Summary:

It don't die

Faults:

Although reliable, this car does have its problems,

The lovely GM factory white paint was more or less missing and rusting when I bought it.

I replaced the front brakes once, and the back brakes are due up very soon.

Leaking intake gasket, isn't bad yet, so it can wait.

Carpet terribly worn when purchased, need to order a new one soon.

Replaced computer, Quad driver failed.

The windshield broke.

General Comments:

Although the list of problems, this car won't die, it's a tank.

The acceleration needs some help, don't speed up fast enough, but when it hits a highway, it's a great ride.

No performance parts... everyone sees it as an old man's car... Parts for Bonnevilles are compatible though, they are almost the same car.

Radio is too far away.

My girlfriend has a 1992 LeSabre. She had to change the modules a couple of years ago. She left the car in the driveway this long weekend and when she went out for smokes she couldn't get her car started. Could it be dirty! Or do they need replacing? Do we check the fuel sending unit?

Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you.

I recently purchased a 1992 buick lesabre custom and I've had no real problems with it. It rides great, the only real problems I have with it is it seems to have an ECM problem witch is kin of expensive problem to fix, the ECM runs about $155.00. And the fans have an after market thermostat, but that's not the fault of buick, but all in all I would have to give the car an 8 out of ten.

We have a l996 Buick custom LeSabre with about 50,000 miles - garaged most all the time at home. It has been a super car. I have been surfing the "net" looking at other makes and prices. I was interested in buying another car but now I have decided to keep my l996 for another two years at the least. I have had NO problems with this Buick. Why should I want something else.
