1998 Buick LeSabre Custom Review

1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought car new in June, 1998. The first major problem was the intake manifold at 96K. $1700 later, I was back on the road. Great highway ride and very stingy with gas avg 24-25 mpg. Trans gave way at 212K had it replaced for $1400. Then I decided to have the rusted out d/s rocker replaced for $300. P/S rocker has only a little rust. Had several other issues obviously, but nothing over $700. Thankfully, I have an honest mechanic who performs service only when needed. Engine still running great at 226K with mostly highway miles. Security light came on..not worth it to fix. Left turn signal indicator needs to be manually turned off. Minor problem. Change own oil at 3-4K. Drive it easy.
Favorite Features
Easy to reach oil plug and filter. Comfy bench seat. Had foam replaced at 160K. Easy to read dash. Easy to operate radio with steering wheel buttons. All power items still working. Roomy trunk. Great ride even with load.Great mileage. Handles nimbly. Doesn't attract attention. Nice interior light.
Suggested Improvements
Intake manifold, common problem with this car. Should have been recalled. Rocker panel rust, yes! D/Seat doesn't go back far enough for tall drivers. Cup holder on elbow rest is junk, would never risk using it. Headlamps fogged up from heat, safety hazard, had to replace. $$$. Great car O/A.
