I adored the buick boat
By stimely1987 on
1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan
Bought the car 5 years ago from a family member.. had 113,000 now has 156,000.. Absolutely a tough car.. in five years i've only replaced a few sensors nothing over 50 bucks. Had to replace brake lines twice due to one garage being shady.. Water pump which was an easy fix. Muffler but PA winters are horrible and the biggest fix was the security system locked up. but it only cost 150 bucks.. Instead of paying 2 grand for GM to fix it, I had a good mechanic bypass the security system by cutting a few wires and regrounding them down with cheap resistors from Radio Shack.. No regrets having the buick I love it.. But she's getting old so it's time for a new one soon...
Captain's seat... All power in the 98 model and super comfortable.. Took it on a four hour trip and wasn't jet lagged in the least.. Passengers have complimented on how nice the ride is.. Also surprisingly easy on gas and if anything should go wrong i've had many mechanics tell me they're not hard to fix at all...
The exterior isn't extremely tough.. Rust happens quickly on rocker panels.. Few paint chips here and there also replacing brake lights and tail lights in these things are way more complicated than they should be.. Bulbs are about 50 cents but it takes awhile to replace them
