1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought this used from a reliable friend mechanic. In no time the paint was fading and peeling, the plastic manifold broke & quite a big repair bill even fixing it ourselves & buying parts on the net. Air conditioning went & had to replace condensor etc, The front power seat mechanism works, but is popped out of the seat. Seatbuckles broke. Something has happened to the struts. We've nearly always owned GM since my husband retired from there. Owned an Olds that went almost 300K miles until hit when stopped. Only one time failed to start when the timing chain needed replacing at way over 100K. We have lost a bundle on this Buick. Really a shame and sorrowful!

Favorite Features

Heated seats, automatic wipers that come on when needed but none of this worth the problems with it and money lost.

Suggested Improvements

Of course the manifold was wrong from the beginning and I don't know what to fix such a car as this, but it seems like GM should have known better than to put out a car of such a disaster. Too bad at our age and such Buick satisfaction we get one like this.
