How much miles can one get from a Buick LeSabre.

Postby jonas » Sat Feb 28, 2009 7:54 am

The answer to this question is very important for me as I am thinking of buying a 1999 Buick LeSabre. I know a Honda and a Toyota can go upto 250K miles and a Lincoln can go even more, but how much can a Buick LeSabre go upto? What are the common problems found in a Buick LeSabre and is it very expensive to repair those? When should the timing/engine belt of a Buick LeSabre be changed and how often should the oil be changed? Any words of advice will be greatly appreciated.

Well maintained with regular oil changes. . .250K is not unheard of.

Any car that hasn't been regularly maintained can be a pile of junk no matter what make and model it is. Who knows? Maybe the oil, coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and associated filters have never been changed. Or worse yet, the used car dealer finally changed them one time and steamed cleaned the engine just before he sold you the car. Even with excellent maintenance, expect the transmission to fail before 150,000 miles. And what about collision damage? Can you tell if its ever been in a major accident? How about a nice new Toyota Corolla?

Re: How much miles can one get from a Buick LeSabre. Very reliable car. The only pro

Very reliable car. The only problems with these is the intake gasket leaking (about $400.00 repair) once it is repaired though it has no further problems. We have them come into the shop with 200,000 + miles all the time. They are a great road car. They even get about 30 MPG!!! Change the oil & rotate the tires every 5,000 miles and enjoy driving a comfortable American car that gets no attention from the cops. It is a good buy, go for it!!!



Do be sure to have a BUICK DEALER look over the vehicle before you buy it. If this costs you $100.00 it is a wise decision, beware the bad cars/sales people of the world... do your part to insure your happines with the vehicle.

I know this is old but if your gonna buy some Buick you might want to take a look on some Buick TSB. Sort of the list of all recalls Buick has.

I get 20mpg in town and steel 30 mpg on the highway and have over 150,000 miles on this car. As per you see any vehicle, there are many factors that determine MPG. Wheel alignment, proper tune-up, tire inflation etc. And Speed travelled is also a factor as well as engine size.
