what a nightmare
By fed up on


1998 Buick LeSabre Custom 4dr Sedan


Ran fine for a year. Six months ago
the plenium cracked and broke, head
damage, $1,000 to fix. A month ago,
explosion, crunch and a piston
connecting rod was shattered (it's
about an inch thick of solid steel -
imagine the force of that explosion!,)
pieces through the engine-$1200
estimated to fix. My husband decided
to tackle it - car was entirely apart
when we got the recall from Buick that
fuel adjustment guage was defective.
We found fuel in the vacuum lines &
that little part caused this. Since
car is apart & we bought $500 in parts
to fix, don't want to tow it to Buick.
RUN SCREAMING from this vehicle.

Best Features

comfortable ride - when it rides.

Worst Features

Serpentine belt was designed by a nut job-have to take the motor mounts off. There's a diagram in owner's manual after you've spent hours trying to figure it out.
