Why would you need the A/C in the winter, and did the car cost half the life of your future wife, or just her dress and shoes?
I would say there are more LeSabres on the road compared to older Camrys and Accords. Plus this review is about a 94 model with the first generation 3800 V6; an engine you couldn't kill if you tried.
Sometimes I read these reviews and wonder if they are written by import salesmen. We too owned a Buick LeSabre. It was driven 277,000 miles with never a problem. These are some of the most solid, reliable cars ever built. For over a decade Buick traded places with Lexus as J.D. Powers "Most reliable car", until Ford's Lincoln knocked both of them off last year. It's very hard to find a more reliable car than the Buick LeSabre.
If that lady didn't become your wife for the sole reason antifreeze spilled on her due to a mechanical malfunction, she probably would NOT have been a good wife.
Well... the AC compressor runs in the winter in defrost or defog mode to remove moisture from the air in the car.
Yes, I am sure that was why the reviewer had to "dress heavily in the winter".
Cos the A/C compressor wasn't working to remove moisture from the air.
Well since moving home, you can pick up a guitar and maybe write a number 1 hit country song about your unfortunate experiences with the LeSabre. If you make a video, make sure Paris Hilton plays the girl who gets antifreeze all over her...
"Oh mah tale of woe,
On account of mah Buick ninety-fo,
It ruint mah life,
And scared away mah future wife,
Now I'm lookin' for a doll,
Who digs ethylene glycol"
Well, it's a start...
Well let me guess, you kept driving after the heater core failed, your car lost all its coolant, and the car severely overheated or caused a blown head gasket, which in turn blew the motor up.
One way or another, you probably neglected the car, because the 3800 doesn't just blow up after such small mileage. Oh, and how ridiculous is it to blame a car on ruining your hopes of marrying your future wife; jeez it's an old car, in life there is friction, nothing will last forever.
