Default Hello, everyone!

My name is Tony and I live in Miami. I recently inherited a 1994 Buick LeSabre Custom with around 27,000 miles on the odometer. Light metallic blue with cloth interior. The car was bought new by my parents, but had sat in an enclosed garage little-used for at least a dozen years. It'* in like-new condition and looks great but I've had to replace the crank positioning sensor, tires, engine control module, plug wires, fuel injectors, and knock sensor. Also, all the fluids have been flushed and replaced. It now drives very well, but there are a few minor issues to sort out. Fortunately, the transmission and final drive seem to work fine (I've heard that GM had some tranny problems in the '90s) Hopefully, I'll end up with a nice cruiser that will last for years.

After owning several Hondas, I wasn't enthusiastic about owning a 3800 H-body. Grandpa car, right?. However, I've come to respect the car - it'* silky smooth, comfortable, torquey, quiet, and it actually has decent handling. Mileage is impressive too - close to 30 mpg on the interstates. I get a lot of comments on the car, and not just from old folks. I hope to post some pictures before long, and maybe I'll have a mechanical question or two. Until then, take care and I'll be back.

That'* a great car! Definitely something to keep for a while. Its very rare to have a car that old with such low mileage. Don't let that thing go easily. Should take you to 200,000 miles very easily and reliably.
