I'll never buy another
By mrmark on


1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan


This is the third Buick I have owned.
The two previous ones were LeSabres. I
have just spent $5100 on a new engine
because the plastic manifold plenum
used by GM caused my engine to fill up
with water and caused major damage.
The window switch has broken, the car
gets water inside the passenger area
when in a car wash or in the rain. The
rotors have been replaced because of
warpage, the water pump was replaced,
the air compressor was replaced, the
sensing wipers have not worked
properly, the ash tray broke and will
not close, the seat control panel
snapped off.

Best Features

Gas mileage is excellent for a large car. That is, before the engine trouble started. Head and leg room are good.

Worst Features

Recall the cars to fix the intake manifold and get rid of the plastic on the engine. Use better rotors for the braking system.
