1983 Buick LeSabre Custom 3.8 V6 (dog) from North America
Oil sending unit.
No paint left.
This car is the best damn car in the world, it saved my life when I was hit by a 99 Ford piece of crap in front of where I work. He was going 70 and they said I would be dead if it weren't for that car. I still drive the same type of car today and I still have the old one behind my barn, I plan to salvage her one day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Dog is an understatement. I had a 1983 Buick Regal with a 3.8 liter V6 when I was in high school, and even weighing hundreds of pounds less than a LeSabre, that car struggled to get out of its own way.
The 3.8 became a much better motor around 1984/85 when it got fuel injection.
The older 3.8s with carburetors were OK if you just wanted reliable transportation. They seemed to burn more oil and start hard in cold weather, compared to the other V8 engines that were available.

I have the greatest car ever also, but I have been trying to get someone to get the 'check engine' light to go off and stay off for a few years! The car runs great, rides great and handles great. Have you had any experience with this?
