Most reliable car I've owned.

by Fisherman from Cincinnati, Ohio on Tue Mar 18 2008

I've only had two major problems in 65,000 miles and I believe that both were manufacturer's defects. The wires to my air conditioning system fused and had to be replaced at a cost of $900. The exhaust manifold leaked and caused antifreeze to enter my cylinders. Repair cost, again, $900. It rides like a dream. It's like driving a cloud. I'll keep it till it falls apart. It has no rain gutters which I really miss.

bullet proof

by benz basher from northwest USA on Sat Mar 29 2008

avoid if you are under 5'7". plenty of leg room and room to relax. better mileage and more room than ALOT of mid sizecars out there. Very economical to operate. save money..... low grade fuel required

LaSabre ..Love It!

by LaSabre Lady from Horry Co. SC on Sat Dec 08 2012

First LaSabre 1994..dealer left over. Loved it..no complaints, plenty of long distance highway and local driving. Sold it around 2003 with 174,000+/- m. Went to find another one..they are hard to find! Bought 1998 with 50,000 m. Presently 130,000 m.. Performance just fine for us, comfy suspension and seats, plenty of head and leg room, great trunk space..golf clubs and lots of luggage. Styling now phased out, but still an attractive car. Minimal problems..no complaints. Love the quality of the paint. Car feels substantial and sturdy. I trust my car. I'm well an "older" woman..made sudden decision to drive alone to upstate NY and back to SC without concern. Will miss this car!

Still going

by Pipesinger from Tennessee on Tue Jan 07 2014

269,000 miles and still going, although I'm at the end of the road with this one. The ride is wonderfully comfortable, smooth and luxurious. The body is still just like new, no rust. I have a tan exterior with tan leather interior. Now for the downside. A head gasket at 90 miles, an intake valve at 262,000 miles, a water pump, the headliner fell down, no heat or air-conditioning, no CD or tape deck, a tensioner (serpentine belt holder) at 267,000 miles. But the car is a work horse, I run cars hard with an hour commute for 13 years and run them over rough gravel hills up and down driveways. But things go wrong with all cars. I got this one for $500 in 2007 but now it's time for a different car. These cars last and they are gorgeous cars. I love mine.

Older but incredible car

by Tjgregg from Charles city, IA on Wed Nov 22 2017

Although this car may be older, it was built to last with minimal problems. It is a car that you know is reliable and that you can trust to get you around.

Good car

by Comfi from NH, CA on Sun May 21 2017

Very comfi to drive. Quiet engine, inexpensive to maintain, good mpg for a full size car, handles well in poor weather, plenty of cabin/trunk space & comfortable. it gets around 27-28 mpg and about 21-22 around town. Surprisingly competent handling, good power, Highway fuel economy, trunk size, safety, durability (Was hit by a jeep in the door while he was doing 25 in reverse in a parking lot, and it literally did nothing. 2 shallow scratches, that's it.) I love the look of this years Lesabre, and they are fairly intuitive to work on, If not the most easily accessible, it is certainly doable. Parts are cheap, and the cars themselves are cheap to buy.

This car very comfortable, rides like new.

by Peter from Valley cottage New York on Tue Oct 09 2018

This is a great value, it has a new motor (short block,reconditioned heads) and transmission. I am the second owner( since 2001) and I have put thousands of dollars into this car to maintain it. All maintenance documents available for view. Tires are like new, paint job is very good.

Our Take on the 1998 Buick LeSabre

The Buick LeSabre is not one of autodom's leading sex objects.

Its styling goes beyond conservatism and achieves yesteryear. The protruding chrome door handles are '50s fugitives. Ozzie and Harriet would have loved the seats. The dashboard design speaks to us from a fresher grave.

And you know what? None of that anachronistic frumpiness has hurt the LeSabre's popularity one bit. It continues to be America's best-selling full-size sedan, a title it has held for the last five years.

The reason for its sales supremacy is that its clientele doesn't care about the book's cover. These people buy the car because it is roomy, reliable, comfortable, quiet -- and a heck of a value. The LeSabre, which... Read More
