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.

2002 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 022007

LeSabre v6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I too am really P'Oed about this. It is encroaching on my passengers air bag. It looks trashy. I have had this car since it was new and they said it is because it is in the sun. I told them that I didn't know of a hat that I could buy for the damn car. That is like saying my house isn't meant to be in the sun. Then they proceeded to tell me that they could replace it for around $1400,,,,,whatever. This is an inferior product. My husband is Border Patrol at a checkpoint and every Buick Le Sabre that he sees has the same problem. No wonder GM needed a bailout, take your jobs overseas and they will make crap. I wont buy another GM. Maybe Honda, at least they are made by Americans!!!!!

My 2002 Buick LeSabre dashboard is coming up, peeling way from the window, scared the air bag is going to open up. No dealer or auto shop can fix this problem. I really can't afford to buy a new car, I really need to know why GMC Buick is not standing by their inferior workman ship on this car. I would never buy a Honda or Toyota like some people suggested. I have been buying AMERICAN CARS since I was 18 years old and I am 68 now and have no desire to change.

Buick need to step up to the plate and take car of this problem.

LeSabre Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,025 miles

I was working on the car and for the first time, I've noticed that the dash is separating where it meets the hard panel about 6" from the base of the windshield. The separation is about 70% of the dash. I hope GM will stand up to it but I doubt it.
