You are in the Buick LeSabre
What is this discussion about?
Buick LeSabre, Sedan
#496 of 1520 Buick LeSabre 1998 Custom Model
Sep 19, 2001 (1:54 pm)
My wife has an Uncle who is selling his '98 Custom LeSabre with all the bells and whistles. He will sell it to us for $13K. The car is in excellent shape, been garaged and has only 24K miles on it. I used to sell these cars in 1998 but I don't remember much about any recalls, problems, etc.
Should we or shouldn't we???
This is the question. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hmmmm. Sounds interesting. I could think of a few features I wouldn't mind seeing in a "LeSabre Ultra". Better stereo, better bucket seats, little more wood trim (or real wood instead of fake), power lumbar for the passenger, 17" wheels/tires for the GT suspension, backup alarm, more info on the HID, and last but not least, HOW ABOUT A SUPERCHARGED ENGINE WITH A HEAVY_DUTY TRANSAXLE !
Go build it Buick. I'll buy it tomorrow.
#499 of 1520 Ultra...and modding the '94 Ltd
Sep 21, 2001 (12:54 pm)
...I will buy in a jiffy. This car I am driving ('94 Ltd with base suspension) is superb. With a little more suspension tuning, Steering wheel and oomph, this car will really kick a..
I have to start modding it someday...I plan to go from suspension (bars, better shocks) to intake/exhaust and lastly to supercharger. This will be the sleeper sedan of the century.
#500 of 1520 LeSabre Ultra makes sense

especially since the Park is soon to be replaced with a sexy and gorgeous new concept car. (Wish I could remember the name - not Blackhawk)
An Ultra based on LeSabre, priced below present Ultra would be a sweet addition to the line.
Mike - got your checkbook ready?

Buick LeSabre Ultra. I love the sound of it. Especially if that sucker has the 3800SC engine which it sounds like it will. Mine will be gone tomorrow if Buick builds this thing.
Actually, it's sounding more and more like Buick is going to be one of the sedan survivors in GM. I've been hearing the rumors about the Bonneville and other Pontiac sedans. It looks like Chevy will be building trucks/SUVs/Vans, importing small sedans, and of course, building more Vettes. Pontiac is supposed to be focusing on sporty SUV models and possibly a successor to the Firebird/TransAm. Olds is gone. Saturn has their own little world. That leaves Buick and Cadillac as the primary sedan makers in GM. Hopefully Buick will start sprucing their lineup a little to reel in a different market group. Cadillac will still be the premier division, so I don't see a mass shift of GM sedan buyers to Cadillac, even though the new CTS looks pretty hot.
Hope everything is going well in the wake of the September 11 tragedy.
#502 of 1520 Love seeing this flag by my post!

Thank-you Edmunds for the flags - you were ahead of the curve on this one! It's great to see those flags standing proudly. Next - how about making them wave a bit?
God Bless America
#503 of 1520 Ultra Future

Mike - I'd also love to see Buick produce this car - and would definitely consider it when replacement time comes for my Bonneville. I have fond memories of Buicks in my past and although I'm also enamored with Impala LS, LeSabre Ultra would be a wonderful consideration.
#504 of 1520 Future of GM Sedans

I also like the idea of a LeSabre "Ultra", but I also think that perhaps the new home for the Aurora will be Buick, and that car will be the "performance" model of the lineup.
#505 of 1520 Buick Aurora

I keep hearing that, too. That would actually make more sense that a SC LeSabre. All they really have to do is change the front and give it some type of Buick grill and get rid of any Olds logos on the car. If Buick does take this car, I hope they improve on the quality. That seems to be the biggest complaint about the Aurora.
