1989 Buick LeSabre Limited 3800 V6 from North America
Best of the FWD Buicks
In order of six years ownership:
Turn signal flasher.
Cosmetic stuff, headliner, trunk lid needed a repaint.
Despite being a uni-body-FWD, these LeSabres were nice, solid built, smooth riding, reliable cars. As far as this body style, I recommend to stick with years '88-91 when the 3800 was in its prime (no plastic intake along with a belt tensioner and plastic coolant bypass flaw on the series II). '86-'87 were OK, but the 3.8 V6 was a little shaky because of no balance shaft and had a couple other kinks to be worked out.
The Limited trim interior was very comfortable with a well laid out handsome dash and quiet cabin.
The ride quality is traditional full size Buick, but not as good as the rear drive predecessors, but for sure better than any of today's Buicks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I see all kinds of LeSabres and Centuries from this time period. These cars are going on 20 years old and still going strong! I think I see more older Buicks on the road than any other make. I am a real Buick fan so I guess I am inclined to notice them. Once in a while I will see one that is over 30 years old! It is hard to beat Buick for comfort and value. I wonder if all of the new Toyotas and Hondas will still be on the road in 20 years. I hope not.
