Summary:

Decent car, but window regulators going out all the time seriously turns me off

Faults:

Replaced 5 window regulators.

Odor from AC.

General Comments:

Next time your window regulator goes out, I recommend buying one from a 3rd party vendor for approx. $100.00 (on the web) and having a glass shop install it for $75. I finally got wise to this on my 5th window, and saved $350 from the more than $500 dealer replacement cost. These 3rd party parts are better quality also.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I just bought a 2000 Buick Le Sabre Limited from a car auction, it has hail damamge, but no other problems. This car is a dream. Its so comfy, and rides very nice. I don't really care about the problems with the windows, The automatic climate control quickly heats up or cools down the car. So who needs the windows. And I'm from Manitoba (In Canada) and its too cold for 8 months of the year to have the windows open anyways. I would recommend this car.

Summary:

GM stop using cheap parts and build a car that lasts!!!

Faults:

Driving to CA while charging rechargeable batteries in the 12V system. All Dash Lights come on...then...Dash goes out (no spedo, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter, temp gauge, shift indicator, etc).

Restart and they come on then off... do that for a couple of min. then they come back and the odometer reads error. (Any Ideas!!!)

Been like that since. Still flicker every-time car is started (gauges/needles come on/off) then.

Runs and Drives fine otherwise.

General Comments:

Car gets 29.25/MPG on the open road @ 75/MPH and cruises comfortably. Beats any other car in power/economy. My Kia Optima 4cyl manages only 27 and with a whole less power.

Loads of room inside and smooth riding. (remove plastic ears near the seat adjusters that trip your entry/exit) and (remove the silly plastic protective cover in trunk).

Rides low front and rear (pulling out of what seemed like a small pitched driveway manages to scrape the front engine supports and the rear muffler)

Prefer the muffler/suspension design of previous generation (92-99).

Nice car, but GM tried too much to reduce costs and everything seems cheaper in this model then my others.

Will buy another one... prob Lucurne when it becomes reasonable enough.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would take the car to the dealer and have them disconnect and reconnect the gauge cluster. When it is re-connected it should retrieve the correct odometer reading. This is a pretty reasonable repair as it shouldn't cost much more than $100.

Got it fixed... disconnected the battery for 30 minutes. Reconnected it and all came back to normal. All I can think of is some-type of electrical short. Now I know how to correct. Thanks!

Summary:

I should buy a Toyota!!!

Faults:

Window regulator and headlight switch problems. When I first got the car, within the 90 day warranty from the dealership the left passenger window regulator needed to be fixed, at cost to dealership. Last year, the passenger front and right back passenger window regulator failed. Dealership quoted $1000 for both, and only the motor would be warranteed. Needless to say, I use duct tape! The headlight switch failed last week and I couldn't shut lights off. I found out the hard way that the fuse box was under the hood and the battery under the back seat!! Cost was $76.00 for the plastic head light switch.

General Comments:

Comfortable and roomy ride, especially when have a family of 6. Parts are extremely expensive.

Summary:

Questionable parts

Faults:

The 1st window regulator (enables power window to move up and down) went out at 42,000 miles (in April), the 2nd one a month later. Third one went out in August (3 out in less than 6 months time). The 4th one (all different windows) went out 2-7-07 leaving us in freezing temps with the window unable to function. I had the first 2 repaired at my expense. Third one is still broken. Dealers will repair at my cost. Buick was not much help.

Windows are main complaint about car- everything else is satisfactory.

Vehicle is comfortable for my family, except in freezing temps with windows that don't work.

General Comments:

Interior of car is roomy and comfortable.
