#1 car I've ever owned!!!
When I bought the car, the brake system needed a complete overhaul. The rear wheel cylinders had seized up because the car had sat in storage for 7+ years. The rear brake line split open the first time I hit the brakes. (This didn't stop me from driving it home from the purchase site though.)
About 3 months after purchase, I had to replace the fuel tank. It had rotted out from being stored with a full tank.
Sometime before I bought the car it was repainted. Now about 4 years after owning it, the clear-coat is starting to peel (buffer burn?, bad prep prior to paint?). Other than that, the car has been very nice to me and still looks sharp for being 30+ years old.
This is the rare V-6 LeSabre. It is not fast off the line, but does get up once it is moving.
The car is very spacious and comfortable.
It has been the center of many family trips and always gains attention. The 2 most common questions we get are "what year is that?" and "do you want to sell it?".
The car floats like a boat and turns with relative ease. I've become very attached to the car and wouldn't trade it for any other.
By the way, the V-6 does ease the woes of gas prices. Sometimes parts are difficult to locate. Last time I bought a distributor cap I had to special order it (took a little over a week to receive). Other than that I can't complain about owning this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
