1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan

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.

Best Features

I like the interior and exterior styling,color, and amenities. Upholstery,car body and paint stand up wonderfully to severe desert environment.

Worst Features

Motor/transmission needs to be more reliable. Seat needs more adjustable back support. Try to find extra headroom some way other than settling the driver's derriere into a hole, then building up the front of the seat so it inhibits circulation.
