1990 Buick Park Avenue from North America
A great car for a family of six or just for someone who likes trips
The power antenna didn't work.
During the first two months the 'Check Engine' light came on and never went off.
Driver-side window goes down; but does not go up without taking the window control out of the door and press against the switch. Tried replacing it with new, but did not help.
At 230,000 the fuel gage occasionally flashes, resets, or not even show.
The car is fast to go from a complete stop.
Loud and annoying horn; I love it. I want one on my next car.
Took it driving on ice one year and performed excellent.
The car is very large and great on long trips took it to Dallas, Texas to Little Rock, Arkansas; with no complaints.
This car was a real bargain. I paid only $2,700. And I never had any major problems with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Dear Buick Park Avenue Specialist: I have a 1990 Park Avenue which I love. I take good care of the car making sure the oil is changed regularly, tires are rotated, etc. The other day I was replacing the air filter and noticed the air intake “valve” located on the bottom of the filter unit was brittle and falling apart. I went to my dealer and got a replacement and put it in. Unfortunately the display panel now says, you guessed it, service engine. It does not come on right away, but maybe a couple of minutes riding down the road it goes on, does not stay on, but will intermittently come on while driving. Other than that I have no problems with the car. If I read my Chilton’s book correctly, if I disconnect the battery for 10 to 15 minutes it will restart the computer? Did I read correctly. Remember I’m a complete amateur with this. My stepfather passed away and I inherited this vehicle. I swear he lives on inside this engine so I am especially careful with the upkeep. Thank you for your help. Doreen.
