Another GM Mistake
By Fred on


1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


Has 2 piece plastic intake manifold, which cracked at 138,000 ( I later learned they all do after 125,000 miles) leaked coolant into engine spinning main bearing. No trunk lamp, know who wants a vehicle without a trunk? DUH Tensioner pulley disintegrated at 80,000 miles, more plastic crap. Seats are made of cheap soft foam you sink into the seat. Drivers window regulator failed at 78,000 miles cheap electronics. Battery failed at 60,000 miles 7 years old. Cheap center cup holder. Brake lines burst at 125,000 miles from corrosion, they were not properly coated with protection material and placement at left front of engine compartment exposed them to elements

Best Features

Great road car, smooth ride, long and wide holds the road better than any car I ever drove. Great gas Mileage for 3.8 heavy car, averaged 28 mpg on country roads, got 31 mpg on hwy at 75 mph

Worst Features

make a seat with better foam compound where your butt does not sink. Put a stinking lamp in the trunk so i see at in there night you cheap dummy. one piece aluminum intake manifold place brake lines and with coating to protect from elements. better tensioner pulley
