2003 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Thinking Buick was one of the best GM vehicles and wanting to buy American (actually it was Canadian) I purchased this as my first new car ever. Two months after the time warranty expired (3 years but the car had only 29000 miles) I needed a new transmission switch. While fixing the transmission, the mechanic found an air conditioning problem (over $1000) then while repairing the air conditioning found an intake manifold seal problem (over $1000). The catch for partial "goodwill" warranty coverage was allowing them to perform the expensive 30000 mile service. It still cost me over $1000 and the transmission still shifed rough. Fortunately I sold it before something else went wrong.

Favorite Features

Comfortable for long straight trips with good highway mileage. Having a friend with a LeSabre almost as bad as mine was nice for consoling purposes.

Suggested Improvements

Improve quality control in the manufacturing of the car. Build a better product (dashboard squeaked plus all the mechanical stuff). While complaining to a GM rep I told him I felt sorry for all the complaints I'm sure he receives (and the dealership too). Improve handling - it's terrible on curves.
