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.

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • 95,718 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Buick Lesabre. While driving at 25 mph, the engine overheated. The contact also stated that the vehicle fuel gauge fluctuated from empty to full, but never fully displayed the correct amount of fuel. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the intake gasket needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 95,718. Updated 8/10/15 the fuel sending unit was replaced twice. Updated 10/29/15. Updated 03/29/16. The consumer stated the fuel gauge would always indicate it was full. However, the low fuel light would illuminate. Updated 05/17/16.

I bought this car May 2010 from gregory automotive group in new castle de. I immediately had a propblem with the speedometer the day I bought it, took it back to the dealership and was told that it wasnt a big deal, this problem was covered by by warranty and I would just need to pay a $100 deductible. I took it to my local Buick dealership and they told me that it isn't covered under the warranty I bought from the dealer and I would have to pay out of pocket for the repairs. My next issue is the gas gauge started to mess up; wrong readings and gas levels left me out of gas and very upset. I will be taking this back to Buick to see if I am at all eligible to recieve recall benefits or something because the amount to fix these issues are greater than I can afford within the year and some change of owning the veh. And I also want to say I did research and do a carfax on the car and it came back with accurate mileage, one owner and no accidents and I jumped on it, only to have a nice car without a working speedometer and gas gauge. I thought Buick were good solid cars......

Speedometer and gas gauge stopped working at 32,000. Speedometer works sometimes. Gas gauge registers passed full, and in the 7 O'clock position. I need to keep track of my mileage per tank full at - to not go beyond 300 mile range before I need to fill up the tank.
