2004 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Bought in fall of 2008 at car lot that deals in high mileage vehicles that look ok. Had 106000 intially. I've added about 15000. Gas mileage on interstate = 31 mpg. good power. comfortable for trip. Negatives are AC sometimes blow hot air on driver side and cold air on passenger. Also, hard shift every few days (1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd). Guesstimate from dealer on repairing both problems = 900 bucks. Two front chrome mag wheels leak air around the rim unless you get tire store to sand and goop up the rim. Overall car is good transportation given that I gave $5100 for a 4 year old car. Our 2 Hondas have been much more trouble free (everything works right)over 300k miles on those 2 together.
radio controls on steering wheel, gas mileage, acceleration; more comfortable to drive on trip than our 2 Hondas. Hondas will paralyze my back and hip in about 50 miles.
Improve reliability of AC controls, shift control of transmission. Even with mentioned problems, I like this car.
