I'm responding to the mail about the uncomfortable seats in the 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. For what it's worth, I have a 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. I'm 6'4" tall and I'm able to raise the seat up to where it is completely comfortable. Over the last year I've taken several long trips and I believe the seats are the most comfortable I've ever had in a car and so far, in my lifetime, I've gone through 28 cars. (This should also tell you I've been around a while).

I agree with rhraasch that the seats in the 2000 LeSabre are supportive and comfortable. I've driven many, many miles on long trips without getting tired or suffering back pain or discomfort. I like the power lumbar support (Limited version)which is easy to adjust unlike the manual hard-to-turn knobs on so many cars which discourage the use of this feature. Now if GM would only learn to use decent looking leather on their seats............

Purchased my car on March 23,2001 I have had it back for a noise when turning right or left. sounds like it is coming from inside the car. The seat track has been replaced the noise is still there. Hard to tell exactly where the noise is coming from. Anyone else have similar problem.
#439 of 1520 whats most reliable type of car?
Jun 15, 2001 (6:11 pm)
I am college student who is looking for an affordable car that can get me back and forth to college (2 hrs away) when I want to go home for the weekends or for breaks. I was thinking about a Honda or a Toyota but then I saw a '95 Buick LeSabre Custom on sale for not that much and looked it up on Edmunds which showed good ratings. I'm trying to get a car that lasts til I'm out of college at least (if not longer) which is 2 1/2 more years. Does anyone have any advice on which type of car would be best for me?
#440 of 1520 1992 Buick LeSabre

I was wondering if anyone could provide a short review (from personal experience) of the 1992 Buick LeSabre Custom. I'm planning on buying one in the near future (within the next few days). The one I'm looking at has 89,000 miles and I know too little about cars to be able to tell if it's in good shape or not just to look at it. In terms of comfort it's a beauty. Other than that, anyone know how reliable it is? Any safety concerns I should know about? I'm a grad student and need a reliable car for another three years.

You can go to the National Highway Traffic Safey Administration site at NHTSA.com and get data like safety recalls and crash tests. It takes a few minutes to orient yourself to the site but after that it is easy to use. I don't know if info goes back to 1992 or not but it is worth a try.

#445 of 1520 Steering noise
Jun 24, 2001 (2:49 pm)
In response to vsaxena posts about the steering noise. I have a 96 lesabre and I first noticed the steering noise after a cold start. Later, there is a mysterious hum. The pitch of the hum varies depending on how fast I'm travelling. (A higher pitch sound when I'm travelling over 30mph, and a lower, deeper hum when I'm travelling under 20mph)
The dealer checked the car and replaced the problem by replacing the front right steer bearing which cost about $450-500 (canadian) in parts alone. (forgot the cost of labour)
Hope this helps.
