255000 miles, new plugs and wires every 30000 miles, oil change every 3000 miles will keep you driving. Some like mine, may not look so great after 16 years, but runs like new. Even A/C still works.
I just bought a used 1990. 220,000 miles and the only thing broken is the radio. I'd say that's pretty indicative of the high quality of the automobile.
I got `89 lesabre with 70000 miles. I`ve driven many cars, but this one is far MOST COMFORTABLE one!
I LOVE THIS CAR!
294000 miles on my 1990 LeSabre custom, same engine and transmission. I have replaced crank sensor, alternator, ECM, heater core and radiator.
I have owned it since 2000 and this car left me stranded only once for the crank sensor.
19-22mpg in town and 28-30mpg hwy. My daughter followed me on a 150 mile trip in a Ford Escort ZX2 and the Buick used less gas. I filled both from and to location.
I've had a 1990 Buick LeSabre for the last 4 years, and only paid $1200 for it. It has been trouble free. It had 120k miles on it when purchased and now has 190k. The only unfortunate thing to occur is I hit a deer this morning, and it may well be totaled. I will do what I can to get another LeSabre around the same vintage. What a great automobile it's been! R.I.P.
When I bought my 1990 Buick, it only had 41,000 miles. I'm 62 years old and have had a lot of different cars, new and old. But I must say this is the best I've every had. great ride, good gas mileage, a real joy to drive..
Being white with a perfect red vinyl top, she sure is pretty when cleaned up. It's a shame to be so old before finding the perfect car.
