2001 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my 2000 used in July 2002.
w/ 24,000 mi. put 20,000 mi on it
I've had to fix or replace in 6 months:
4 tires, very cheap generals (shaky)
2 - power window units (there should
be a recall on this from GM)very
1 - fuel pump
1 - coil and a set of plug
wires (not covered in warranty)
very common problem with these cars.
1 - tranny cellenoid. + $60 re-
allingment had to drop the tranny to
replace the cellenoid.
GM uses cheap electrical parts:
* problems in the remote
steering wheel controls.
* warpping and leaking plastic intake
Great gas mileage 30 mph at 70, 26+ avg.
Good looking car.
Sould have better tires on a car
retailing for $23000 new.
Recall the power window units.
Use better and longer lasting
Always buy the extended warranty on
