Vibration: Driving at any speed caused vibration with less than 30,000 miles on my 2002 Buick lasabre. Found that tie rods were worn and needed to be replaced. This vehicle was driven only on main roads and had never been in an accident involving the front end.

(reported on)

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,000 miles
While driving the consumer heard a rumbling noise. The noise gradually got worse as time progressed. The noise was caused by the tie rod ends being worn. The cause of the worn tie rod ends is yet to be determined. Consumer heard an unusual noise coming from the front of the vehicle. Consumer took vehicle to conklin cars and they replaced the tie rod ends.

I have a 2002 Buick lasabre, with 49000 miles on it. The transmission has gone bad on it, the tie rods are wore out and now, the rotors have rusted and are falling apart.
