Shame on GM!
By Gidge on

Vehicle

1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan

Review

Sharp car but GM refuses to make good on all the 3800 engines damaged by plastic intake manifolds (class action lawsuit only gives you $50 or so unless the entire engine is replaced & then what you get won't cover it.) (GM wonders why people are buying other brands?) Replaced alternator, battery, pwr st. pump, transmission parts, warped rotors, Intake manifold, I/M gaskets separately (which are now leaking again for 3rd time) ashtray replaced psgr seat controls replaced, wipers very erratic, Rear air shocks, front strut mounts bad, had to pull engine mount just to replace serpentine belt, repeated problems with rough upshift, (dealer says" no code, no problem") Gets 30-4o mpg highway. Nice ride.

Best Features

Radio/heater controls in steering wheel, driver 1 & 2 memory, exceptional interior & trunk room, quiet comfortable ride. exceptional highway mileage for big luxury car

Worst Features

GM must stop lying that there is no problem with their 3800 engines intake manifold! My husbands Bonneville has same engine and had to replace it due to same problem! Too unreliable! My mechanic pulled out the DEXCOOL antifreeze.
