#647 of 1520 Experience with our 2000 LeSabre Limited
Aug 17, 2002 (4:56 pm)
Have had our 2000 LeSabre Limited for the past 27K miles and 29 months. Not one iota of a problem. Did replace the 16" factory tires with Firestone whitewall Affinity's. Looks a lot better to me! Of course, I came into the car loving world when whitewalls were the "in" thing. I drive cars for Avis and that's what sold me on the Buick......any of the models are super drivers. However, I will say this, I'm going to seriously consider the Avalon when the next car buying time comes. Don't want to look like the grandfather I am!!
#648 of 1520 Tires for LeSabre
Aug 19, 2002 (4:16 pm)
I love Michelin quality. I put X-Ones on my 98
LeSabre. They grip great in snow and cold icy
roads because of the treat rubber compound.
I put XH4s on my last LeSabre and one failed at
110 K. I never thought I;'d keep the car this long.
they still have 3 to 4 32nds of tread depth.
The X-Ones are soft and quiet but grip great.

Hey, Avalons are "granddaddy" cars too, so you really won't be making youself look any younger. Just get a Civic with wacky spoilers and look stupid trying to look young, instead.
#650 of 1520 Tires and Gas Mileage
Aug 24, 2002 (3:39 pm)
Hi everyone, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth about replacement tires and gas mileage. I replaced my original Firestone Affinity tires on my 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited at 30,000 miles with Michelin Symmetry tires. So far, (2000 + miles) they seem to be wearing very well. I have the 16 inch tires and the Touring Suspension.
Concerning gas mileage, I think that the brand of gasoline you use has alot to do with your mileage. I had been using Shell regular gasoline and had been getting 31 mpg on the highway. I then joined the Upromise program and switched to Exxon regular for the college savings. After I switched, my highway mpg went down to 26. I then switched back to Shell and my mpg went back up to 31. So, maybe if you try a different gasoline, your mileage might improve.
Just came back from a 700 mile trip to Maine and back and averaged 31.2 mpg on the highways.
#651 of 1520 Tire replacement on 2002 LeSabre
Aug 28, 2002 (10:17 am)
For a better ride and stability I would consider Bridgestone Turanzas...They improved the ride on my old 1993 LeSabre...the downside is that you will have to replace them 35k miles...for endurance go with Michelon. The tradeoff in tire buying is always ride vs wear. Actually the original equipment Generals are probably going to be hard to beat for soft ride on the LeSabre since Buick wants to suck-in older buyers who like that feature. I would keep the Generals until the tread gets thinner and your ride rougher before going to Turanzas or Michelons.
#652 of 1520 1991 slow power windows
Sep 14, 2002 (5:26 pm)
My 1991 LeSabre has slow power windows (all 4). I find it hard to believe that all 4 motors are bad, but I guess it's possible. I was thinking it was more of a low voltage issue. I haven't measured the voltage at the motors though.
#654 of 1520 hesitant acceleration
Sep 30, 2002 (5:36 am)
Hello, I am new to this site and am hopeful I can get the answers to my situation.
I have a 93 buick lesabre LTD with 167,000 kms.
My situation is when I am at a full stop,and when I step on the acceleration, there is a pronounced hesitation. It seems no fuel is getting to the required destination.
I have had the fuel injectors cleaned, a new gas filter and new spark plugs.
I am trying to avoid paying the money for a scope,can anyone give me any suggestions as to what this recurring problem be? Thank you.

Car is almost 12 years old, isn't it?
