1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan


Vehicle with excellent potential.
comfortable and quiet. Decent
acceleration, good handling(with
touring suspension) an honest 30 MPG
highway and room for six -- in compfort

Minuses: mechanicals not as robust as
they should be. Replaced brake rotors
twice from warpage, replaced a
waterpump at 32000 miles
(disgraceful), the power window switch
has been replaced once and has failed
again, the moisture sensing wipers have
never worked properly -- but who needs
them. Now, the oil pan gasket is
leaking and it's a $375 repair, and I
know three others with same engine and
same oil pan problem.

I'd buy another, though, as nothing
else in the domstic market compares.

Best Features

Quiet ride and decent handling. Fuel economy outstanding for a big car.

Worst Features

Strengthen the water pump, fix the oil pan gasket and dump the moisture sensing wipers.
