1996 Buick Lesabre Custom Sedan 4 Door, Good Condition on 2040-cars
Warren, Michigan, United States
This 1996 Buick LeSabre has been my car for over four years,
now, preceded by a Buick '88. It's because of these two vehicles that
I've decided not to leave the Buick 3800 class. I'm sad to see this car
go. I would certainly take it with me if I could. I have faith that
Buick will soon add amphibious capabilities to the LeSabres, but until
then, this one cannot follow me to Europe.
After 151,000 miles, this LeSabre still drives like a dream. It was
owned by an old man who had kept it in pristine shape. I bought it from
Motor City Auction whilst it was at the 88k mark. I was made aware
before I bought it that the 90's LeSabres were often fitted with
bum head gaskets. A quick check of the car records showed that the head
gasket had already been replaced by the old man. Since, I've only had
to replace a battery and the fuel pump, as well as more recently, the
wheels thanks to a rough winter. I still possess the original wheels
(as only one rim was cracked -- the rest were in fine condition) so if
you are interested, let me know. I've provided regular oil changes and
basic maintenance. In preparation for sale I've done its final oil
change, replaced the brake lines, and equipped a new battery.
The car is clean, though "lived in". The old man may have taken
pristine care of it but I am not an old man. The upholstery on the
seats is perfect, but there are a couple holes in the ceiling upholstery
and a couple stains on the carpet underneath the floor covers. The
driver side power window control works but is pushed a bit into the
armrest. It takes two fingers to open and close any window in the car
from that seat. The car is beginning to rust at the bottom exterior.
You are more than
welcome to visit and take a test drive. The car is in Warren; call or
email for address and to make an appointment. Additional
photos/information available upon request.

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.

As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
At this point, Bob Seger feels like the living embodiment of old-school rock 'n' roll. The Michigan native has been strumming out classic records like Night Moves for decades, and he just released a new single called Detroit Made. It sounds like a future staple of just about every classic car show within the next few years, and the video is dedicated to the Motor City, past and future.

Detroit Made is all about cruising in the city in a classic Buick Electra 225, perhaps better known as a "deuce and a quarter." It's straight-down-the-middle rock and could just as easily be from a decades-old Seger album as something new.
The video for the new single mixes shots of American classics cruising along Woodward Avenue with a contemporary look at the city. Sure, there are the well-known dilapidated buildings falling into rubble, but the people there aren't just letting the city die. Other parts show the attempts to clean things up and rebuild. Check out the video if you need a few minutes of old school rockin' in your life.
Drive down the Autobahn and there's any number of vehicles likely to pass you, and most of them are produced locally. But if you're wondering how that Opel left you in its dust, look closely (and quickly) enough and you might make out the letters OPC on the back.
They stand for Opel Performance Center (the German counterpart to Vauxhall's VXR line) and they adorn performance versions of the Corsa, Astra and Insignia. The latter is undergoing a bit of a refresh and is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in a couple of weeks, but you don't have to wait that long as our intrepid spy photographers have caught it in the flesh outside an Opel facility in Germany.
Spied here completely undisguised in Sports Tourer (read: wagon) form, the Insignia has had a few nips and tucks performed, but we'll be more intrigued to see what it's got under the hood. The current model packs a 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6 driving 325 horsepower to all four wheels, but rumors suggest that the OPC (yeah you know me!) could have as much as 400 hp up its sleeve. That would make this one heck of a sleeper - especially in wagon form - and only make us pine for a more potent version of its twin Buick Regal to roam our highways, too.
