 45 miles out, on a Sunday, in winter. After five hours a super-honest country mechanic came,charging only $136 for the tow, the repair, and an oil change! Never drive without a cell phone if you own a Buick.

1998 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan

Review

the advantages are: cheaper than Japanese ones (avalon), very comfortable to ride, clean interior design and very fuel efficient GM engine: 3800. But the overall vehicle reliability is so so. I experienced lots of troubles from 53000 to 86000 miles range (ABS, trans solonoid valve, engine gasket, ignition wires and coils, AC blower resitor, etc.)

Well Buick is great value and well a planed car. 3800 motor is strong and great mileage and the ride is great,and a lot of room and a big trunk.

Great Road Car

Review

After a recent 1,500 mile trip in two days, I can honestly say my husband and I were very comfortable the entire trip. Noticed another review for this model regarding losing coolant. Caveat, my son (an auto tech by trade) installed a new upper manifold in ours, specifically to PREVENT a future inherent problem with the coolant leaking into the engine. Buick corrected this problem in 1999 by installing both upper and lower manifolds. Like the car a lot!

Minor Problems overall OK

1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan

Review

Upon purchasing this vehicle at 81k I had to replace tensioner pulley. Now suspension is squeaking and car is loosing major amounts of coolant into engine (not external!)and this has caused it to knock. Not to mention paint peeling off center cap of wheels, and tail light bulbs falling out of socket. However, to be fair the car gets wonderful mileage and the room is very nice. Great acceleration.

Review

This 1998 Buick leSabre is the best car I've ever had. I've driven many brands and models , including Chrysler, Ford and GMC products over 60 years. I drove my first Buick in 1949. This has been the best.
