2001 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this well-maintained car used with low mileage. We had good luck with Camrys but wanted to go US. Nice ride, comfortable with lots of power. That's about the only good thing I can think of to say. We can't use any light switches as they've all broken - keep them set to run automatically and hope we don't need to change a setting-both buttons broke off. The gas gauge doesn't work. Over last two years, all four window motors have broken, the two in the back are wedged closed to save the $400 (EACH) to repair them. Whey do we need to open those windows? The fan motor broke in the hottest summer ever, saving to get that fixed. Our 1999 Camry has needed gas and oil since we got it in 2005.
smooth ride. would be smoother with AC.
Buick obviously went cheap on everything outside mechanical engine (lets hope, anyway)I have read of countless ignition and other electrical problems on all Buick models. These negatve experiences will turn a customer away permanently - and that is why US car companies are hurting.
