My grandparents have owned a 1990 Buick Lesabre Custom since it was new. It has been extremely well maintained. It now shows 184,000 miles on the odometer and looks better than cars half its' age. It runs very well and still gets 20+ mpg. It all depends on how you take care of a vehicle as to the kind of service you recieve from it.

Yeah, its 16 years old. With those high miles, and life, things are gonna wear out. Now, if you owned it right when it was brand new from a dealer, and it had unusual problems with such low miles, then yes, I can understand.
By the way, I own a 91 LeSabre, and it has 263,000 kms. I've had pretty well the same problems as the reviewer, plus more. Its nearing the point where everything wears out, and really, I'm not complaining. Still an excellent car, and I would buy another in this body style in a heartbeat.

I am getting one. It only has about 60,000 miles. An old lady owned it, so it was used much. Just needs new lines from sitting damage.

Old Lesabres are some of the cheapest transportation going. The original reviewer doesn't know anything.

The list is all items considered normal repairs! What do you want? The car is 19 years old. These cars are really reliable and get decent gas mileage.

I own a Buick LeSabre and it has over 209,000 miles. Runs like new, but had a few new parts also over the last year. Gas mileage is great, and for 250.000 bucks I can't complain about this auto. Beats Volvo for reliability, and parts are not as expensive. I have had Volvo and many other cars, but these old Buicks are GREAT!

Yes, this Buick was 16 years old when the original review was written, and was 13 years old when the reviewer got the car.
I would have to say that these Buicks (from that era) were actually pretty decent vehicles.

I have to agree with the last post, I have a 90 LeSabre with 190000 miles; hardly had any problems in 50000 miles since I owned it. I still have it, and use it during the winter months. I would consider this a reliable car, even with the amount of miles and being 21 years old, it just keeps on running, uses no oil, and 28MPG is not bad at all!
