2001 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I began to have steering problems about
1500 miles into my ownership of this
auto. At highway speeds it would
suddenly feel like I was hydro-planing
or hit a patch of ice. It felt as if
the back end wanted to go one way and
the front end another and turning the
steering wheel had no effect for a
couple of seconds. They have re-
aligned the tires and found one that
was defective and replaced that one.
This problem began after I made a hard
stop, but not an emergency stop, and
the "Traction off" light came on. No
matter what I tried (even turning off
the motor), I could not get that light
to go off. They found a problem with a
wire and the brakes. It still does not
I really enjoy knowing what the
temperature is outside, so I know
whether to take my jacket or not.
Also, On-Star is a wonderful addition.
Improve the "Traction" and ABS so the
car handles and drives as it should.
