The only repair's I've required is to replace two motor mounts on the left front.
My heating system is not working properly.
When it is very warm on the drivers side, it tends to be cool on the passenger side but was told that it is a $600.00 expense to repair.
It is not a serious matter so I have no intention on fixing the situation.
115,000 miles on the car 31,000 miles on the current tires and still it does not require a Front End Alignment.
This car has never had one!
Love the rascal.

There are tons of these cars with low miles out there.
I looked at this site religiously when doing research so decided to pass along info for others.
Bought a top of the line Celebration edition with gran touring package and every other option for $7500, with 44,000 miles.
The tires and brakes are original.
The only thing that does not work is the seat warmer on the drivers side.
I am 6' and the seats are too short and too cushy.
The upper manifold leak had already been fixed by the previous owner.
I get 27 mpg country driving (55 mph, little stopping) and 21 or 22 in the city.
A good value, huge trunk, the car heats up quick, defrosts quicker, is smooth riding and kinda floaty.

upon my purchase, I've very pleased with the car. I'm the third owner and currently the car has 147,826 miles with no reports of dissatisfaction. I accumulate about 66 miles on average in daily usage and get a very respectable 28.0 mpg city/hwy. No rattles/squeaks to report and amazingly, all original equipment work without flaws. Even the leather upholstery has remained soft and no cracks/tears. I have a few minor grips; the lighting in the engine bay and trunk is very dim, and after so many years, the moulding of the rt. side of dashboard and lt. side has separated due to hot interior, attributed to no ventilation. I've leave windows cracked open and the separation has ceased.
To recognize the Buick LeSabre's successful 10-year sales record as the best-selling full-size car in America, and to celebrate Buick's centennial anniversary in 2003, Buick has added a new trim option for the LeSabre Limited model. Buick's product planners must have been feeling particularly creative when they named it; it's called the Celebration Edition. It features a new monochrome emblem, a blacked-out grille and license plate pocket and two new premium paints, Crimson Pearl and White Diamond. Additional Celebration exterior bits include body-color lower fascias and rocker moldings, turn-signal indicators in the side mirrors and new 16-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels. Interior refinements are limited to two-tone leather seating and Black Cherry wood grain trim. It also includes a number of otherwise optional features, such as StabiliTrak. The rest of the LeSabre line is pretty much unchanged, with the exception of XM Satellite Radio, which is a new option on the Limited, and side-impact airbags, formerly standard on all LeSabres, are now optional on Custom models.
