Fuel gauge became erratic and no longer reflected the actual amount of fuel in the tank note: I have two 2001 Buick Lesabre. My other one (VIN [xxx]) developed the same problem around December 2012 - mileage: 64,447. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Passenger window would not go up July 2011. One week later left rear passenger window would not function. February 2012 right rear window failed. April 2012 left rear window would not go down. Fortunately, it was under warranty. So far, the windows have cost me $735 in less than a year. Catalytic converter rattles a lot in morning when car is cold. Only a matter of time before it will need to be replaced. Was told by aamco can be replaced at Buick's expense, but have not been able to confirm this.

Fuel leaking from rear of engine fuel line. My wife noticed a strong smell of fuel in our garage. I took the vehicle to our local Buick/GMC dealer in las vegas, nv. The dealer identified a "rear feed fuel line leaking, seal worn internally". upon inquiry there is a "national backorder" for the fuel line assembly (at $600 plus dollars for the part alone). I understood from one of the mechanics, that it seems to be a common problem. I contacted Buick, but they declined the repair claiming that "motor vehicles are complex machinery and sometimes require repairs". I would agree with that statement if it did not involve leaky fuel lines, and a potential fire hazard !! please help.
