I appreciate your response. It has been 10 days since my first post. I have driven the buick a lot the last week and a half. I let my vehicles warm up in the morning and that seems to make a big difference for this buick. The problem has gone away. I think it just needed to be driven. The Lucas Transmission Fix seems to have done the trick. The car ... Read More
On my 2000 Buick LeSabre, my turn signals don't work at all, but the hazards work fine. It was my understanding there are two separate flasher control units under the dash, one for the hazards and one for the turn signals. So I bought a turn signal flasher unit. I can find one for the hazards under the dash but do not see one for the turn signals to save my ... Read More
Hello Everyone, What would be a reasonable time estimate to replace the flywheel on a 2000 Buick Lesabre with a 3.8L V6 and an auto tranny. The car is very well maintained and other than the damaged flywheel is in excellent condition. I am recovering from a significant back surgery to repair 3 crushed vertebrae and simply can not do this myself right now. I feel that it would take me ... Read More
You either have a blower motor that is not making contact or has gone bad or the other possibility is the blower control module which is the electonics that controls the blower motor speed. I have to check my service manual to be sure the nonautomatic air conditioning uses the blower control module which the dual control auto air does (the one with the digital temperature readout). The hush panel above ... Read More
>hood looking Can you pull it out from the cowl opening? >fan doesn't move Connector not making contact? Some have contacts that burn. Or the blower motor brushes have stuck in their channel where they slide. As they wear they don't move forward and lose contact. Try tapping up on the blower motor with a vibration from your shoe or fist while the key and controls are both turned ON. See ... Read More
No air when the blower is on. No matter the speed. I was able to get to the squirel cage, and it turns freely with my fingers. However, when I turn the blower on, it does not move. I noticed that there is a hood looking object that slowly covers the cage when I turn the blower on. It moves in a jerking motion until it covers the cage. I guess ... Read More
Can someone PLEASE tell me where to fine the (BCM). Also if anyone has any information on what my buick is going through I would be very grateful. --THANKS AGAIN--
UPDATE: I was tinkering with the vehicle this morning and found out that if I have the ABS box is unpluged. My horn issue seems to go away(It staying inguaged that is). Also if someone could please tell me where the (PCM) is located. My haynes manual says "under the right side of the dash" If someone could PLEASE be more specific of where there located I would be very grateful. ... Read More
2000 Buick lesaber ,3.8Lt ,140,000mi Hello, I have recently ran into a Problem that just bogels my mind. I drove my car all day mind you, went into a friends house and came back to the car (2000 Buick lesaber) and attempted to start it. It would not even turn over. No selections of the ignition switch would ingauge (key Pos 1,2,3). The lights illuminating the driver and Passenger door window ... Read More
2000 Buick LeSabre with 80k miles on it. At about 60k, the ignition coils went bad. Had the plugs, wires and coils replaced. Now at 80k, the ignition module has gone bad. Is this normal? Are these things related? Is there anything else I should be looking for?
I own a 2001 Buick LeSabre with 43,000 miles. I first noticed the transmission would sometimes jump a bit when switching gears at around 25-30 mph. This was a few months ago and it was not an every day problem. A dash light appeared about a month ago after a rain. I took the car to parts store and the employee attached a computer which indicated a Torque Circuit Converter or ... Read More
I have a 2000 Buick Lesabre with 65,000 miles on it. I have went through 4 Brand new starters and a brand new fly wheel. I had the starter shimmed but that worked for a shot time and now again when I start the car it makes a grinding noise like metal on metal and then starts mechanic says it has to be the starter or the fly wheel but i ...

I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre. The check engine light has been on for a while, and I was told that the MAF sensor needs replacing, but it would be o.k. to drive it for a while. This last week, the heater quit working, and it has been running hot (not in the red but once, but the gauge is a lot further to the right than it should be). Then ... Read More
I have a 2000 buick LeSabre and the headlights stay on for over 2 minutes when leaving the car. How do I shorten this time to 45 seconds.
I've replaced a right rear turn signal bulb twice in 2 weeks. After a few days, it starts the rapid flashing when I turn the right signal on. When it does this, the front bulb flashes and the rear bulb doesn't. Any suggestions or solutions? arky49
I own a 2000 buick Lesabre with 130,000 miles. Twice, once about 2 months ago and again today, I almost get to work and it starts to hesitate and buck and there is a shrill sound. I travel about 30 miles to work. I am able to park the car and work 8 hours then drive home with no problems. The first time I brought it to my mechanic he drove ... Read More
Hello: My disabled son is choosing between a 1998 Buick LeSabre with 83,000 miles on it in pretty good condition; we are getting it inspected tomorrow and will get a CarFax report as well. car is being sold by "Louiie's Cars" (not real name)... runs and rides well. Dealer wants 4995. The other car is a garage kept 2000 Park Avenue loaded with 107k miles sold by an elderly gent for ... Read More
I have a 2000 Buick Lesabre. The check engine light has been on for a while and I was going to take it into the shop this week. Last week, the car wouldn't start. I jiggled the ignition switch and it started. It worked fine for 4 days. Then one day it wouldn't start again. It will not take a jump. I jiggled the ignition switch and nothing. I took it ...

Right now we are using gas with ethanol in it. 85 Octane 18mpg City, 29 Hwy (Foothills) 31 (Flat) Car does NOT like this gas, it runs really rough on cold mornings with this fuel. 88 Octane 21mpg City, 31 Hwy (Foothills) 34(Flat). Car runs much smoother with this octane gas, and cold morning starts aren't as harsh.
This morning I had the service engine light come on - when I got home I hooked up my OBD 2 meter to the port and no codes showed. So I think I set one in the DTC computer. I have never had to access those codes. My Cadillac I hit a combination of on/off and scroll button up and the computer codes are seen on the speedometer display. I am ... Read More
I have a friend who has a 2000 LaSabre who would love to have a factory installed radio with a CD installed. Did you just call a Buick dealer and order one in? This would be an awesome Christmas present for him if so. Then he could just have Best Buy put it in.
hi 45bob57 i also have a 2000 buick lesabre that i have changed 7 motors and or regulators at present i have 3 of my windows wired up because i refused to spend any more money on these windows i did ask a dealer about a recall and was told there were none. if you have any info to share i would appreciate it. also my dash board is separating from ...

I have a 2000 la sabre limited, 170,000 miles. Great running car. With the rear windows, you can hear the motors run but nothing happens with the windows. Is this the regulator, cable, or what? Also, how difficult to fix? Additionally, my steering wheel lights do not work. I can get the switches out of the steering wheel but the lights look like little blue LED lights that are soldered to ... Read More
Just out of curiosity, I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre, I want to change the factory installed radio for another factory radio (like you did) with a cd player. Can I just upgrade from a non-cd radio with a cd player radio? Do I need some special wiring? The new radio will be a factory made (in case I can do that). Any suggestions?
Sounds like a bad starter wire connection to me. Sometimes if you clean all the connections and add a little grease they start better. Clean both the battery posts as well and add some grease there too. Finally, if that is not it, you could have a blown head gasket. As it heats up it expands and may be allowing coolant into a cylinder which will make it run rough or ... Read More
I have a 2000 lesabre as well. Indeed a good car. I have replaced every window motor in my car and I have replaced the drivers side one twice. The first one I paid $450.00 at the dealership. Now you can get them at www.powerupauto.com for about $65.00. They usually charge me about $30.00 to install at the dealership body shop. Other than the window motor problems the car has been ...

have 2000 lesabre with power windows problem. it seems that the window motors all working, but on 2 the cables either snapped or came loose. was hoping if someone has had similar problems, would love any info. to help with the situation. i called gm to see about recalls, but there were none. honestly my argument is i have owned about 6 Buicks the past 14 yrs. never, ever had windows ...

I have a '94 Buick LeSabre that idles very high and the speedometer doesn't work. One mechanic told me that "mice" might have chewed the wires up in the dash, but that would be impossible, since mice aren't in my car. The "service engine soon" light has been on since I've had it and I recently pulled the ECM out from under the dash and I am not sure how to ... Read More
I HAVE A 2000 BUICK LESABRE AND JUST TODAY I RAN OUT OF GAS WHILE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY...(MY GAS NEEDLE DOES NOT WORK)...AND WHEN I FINNALY PUT SOME GAS IN I NOTICED MY ENGINE LIGHT TURNED ON...ANY BODY KNOW WHY?
This has occurred twice. Both times were after a longer drive 80+ miles on the freeway. I stopped for gas and when I tried to start again, it started and ran rough, like it was not hitting on a cyclinder or two or flooded. I held the gas petal down, but that did not help. I had it towed to the Buick dealer and they let it sit overnight. When they ... Read More
I just changed the rear brakes and rotors. I first used a C-Clamp to compress the piston but then realized you have to turn them (I used needle nose pliers). I was able to turn them a couple of times, put them back on, depressed the brake, then turned it a couple of times more. They turned fairly easily, so I don't think I stripped the thread (if that's how the ... Read More
How do you get the door panel off?
2000 Buick LeSabre dies when driving or when stopped. Sometimes won't start for several tries; then starts; appears electrical; dealer can't locate codes; tried a new ignition switch and a new battery; problem still occurs; tried switching the ign relay in the fuse panel; tried switching the start relay in the fuse panel; none worked; any thoughts?
I just had to replace actuators in the drivers door, and the door behind the drivers door! Fortunately, I was able to do the work myself, saving the labor. List price on the parts was $650.00. They went out within a day of each other.59,000 miles on the '00.
Now you know why I am looking at the 2007 Toyota Camry. I think Toyota could even pull #1 in Sales this year ?? Done with Buick and 'maybe' General Motors (like a Whole Lot of Others). The quality just isn't there but it is with the Toyota.
Any coincidence that Toyota ia approaching #2 in sales?
Thanks classicbuff for taking time to answer my post. I will try your suggestion contacting the GM District Office...who knows - just maybe they might feel considerate. I went to NHTSA and there are a bunch of entries regarding the actuators on this model car. Enough, I believe, it is a Safety Issue and Buick should do a recall. Read about one person who was on their 7th replacement. Seems like ... Read More
You didn't say if you've had the car the whole time for the 50K miles? Is there a chance the earlier owner replaced struts and someone got the wrong ones? Unlikely... but? When I have time, I'll check my 03 manual for the ride height to measure to see if your car is at the right height. When the rear struts on my 98 weren't being pumped up, the rear sagged ...

Whoops! Here's the details................ Summary: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 3800 V6 (L36) ENGINES AND CERTAIN DELPHI FUEL PRESSURE REGULATORS, THE REGULATORS HAVE A MUCH HIGHER THAN USUAL RATE OF FUEL LEAKS. A LEAK CAN ALLOW FUEL TO ENTER THE INTAKE MANIFOLD THROUGH A VACUUM LINE. IF THE ENGINE DOES NOT START WHEN CRANKED, THE FUEL FROM THE LEAKING REGULATOR AND A MISTIMED SPARK CAN CAUSE A BACKFIRE.

I just purchased a 2000 lesabre with 58400 miles, from buick dealer. They offered a 36/45000 GM PP for $2600. I have been searching and reading information from forums to make my decision about buying this plan. I have until Feb 15th to buy the plan or loose the option offered to me. Any one who has experience with 2000 models, does it worth it?
Ok, so now we're in the right place, I like Buicks, don't get me wrong. It's wierd, but Olds and Buick were my two favorite GM brands. My last Buick was a 91 Park Avenue, and while I really liked the car, it did disappoint me in quite a few areas. Like the short in the Windshield Wipers where it would intermittantly turn on the wipers for no reason. But the ... Read More
My 2000 LeSabre has just about 50,000 miles on the odometer and is running like the day I bought it new. Keep it clean and maintained and you will love it too. Only problem was a leaky gasket at 12,000 miles which was replaced under warranty. Oil changes every 3000-4000 miles, new tires at 30,000 miles are the only maintenance items I have done. Good luck with your future Buick purchase. ... Read More
You're right, the last time Buick got an all-new car in the lineup was 2000. Since then all they've added are minivan- (a modified Aztek) and SUV- (a modified Bravada) based vehicles. Buick has had some great concepts recently but unlike Cadillac or Pontiac or Chevy, Buick has not done anything with them. Adding portholes to the Park Avenue was clever on paper but it's like putting a pretty bow on ... Read More
Bought my LeSabre in 2000, and it has been trouble free. Just want to comment that Buick really needs to do something yearly to physically set the new models apart from the older. My 2000 looks just like the 2004 and that is not the way to encourage new buyers. Look at the Century, it went to that body style in 1997 and it is still the same for 2004. Regal ... Read More
I'm describing a 90 degree turn from a side street onto a 60 mph highway under wet conditions. As you are executing the turn you also are attempting to accelerate from full stop to 60 under full throttle. Floor it and turn: The car will go exactly where you point it; it will hold the line precisely. It's fun. Obviously, you don't want to try this in heavy traffic! My point ... Read More
Not to change the subject, but I have owned several Lexus' and they are simply sensational. I am driving my first Buick which I bought new, a 2000 LeSabre which now has 105,000 miles on it. Considering the price, roughly half that of my Lexus, it has been a sensational "value". One problem, a serious water leak collecting on the driver side floor boards (front and rear). Dealer and body shops ... Read More
I think you will really like the Lesabre. In your entry you said you paid extra for side air bags??? They are standard equipment--at least on my 2000 Lesabre Custom (front seats). Also I have never heard of a "no haggle" Buick dealer--Around here that is almost always a Saturn dealer. Here in the Oklahoma City area Lesabres are discounted $3-5000 below manufactures suggested price on the window sticker. Has anyone ... Read More
I had a chronic dead battery problem when I bought my 1994 LeSabre in 2000. All of a sudden, no more starting....I took it to two different places; one changed the battery and the other changed the starter. Problem persisted. Then I did a little diagnostic on my own and found that at one time the glove compartment wasn't shut properly because of too much stuff and at the other time, ... Read More
I have had my LeSabre for just over three years and here is my pros and cons for what they are worth. 2000 Lesabre Custom with prestige pkg, leather package, 16" alloy wheels. Pro: This is a very nice car. My wifes Mom was dying in New Mexico and this constituted about 9 round trips from here in Oklahoma City (503 miles each way). On the highway it cruises 70-75 mph ... Read More
A year ago I had a problem with a dead battery on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Limited. If the car sat for two or three days the battery would be dead. I took it to the Buick dealer. The problem was with the underhood light. They had to order one. Since then I have not had a problem.
Yesterday, after I had washed my 2000 Buick LeSabre, I immediately put it in my garage and didn't use it until this morning. My problem is when I started it up this morning and put it in reverse and started to back up I got a very loud thunk noise from under the left front. It feels like something is stuck and then it loosens up when I back up. I ... Read More
I agree with imidazol97. I also have a 2000 Buick LeSabre limited with 42,000 trouble free miles on it. I have had no problems with my battery. I would definitely go to another Buick dealer and let them keep the car as long as it takes to find out the cause of the problem. It could be as simple as a loose wire somewhere that is draining the battery. Your car ... Read More
Our family has always bought Buicks and been Buick lovers until the purchase of our brand new 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited. We HATE this car due to mainly the constant dead battery problems. It is on its third battery and the car only has 18,000 miles on it. It also left me stranded in the middle of the street, downtown, on one occasion.(This problem did actually get fixed). The car has ... Read More
Yet another option to consider comes in between the standard tire, standard suspension and the Gran Touring Package. It is the 16" alloy wheels and tire option for the standard suspension. My 2000 LeSabre has this option and I think it kicks the handling up a notch but leaves a nice ride. And those 16" mag wheels are much better looking than the standard mags. I pump my tires to 32psi ... Read More
Hi everyone, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth about replacement tires and gas mileage. I replaced my original Firestone Affinity tires on my 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited at 30,000 miles with Michelin Symmetry tires. So far, (2000 + miles) they seem to be wearing very well. I have the 16 inch tires and the Touring Suspension. Concerning gas mileage, I think that the brand of gasoline you ... Read More
Have had our 2000 LeSabre Limited for the past 27K miles and 29 months. Not one iota of a problem. Did replace the 16" factory tires with Firestone whitewall Affinity's. Looks a lot better to me! Of course, I came into the car loving world when whitewalls were the "in" thing. I drive cars for Avis and that's what sold me on the Buick......any of the models are super drivers. However, ...

I am not crazy about the 16" generals, either. They pick up a tremendous amount of gravel and every few months, if I am bored, I pick them out with a screwdriver. I have Michelin X-ones on the Monte, they wear like iron, have good grip in all weather and are still just slightly noisy. I was thinking about the symmetry Michelin also as the replacement. I have broused in Edmunds ... Read More
Keeping in mind that one persons advice is only their opinion, I would say get the 2000 or newer model. It is not the "floater" that the older version was. Firmer ride but still a Buick. Most comments I have seen in road tests in magazines seem to think the "grand touring" suspension is jiggly (?). I have the 16" alloy wheel option without the gran touring suspension and think it ...

I have a 2000 lesabre with the same vibration, when in drive when stopped with the brakes on. I got the "can't duplicate the problem" response from the local Buick dealer and have not gotten around to complaining to Buick about the dealer's lack of performance. But I managed to cure the problem by running a bottle of fuel injector cleaner (by chemtool) in the gas tank. It must have been ... Read More
My 2000 LeSabre turned out to be a lemon but the laws are too restrictive; yeah, I can turn it in but they'll make me get another Buick and with the deduction per mile, I'm better off trading it in for another make. Problems? The kazoo sound is too infrequent to mess with; they could make it worse. Second, after a year, I noticed that the A/C sometimes wouldn't work. The ... Read More
Will have comments about Concert II sound in a moment for jb7227 (#580) and kcwolfpack59 (#582)--thanks to both. First some more general stuff. Thanks to y'all for many useful and interesting messages on this board. Owned a used '90 Limited from early '92 to late '93--drove it from 44K to 90K, loved it, especially the great interior look, the overall feel of the car, and the 3800 engine. Was away from ...

I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre with leather seats. The car is still under warranty. This morning I noticed the driver's leather seat has a small wear spot in one of the seams. Has anyone attempted to get a leather seat repair under warranty?
That aarp coupon is only good for 1000 on 02......2000 on 01 Lesabre. They came in a GM family Savings promotion last year not direct mail from AARP. plus 2002 GM rebate ! Woman still not decided! I can wait a bit..but I do want a new CTS ! I have a GM Caddy Repeat Buyer cert. also ! Good luck with your new Buick !.....Geo
Personally, after the problems I had with a suspension creak in my 2000 LeSabre that the dealer and zone service guy was unwilling to fix I sold it and won't buy another Buick. A year old Cadillac is the same price with a better warrenty and lots more for the money. People here are selling 2001 DeVilles for $26,000 with 28k. Who would spend the same amount for a LeSabre Limited? ... Read More
Does anyone else have a pronounced whine coming from the alternator, noticible until you shift into high? You can hear each shift, whine goes down as rpm's fall. I had a similar noise in my 1994 but less loud. The alternator seems to be working ok. Has anyone installed a new or rebuilt alternator because of this problem and has the noise gone away. I'll have this car for another 5 ... Read More
Ditto Ken's comments. I own a 2000 Bonneville, which is essentially the sibling to the LeSabre, and those of us on the Bonneville forum are also very pleased with our cars. If I'm not mistaken, the LeSabre is consistently GM's best-selling full-size sedan. It doesn't have the high-zoot appeal of the "imports" but for us practical, salt-of-the-earth, patriotic types, the LeSabre is a very appealing vehicle. Buy a Buick! It's built ... Read More
I have owned my 2000 LeSabre Limited with the Grand Touring Package since June of 1999. It has the Firestone Affinity tires. I have been completely satisfied with the car and everything that came on it. I have not experienced any vibration at any speed. I didn't even experience the "dreaded kazoo noise" which people used to complain about in these postings. When I bought this car I thought it would ... Read More
Considering a 2000 Buick LeSabre Limted with about 7k, Y56, 16" Affinity tires, leather buckets, console, traction control and HUD (not sure if it has heated seats). This car has never been titled and is still "new." In other words, the dealer apparently ordered the car and accepted it in about September of 1999. Allegedly, it was used for a demonstrator and one of their managers used it to commute from ... Read More
I'm having some problems with my 2000 Buick LeSabre air conditioning. The air conditioner intermittently blows out cool air, rather than COLD air. I took it into the dealer and on that particular day they couldn't find a problem. Anyone else had this problem?
This is Spindel. I meant to say my 2000 Buick Lesabre Limited. Spindel
If Mom and Pop like the size of the Crown Vic's interior space they will feel right at home in a 2000 LeSabre. The car is 14" shorter than a Crown Victoria and 4" narrower. Yet the interior space is within tenths of an inch in every measurement. Oh and you give up 2 cubic feet of trunk space--which on the Crown Vic is that big hole where the spare use ... Read More
Thanks for your glowing review of Buicks past. I suggest you spend some time in a 2000+ LeSabre or Regal GS before you start slamming the road manners anymore. I'm not expecting my LeSabre to keep up with a BMW 5-series through a twisting road but I also know that the Gran Touring suspension has alot more bite than you are giving it credit for. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. ... Read More
It's kinda like a rocking chair; in fact at speed the long stroke struts don't have enough umph to keep the tire in contact with road and evidently the tires will start to cup/flat spot.. My encounters with Buicks is only with three of them, all bought new; 87 Electra T-Type,92 Regal GS, and a 94 LeSabre. The 87 was my wife's car and I flat spotted all four tires on ... Read More
Andymsn: I've got a 2001 LeSabre Limited with every option except the engine block heater. Sounds like the car you are interested in is pretty much decked out the same way. If you decide to buy it, you'll love it. Here are my thoughts. As far as the Park Ave vs LeSabre question goes, I personally think the LeSabre is a better value. There used to be a pretty good gap ... Read More
An update. At 17,000 miles our Titanium blue 2000 Buick LeSabre custom with Prestigue Pkg and leather is doing great. It has several trips from OKC to Roswell NM under its belt (500 miles one way). Out on the open road it is hard to keep it on 75 because it just wants to go higher. We are in the midwest and speed limits are higher. It continues to pull a ... Read More
I'm responding to the mail about the uncomfortable seats in the 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. For what it's worth, I have a 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. I'm 6'4" tall and I'm able to raise the seat up to where it is completely comfortable. Over the last year I've taken several long trips and I believe the seats are the most comfortable I've ever had in a car and so far, in ... Read More
Does anyone have this problem? When you make a sharp left or right turn, there is a creaking noise in the front left side as the car rolls back on an even keel. There is also a creaking or cracking noise as you put on the brakes. My 90 and 94 LeSabres didn't have this creaking noise and the local dealer won't do anything because "nothing is broken" and "Buick won't ... Read More
I just finished reading the Auto Weekend section of the Washington Times newspaper, a section that appears every Friday. Lo and behold, on page E13, a review of the Buick LeSabre, under a heading which reads LeSabre isn't sexy, but it sells. I had a feeling right away that I wasn't going to like this article. I was pretty much right. The article was reprinted by The Times from an article ... Read More
I currently have a 2000 Buick LeSabre. The car currently has 7800 miles on it. I've changed the oil twice since purchasing the car in Jun of 00. Before the first oil change I drove about 2500 miles and I had used about 3/4 quart of oil. Between the first and second oil change I drove about 2500 miles and used a little over 1/2 quart of oil. I have driven ... Read More
I recently purchased a 97 Olds 88 LSS with the same 3800 engine and 4T60E transmission as you have. I no sooner drove it a couple of days when I noticed the surging under light throttle application just after the transmission went into lockup. Needless to say I was quite annoyed and didn't know what it was. I pulled it out of O/D and problem went away and noticed it didn't ... Read More
I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre with 26,000 miles. After it rains, my floorboard on the driver's side is very wet. Much more than I would drag in on my feet. Is there anyone else with this problem? How do I fix it?
the 2000 and 2001 LeSabres do NOT have seat belt adjusters for height and the free extension will not change the comfort level on your shoulder. When buick went to the "All belts-to-seat" design on the LeSabre in 00, I believe it was a mistake not having adjusters on it. I only sell them, I don't build them though. The reason your 94 had them was because the seatbelts were tied ... Read More
Quite a name there! You may want to check out the Bonneville SE as well - I bought a 2000 in January with 18K on the clock for $15,995. Most of these cars that are one model year old and have that type of mileage are former rentals. A check with CARFAX will tell you that - as on mine. Watch for cigarette smoke evidence - hard to get rid of. ... Read More
Jim: Nothing wrong with the previous generation of LeSabres. They're solid reliable cars with a great engine and trans. The styling and interior layout is a little bland for me. Buick really made an improvement with the 2000 models, inside and out. You won't go wrong buying one of these things. Of course, if you do, you'll bring down the median age of LeSabre buyers quite a bit. I'm 42 and ... Read More
I wanted to ask people's opinion on the LeSabre for my wife, son, and one on the way. The car gets great crash scores. The custom seems to comw with everything my wife "has to have". I have found a dealer that will sell me a used (2000) LeSabre for @ 17,500 with about 14K on the clock. He actually has several in different colors and they are all customs. I ... Read More
Not many posts in this forum; that isn't surprising since alot of the other forums are folks complaining about their cars. Not much to complain about in the LeSabre! The 3000 mile check went OK. Had a vibration above 65mph; turns out that one of the wheels was defective. Dealer replaced wheel and rebalanced all four tires just to make sure. No problems now. The dealer also gave me a 97 ...

Though I LOVE my 2000 LeSabre there are a few design items that I have minor gripes about. The front cupholder(s) built into the armrest will not let you carry big cups of coffee or soft drinks. And if you and a passenger in the front seat have cups with handles (travel mugs) they will both not fit in the holder at the same time. Small styrofoam cups and some medium ... Read More
My new Buick uses about 1/2 quart of oil every 1200 miles. I had and Oldsmobile with the same engine for 7 years and it used no oil. The Buick dealer told me it could use up to 1-1/2 quarts every 3000 miles and this was okay. Does anyone else have this problem?
My parents' 2000 Buick LeSabre has been stalling intermittently at low speeds and stop lights. The car currently only has 5000 miles and this is the second round of engine stalls. The earlier engine stalls occurred in Feb and March and were caused by a bad alternator, not charging properly at low RPM. The problem went away for a few months, but now it's back. And I doubted this time is ... Read More
(rhraasch): My 2000 Lesabre Custom with Grand Touring suspension has Firestone Affinity tires. The dealer found the two front tires out of round which they say is the cause of my vibration problems at speed. But I think there is more to the problem, because the vibration gets worse after time on the road, which implies the belts are shifting. The dealer said he could not offer me another brand of ...

I recently bought a 2000 Buick LeSabre Custom which has Firestone 16" Affinity tires on it. I'm not having any problems and I'm totally satisfied with the car; however, in light of the Firestone tire recall I was curious if anyone has heard anything adverse about the Firestone Affinity tire.

Bulletproof- thats what they claim. Ha ha. My 2000 with just over 18K on the clock puked out about 2 weeks ago. Very violent metal on metal screeching, the sounds of niagra falls for about 5 miles on the interstate and then it calmed down but shift quality was very poor. Barely made it home. Called Buick roadside assistance. Long long wait on hold. Finally they dispatch a tow truck and ... Read More
My 2000 LeSabre has a loud wind noise on both sides anywhere above 45 mph and above 90 degrees. We drove from Tuscon to Yuma in 110 plus and had a steady, loud whistle from both sides. No noise at all below 85 degrees. Has anyone had the same experience or has anyone had any experience with their dealership or with Buick on this? Thanks.
I must be one of the lucky ones, I have a new 2000 LeSabre Limited and had the dreeded wind noise. I called Buick direct and needless to say they knew nothing about it and I should see my Buick dealer. Well I did, and I was lucky to find their trim man there that day and he exactly what to do. All he did was loosen the windshield and re ... Read More
I also just purchased a 2000 Lesabre Limited and getting the same noise referenced at 60-65 MPH. Has anyone gotten a competent answer from Buick?? My last two cars were Toyota's and this is not a pleasant welcome back to GM. Let's hope we all do not regret our purchases.
