2000 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

What a pita this 2000 Lesabre has been. I will never purchase another Buick. (the least impactive of the five window failures); on a local freeway, I touched the right passenger switch and the window dropped open. Even though it was during winter months, I was able to make it home, open the door panel and wedge the window closed (duct tape). I cannot remember the details of all of the failures, but I am very fortunate that my wife was not driving in a bad neighborhood when any of them happened. The first couple of them occurred during the warranty. I asked to talk to the zone person after the 2nd occurrence. No joy with that experience. I was totally ignored. Thank god I have mechanical abilities (dad). I discovered that I could purchase for a whole hell of a lot less off of the internet a new/refurb unit rather than paying the extortionist rates of the garage. All four windows have been replaced, and the drivers window, 2X. The last was in the driveway, and I tried to open the driver's window. You know the noise of the snap of the device within the door panel. I ordered a new opener within an hour. This never should happen with a reputable manufacturer.

Could not stop, brake fluid lost, rusted rear brake lines. Drivers side window does not go down and then starts working day after. Front brake lines also rusted and am afraid I will have accident if brakes fail again. Only rear brakes were replaced. It looked like brake line had been rubbing on body, making a hole in rusted brake line.

Dashboard cover lifting at driver side sight-line approximately at 1 O'clock position (straight ahead is 12 O'clock) over about a one foot width, where dashboard meets windshield. Height of rise maybe only an inch now but getting worse. Headliner also falling from overhead blocking driver's rearward view through rear view mirror.

The contact owns a 2000 Buick Lesabre. The contact stated that while the rear windshield defrosting system was activated, the rear windshield fractured and had burnt marks along the frame tinted area. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure and current mileage was not available.
