While other cars keep trying to reinvent themselves, Buick LeSabre keeps refining a very successful formula: Start with a design big enough to allow six adults to ride in comfort. Wrap it in beautifully sculpted sheet metal that will stay in style for years to come. Give it an interior with thick carpet and fine upholstery. Fill it with extra touches that help make driving a pleasure. Build in a smooth, quiet ride and sure handling.
Then assemble it with special care and craftsmanship, so it feels safe and secure for the whole family. That’s the thinking that goes into every Buick Buick LeSabre. All of which makes it easy to understand why Buick LeSabre has been America’s best-selling full-size car for twelve straight years.

The 3800 Series II engine is a benchmark for pushrodactuated, overhead valve V6 engines. It excels in packaging efficiency, smoothness and reliability. And, measured by output, efficiency* and emissions, it equals or bests many overhead-cam engines while delivering impressive lowspeed power and response.
This 3.8L V6 engine has earned a special place in automotive history. It was named one of “The 10 Best Engines of the 20th Century” by Ward’s AutoWorld magazine. There are good reasons why it deserves such an honor. The 3800 Series II V6 generates the kind of potent energy Buick LeSabre drivers demand to accelerate from a stoplight and down the road with confidence. Its overhead valve design assures impressive low rpm power and torque.

10,000-mile oil change intervals. Advances in lubricants have allowed engineers to extend the maximum recommended oil change interval on Buick LeSabre up to 10,000 miles, when the GF-3 (Gasoline Fueled, Standard 3) motor oil is used. Buick still recommends an oil change at least once a year or when the Oil Life System signals an oil change is needed. 150,000-mile coolant. The days of having to change your anti-freeze once a year are long gone.
Buick LeSabre comes with Dexcool in the cooling system. It’s designed to go up to 150,000 miles before it needs replacing. For the average driver, that’s ten years away. Up to 100,000-mile iridium spark plugs. Iridium is a precious, silver-white metal (No.77 on the periodic table) and one of the densest materials on earth. These platinum-tipped spark plugs have an iridium core that allows the plugs to fire with less voltage and improve combustion efficiency.
If you changed your oil only when it was really necessary, you’d save time and money, avoid inconvenience, and protect the environment. But how would you know when your oil was nearing the end of its useful life? The 2015 buick verano owners manual engine has a powerful computer that is constantly recording engine speed, temperature, load or rpm variance, and the time of engine operation at any given load and temperature. With this information, the Oil Life System calculates oil degradation and recommends an oil change when one is actually needed.
Buick LeSabre’s anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses four wheelspeed sensors, one at each wheel, to constantly monitor the speed at which each wheel is turning, and to send that data to the powertrain control module (PCM) computer.
If, under braking conditions, the PCM detects that a wheel is about to lock-up, it takes control and modulates, or pulses the brake on and off faster than humanly possible. Pulsing the brakes allows the wheel to brake while continuing to rotate, so instead of skidding on the few square inches of tire tread in contact with the road, the driver is able to retain steering control to help steer the vehicle out of trouble.
