1998 Park Avenue

1998 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan
This car has given excellent service over the last four years. It has only had two major failures both of which had to do with the plenium (intake manifold) rupturing and dumping water on the pistons. Neither instance seemed to have harmed performance in any way. The only other problem--last week the power steering unit fell off. I do not remember any specific thing I may have hit in the road that could have broken the bolts, but the car has had a couple of jolts from things which I ran over at high speed. One of which was the recap off a truck tire at night. It did warp a rim. It's cranked right away (179,000 miles) and it has been a great road car.
Rides comfortably and has enough zip to get around things on the road.
Intake manifold (plennum) needs to be redesigned. Seat upholstery could be better from a design standpoint.
