Summary:

Garbage...EXPENSIVE garbage!

Faults:

Everything has gone wrong with this piece of junk.

I have had to twice replace the brakes in two years.

I have replaced all four struts. Very expensive!

I have replaced all engine gaskets and the oil pan gaskets due to leaks.

I have replaced the master cylinders.

I have replaced the engine cooler coil.

I have replaced the turn signal mechanism.

General Comments:

This is a typical GM. Things break. Things stop working for no apparent reason. Things wear out. And typically, the dealers don't ever know how to fix anything. Once this piece of garbage is gone, they will never see me again. I am going back to Toyota and back to being a happy driver.

My back will never be the same either from driving around on this poorly built couch.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This cannot be more far from the truth than have ever seen, The Buick LeSabre is one of the most dependable cars out there, I own one and it has over 100,000, and has not had any problems thus far at all, and by the way, brakes are supposed to be replaced annually, that is what is called maintenance! You can go back to your little jap scrap though, every part is very expensive to replace and brakes will STILL need to be replaced every year!

Best car I have ever had.

I drive long distances and put on a lot of kilometers, I could not have asked for a better car. I have done almost no repairs to this car and it has never let me down.

Very roomy, comfortable.

Great highway fuel economy.

I wrote this original review several months ago. The car now has well over 530,000km on it with really no issues at all. This is still the best car ever!!!
