Power steering problem - when you turn the steering wheel, there is an unusual noise and you can feel a viberation while parked and while moving. I took this car to the dealer I purched the car from on Sept. 14, 2001. Mr. Jay wakefield, general manager and Mr. Tom berry, service manager acknowledged my problem. However, both said the manufacturer was aware of the problem because it has happened to other cars. So far they have not found the solution. They also said I would have to live with the problem until the mfg. Notifies them what to do. I do not feel safe driving the car in this condition. The tires have been an on going problem since I purchased this car. Wakefield Buick did put two new tires on several weeks after I purchased. The tires causes the car to viberate when you get up to 60 mph and up. I mentioned this problem to jay wakefield but he was not symphetic with my tire problem. I will have to put new tires on at my expense. I know several people that has bought Buick Lesabre and they had the same problem I am having. After purchasing a diffrent brand of tire the problem went away. (tiresize: P215/70R15)

Steering is uncontrolled and causes the vehicle to float from right to left, dealer replaced the rack and pinion which improved the problem a little bit, however the problem still persists, possibly a suspension or steering problem.

This car almost continuously wanders from one side of a lane to the other. It is extremely dangerous to drive especially in tight traffic conditions. You spend all of your time steering back and forth to try and keep it going straight. On breezy days forget it, you can feel the car swaying back and forth under you making it even more difficult to control. I filled out a questionnaire from GM when I first got the car and told them "between the sloppy suspension and the over sensitive steering, this is the worst car I have ever driven" and I meant it.
