Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #3

LeSabre Custom 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,500 miles


Driver side wheel wobble above 50mph when going downhill or level road.

This car was Grandma & Grampa's car. The miles are under 25,000. I jacked up both front wheels and checked side-to-side play. About an inch, more on the drivers side, which is where the problem seems to be.

The car has the bad window nylon roller problem, as well as the ride-leveling feature which never worked, even when the car was brand new. Problem exists with or without ride-level which puts rear end up high. Problem is lessened to some extent when the ride-leveing feature is disabled and the air bled off.

Seems to me that the toe-in spec. is not quite right, as in an error in publishing, leading to a number of incidences of front-end tire wobble as normal wear is experienced. Buick should check thier records and design specifications for alignment.

LeSabre 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles

Have a touring package, and rarely anyone in the back seats...but when two people are sitting in the back, the front right tire seems to be greatly out of balance above about 50 mph. Wheel IS NOT out of balance.....have had aligned, new tire rod, new axle and bearing......not part of this problem . Rarely have anyone in rear seats, so don't know how long this may have been a problem.....afraid to go to dealership because they rip you off just looking at it.....

Experiencing "wobble" in the right front suspension of car while accelerating from 40 to 45 MPH. Feels like a tire with a slipped belt. I replaced the tire, but did not cure problem. Took the car to the dealer and they replaced the tie rod ends, which reduced the wobble for about two weeks. Problem is still there.
