2002 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
This Buick has nice styling, performance, and a great ride. However, the 3.8 engine has a reoccuring issue with Intake Manifold gasket leaks that GM refuses to take responsibility for. Check out NHTSA vehicle bulletins for this model. I experienced the same problem in my Chevy Lumina with 3.1 V6. You will be replacing your gasket approx. every 25- 30k miles at a cost of $700-900 a pop. I went thru this 2x with my Lumina and now my Buick has it's first failure at 60k miles. Time to trade it in.
Great ride. A lot of car for the money (until it breaks).
Visibility to the rear is terrible when backing up. Rear of car slopes upward which limits visibility to the rear of the vehicle.
