Summary:

Reliable boat

Faults:

Absolutely nothing has so far gone wrong with the car. Had the car for 8 months, put about 16,000 on it, and other than general maintenance, oil changes, cleaning the brakes, a fuel filter, a brake light bulb, and I had a wheel balance done. It has been a great car. It does leak a little oil from the intake manifold area. Other than that, great car. Would recommend the 95' LeSabre to anyone.

General Comments:

It's a rich mans Chevrolet, and a poor mans Cadillac.

For it being a 1995, I feel it was a technologically advanced car. Simple OBD 1, Series 1 3800 Liter engine. A change oil soon oil monitoring system. Passenger side climate control system. Dynaride suspension; the car rides like a dream.

Dash and interior are nice, and arranged well for driver comfort. Fake chrome trim, and wood grain dash are great accents for the car.

Seats are comfortable, made for a delicate 80 year old's butt.

3.8 has enough power to drive normally.

Exceptional fuel mileage, I've seen that thing get almost 29 MPG. Great for a 1995, a larger, heavier car.

3 way stereo system makes for great sound separation and upgrading.

Not a lick of rust on it. This older LeSabre looks and has more useful, practical features on it than a new or newer Buick.

I don't see what people see in Mercedes Benzs, BMWs and Lexus, and Infinitis. America has all the luxury people need.

More practical features than a newer Buick, what exactly would those be?

How about this practical feature - it doesn't break.

Summary:

Good beater after 300,000 miles

Faults:

When we first bought the car, the problems started. We drove 6 miles from the dealership and the water pump went out. Dealer came to get it, and two weeks later the car was ready.

Got it, then one month later the motor blew up. The dealer came to get it 1 week later.

Two months later we get the car back, and two weeks later the intake leaks coolant into the motor. 1 week later the dealer comes to get it and finds the torque converter loose, trans seal broke. 4 months later we get the car back.

For the first five years the same sh-- happened, then the car was off warranty and I told the wife that the car was not going back to the dealer ever again; I would junk it first.

Then I replaced all the hose clamps on the antifreeze and gas lines, and drove the hell out of the car and never had to do much else but oil and brakes. But for the first five years of the car, we had use of it 11 months.

General Comments:

Great car, very poor dealer.

Summary:

Good car

Faults:

Nothing serious has gone wrong.

Have replaced windshield washer reservoir & windshield washer pump - all because windshield washer wasn't working properly. It's fine now.

Have replaced tires and serpentine belt, not because there was a problem, but because they were old.

General Comments:

Inherited from father-in law with only 11,000 miles in 2001. Now has just under 29000 miles.

The car was hit in a parking lot last year and has front fender damage on the passenger side, which we have neglected to repair.

It also has no CD player. (okay, minor issue)

The oil has been changed about 3 times per year.

So would it be worth fixing up and keeping?

Summary:

Reliable well built car

Faults:

Nothing. The car has never been back to the dealer for repairs.

Tires, brakes done once, and a couple batteries, that's it.

General Comments:

My 1995 Buick LeSabre has been very reliable.

All the power electric gizmos still work, power seats, windows, door locks, trunk release, even the keyless entry key chain fob still works.

Good gas mileage for a roomy comfortable car.

Very comfortable seats, lots of leg room front and rear.

Solid well built car.

It only has 103,000 miles, but it is 13 years old, aging very well.
