1991 Buick LeSabre Custom 3.8 V6 from North America
If you're looking for a great older car, this is the one to buy
Rear brakes replaced at 136,000 miles.
One front tie rod end replaced at about 115,000 miles.
Front brakes replaced at about 115,000 miles.
This is a very comfortable car to drive. Great ride for long distance trips and it handles well. Lots of front seat space, but the rear seat is a little tight for taller people when the front seats are adjusted all the way back. There's a little more road noise than there should be, but it's not too bad.
It accelerates very quickly, faster than you might expect from an ordinary family sedan. Lots of torque.
The gas mileage is pretty good (20-25 miles per gallon), considering that I don't always drive it gently.
There are only a few minor things I'd change about the car, like the placement of the seat belts (they're mounted on the doors). Some of the instrument panel warning lights are hidden by the steering wheel rim. Other than that, it's designed very well.
I really love this car overall. It's extremely reliable. I used to have a 1990 LeSabre just like this '91, and that was a great reliable car as well. My positive experience with that car is what influenced me to buy this one. I wish I had a lifetime supply of Buick LeSabres. It wouldn't bother me a bit to drive one of these on an everyday basis even when it becomes an antique! I'll definitely buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Is this a 90, or a 91? your review is under a 90 LeSabre.
Are you really sure your belts are on the door? Is this a t-type 2 door Lesabre? If it's a 4 door, the belts are 2 point, and are not mounted on the door. If it's a 2 door, then yeah.
How do I know? I've got a 91 4 door LeSabre Limited. Last year they made em in this style, and I love em!
