Could be Worse..I think?
By carlover53 on


2001 Buick LeSabre Limited 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Bought used in 07 with 55,000 miles from a private party that moved out of country. Now has a little over 82,000 on the clock. Within the first year, rear running light (big red panel light on right) and front left headlight went out within a few days of each other. Driver heated seat quit working (passenger fine), would cost nearly $600 to repair! Dash started peeling up in 09 above glove box, and a little have a half inch high by 5 inch wide hump in front of the steering wheel under the windshield. Would cost nearly $1,100 to repair! I'm just gonna glue it down and buy a cloth dash cover that sticks on w/ Velcro. SEE IMPROVEMENTS FOR REST OF STORY

Best Features

Heated seat (passenger, since driver's doesn't work), sun roof, auto climate, driver memory, radio with casset and CD, 12 disk CD changer (in trunk), Heads Up Display, huge trunk, power seats. It's a nice roomy car for a 79 year old and a 16yr old grandson that just got licensed and he just loves it.

Worst Features

All climate control lights(when dark) except AUTO, OFF, and HEAT/COOL arrows are out,; good thing I memorized their locations. Radio preset lights 4 and 5 are out, Lights on outer buttons (Volume/Seek) on steering wheel are out(when dark),including cruise control buttons on bottom of steering wheel,driver preset lights(when dark)1/2 are out,latch to lock pass through into trunk broke off,so taped closed and peeled off when needing to be opened.Sun roof ring (thing glass slides on and wind breaker that pops up) broke,in the vented position just before it started raining. $1,800 to fix.
