2000 Buick LeSabre Custom V6 from North America
Love the car, but it's a lemon
Vehicle leaked when I first got the car. It took several days before they found out where it was leaking from. (drivers side left wheel well). Hood was loose and had to have stronger springs put on. Transmission went out at 20,000 miles and was repaired, I wanted a new one, but to no avail. Dealer didn't realign front end causing tires to wear. It is in the dealer now with window operator problems. This is the sixth new operator. Every one has been replaced and now two twice. I tried going for a buy back, but the car was a couple months past two years. GM has given me an extended warranty, but I am afraid to take the car on any long trips, never knowing if the transmission will fall apart again of if a window operator will go.
Car runs and handles beautifully, but with all the trouble I have had I am afraid of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Almost everyone I know of has had window regulators replaced in their LeSabres. It is a GM defect and they should fix it. We are having the third regulator replaced. Both front units went out and now the left rear regulator is broken. They all need cable replaced, about one dollars worth, but you have to buy the whole unit for $288 plus installation. No more GM products for this family.
