2004 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Review
LeSabre's 2000-2004 are made with a phenolic resin intake maniford that warps and leaks antifreeze into the engine's cylinders - basically blowing superheated steam into the combustion chambers. The factory-recall fix (put locktight on 3 bolts) doesn't work. According to a factory trained mechanic, many engines have had to be replaced because of this cheap construction. Also, "permanently lubricated" tie-rods wear prematurely and have to be replaced at low milage. Plastic window grips on electric windows break easily.
Favorite Features
Battery under the back seat saves it from engine heat.
Suggested Improvements
Aluminum or magnesium intake manifolds.
