1997 Buick LeSabre Limited 3.8 from North America
Replace fuel cap to solve chugging at highway speeds.
Factory battery connectors had to be replaced (no start).
Receipts in glove box for replacing both front wheel bearings and new fuel pump one month prior to me purchasing car (glad he paid for that).
Also have another '97 in driveway with 128000 kms to replace my '94 LeSabre that has 317000 kms on it if ever dies, still runs A-1, burns no oil and still gets 30 mpg.
However, I do wish they had the plastic front fenders like the '94 has.
Both '97's are identical in colour in and out, but have different made seats, and one is uncomfortable and the other is perfect.
These cars will get 30 mpg easily. (640 kms to a tank).
They are comfortable, they are quick.
The traction control is awesome to have for the snow belt area. (Owen Sound Ont). I mean snow up to level of the bumper.
I gave my '97 Ford Escort to my son and the LeSabre's give about the same fuel mileage, so why would anyone want to drive a tin can when they can drive in style??? So what if you have to spend $800 on the intake, my '94 has 317000 kms on it and still runs like a top. Minus 30 degrees Celsius and the '97 and '94 have started every time without being plugged in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
