1997 Disaster
By Judd on


1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan


I purchased this low milage car just recently from a person I know well. He took painstaking care of it. It looks brand new inside and out. Within two months the door lock button popped inside the door. The transmission failed and cost $1975 to rebuild. The ash tray broke and won't stay closed. The volume button on the steering wheel functions some of the time. The self- leveling feature has failed and I shudder to think what that will cost to fix. This could be a wonderful car if it was better built. I have had many GM cars over the years most of them purchased new (I still have my 84 El Camino) but this is the last one.

Best Features

Ride (until the self-level feature broke), interior comfort, heated seats, key controls on the steering wheel (until the volume control malfinctioned), auto variable wipers, driver preference memory system and the sound system.

Worst Features

One word....RELIABILITY. The 97 Park Ave is a disaster. GM should be ashamed.
