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.

Favorite Features

comfortable ride - when it rides.

Suggested Improvements

Serpentine belt was designed by a nut job-have to take the motor mounts off. There's a diagram in owner's manual after you've spent hours trying to figure it out.
