First and Last Buick for Me
By Desert Dweller on


1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


The driver seat does not fit a tall
body. Back support is too low,
and the seat inhibits circulation.
Despite meticulous maintenance this car
has stranded me three times, on
highways where it is 45-75 miles
between towns. Transmission
failed at 60,000 mi. ($2,000 repair).
Manifold failed at 125,000 ($1000).
Power steering bearing froze
at 144,000, throwing the belt and
leaving me stranded 45 miles out, on a
Sunday, in winter. After five hours a
super-honest country mechanic
came,charging only $136 for the tow,
the repair, and an oil change! Never
drive without a cell phone if you own a

Best Features

I like the interior and exterior styling,color, and amenities. Upholstery,car body and paint stand up wonderfully to severe desert environment.

Worst Features

Motor/transmission needs to be more reliable. Seat needs more adjustable back support. Try to find extra headroom some way other than settling the driver's derriere into a hole, then building up the front of the seat so it inhibits circulation.
