1997 Buick Park Avenue 4 Dr Ultra Supercharged Sedan Review


Supercharger = fast, lots of space, comfortable


looks like an old man car


Comfortable Reliable Car — this is a comfortable, Reliable and very spacious vehicle. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good family car or road trip car. I have had no problems whatsoever with this car, it maybe goes through brakes a little too quickly.

1997 Buick Park Avenue 4 Dr STD Sedan Review


Great ride, gas milage and easy to drive


Cheap matrials


My Tenth Car — Large car with a very smooth and quiet ride. Very good on gas for such a large car. Very easy to drive and good for long haul drives. It had good performance as well. Only issue was the plastic plenum which started leaking and ruined the AC system. The first dealership missed the cause but fixed the AC. Then I broke down again. 4000 dollars later it was fixed because of a cheap plastic part.

1997 Buick Park Avenue 4 Dr Ultra Supercharged Sedan Review


has many extras, and a great car overall.


it is rusting and chipping paint, plus doesn't have the best gas milage out there.


A Very Loving Car... — My car is about 12 years old, and for it's age it's really quite nice. It has also gone through 4 people in my family, and has been passed down until it has gotten to me, not bad for a well used car. The outside of the car has been peeling paint and has been rusting in many places under the car as well as the body. As for performance it handles exelent and brakes well, also it accelerates very well. The gas milage isn't horrible, I get about 16 miles to the gallon. The only problemi my gas gage does not work so I have to be careful and keep track of the gas that is in my car. It has many extras that are very helpful. Plus it has an amazing horn... it's like a train horn!

Bought it at a great price and is fairly economical. Would be more so if I maintained it better...


Needs repainted. -The main reason I got such a great price on it. PS reservoir is very difficult to reach.


I Like This Car. I Especially Would Like To Get New Paint. — Really have few negative things to say. A/C compressor went out and got that fixed. Now it blows hot air on the drivers side, but I think I know what that is. The Supercharger belt came off and it still runs. I need to take it on a long road trip though. I would like to see how it holds up over 400 or 500 miles.
