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gasket had already been replaced by the old man.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.

JD Power has released its annual Sales Satisfaction Index Study, and once again Mini and Lexus have taken top honors. Overall, buyers are more satisfied with the auto-buying sales experience than they were last year, with those surveyed reporting an average score of 664 points on a 1,000-point scale. That's up from 648 in 2011. Dealer satisfaction also increased by five points over last year as well.

All told, Lexus brought home an index score of 737, which was high enough to put it atop the luxury brands for the second year in a row. JD Power says Infiniti came in second in that category with a score of 728 and Cadillac rounded out the podium with it's rating of 725. Speaking of Infiniti, that brand saw the single largest jump in sales satisfaction of any brand on the survey, popping up 52 index points over 2011.
Among mass-market brands, Mini ranked highest with a score of 712, followed closely by Buick with 706 and GMC farther down the line with 683. You can check out the full press release below for more information.
A few months ago I drove the 2014 Buick LaCrosse and wrote up a First Drive review of it. For all of my quibbles with that sedan (and I had a fair number), I understand that it speaks to the heart of what new Buick loyalists like in a car; it's roomy, has a cushy ride and is as placid as a summer's morning at highway speeds.

Those qualities, while undeniably desirable, don't mean a whole lot to me personally. I prefer sedans that conjure up words like "nimble," "punchy" or even "raucous" on occasion. So, directionally, the high-performance GS version of the 2014 Buick Regal is more my cup of tea than any other car in the company's current range.
In fact, I'd already come to know the Regal GS from its 2012 model year introduction, and grown more than a little fond of the sporting sedan in its original front-wheel-drive, six-speed-manual guise. The fast, sweet-handling car with well-sorted controls may have suffered from a slight identity crisis in terms of pricing (and may still), but it was undeniably fun to drive. So, when I heard that the GS was coming to market for 2014 with optional all-wheel drive (albeit only in combination with a six-speed automatic transmission), I was stoked to have another go and concentrated my driving impressions on the AWD car.
In May of 1903, Buick began work on its first vehicle, the 1904 Model B, the first example of which was sold to a doctor in Flint, Michigan. That first sale was appropriate since later on, Buick became known as a "doctor's car." The Model B is the first of 11 cars chosen by Buick to highlight each decade of the company's 110-year history.
The 1916 D-45 Touring with a six-cylinder engine was Buick's highest seller that year, and helped push overall sales past six figures for the first time, making Buick the top-selling automotive brand. In 1931, Series 50 got an eight-cylinder engine, which helped the company survive the Great Depression. The 1936 Century was the first Buick that could hit 100 miles per hour, the 1949 Roadmaster had a supporting role in Rain Man, the 1953 Skylark had Italian wire wheels and the owner's name engraved on its steering wheel.
Then we have the iconic 1963 Riviera, the V6-powered 1975 Regal, and in 1987, the legendary GNX. With a turbocharged, intercooled V6 pumping out 276-horsepower it could hit 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. In 1999 Buick built the first car in China, the Century, and that country remains the brand's largest market.
