I am trying to get information on a recall for my 2001 Buick Lesabre. I spoke with Buick and they acknowledged there was a recall for engine coolant leaks, but apparently being the second owner of the vehicle I was not notified. I am now having problems with engine coolant leaking into the motor. I have 73,000 miles on the vehicle and the dealer states it is age and mileage. I am not sure!!!!!! I feel if there was a recall due to a defective gasket which caused these leaks then I should be covered under that recall"?? from what I could learn from your site Buick had a recall for their regal and Pontiac Grand Prix. It is GM recall. #07035. I know I have a Lesabre, but it seems to be having the same problems. Is there a recall on my vehicle also?"it supposedly is affecting over 20,764 vehicles and the 2001-2003 models won't be notified right away. Prior years were notified April 2008. I am a second owner so not sure if I would ever be notified. Please advise.
