"Framebreaker" Death Trap
WARNING!!! Major frame rot!!! The frame in front is supported by four rubber bushings. When the vehicle gets excess rot under the body, these mounts give way causing the motor, transmission and whole frame to drop out of car. As this happens, the steering rod pulls apart, causing steering loss. The Park Avenue has this problem throughout different model years. The car's top body looks like new. Beware under the car! Look for rot in the spots where the rubber mounts attach. Also the rear frame area has the same issue. Please take this advice seriously!!!
WARNING TO ALL!!! This car has major frame rot issues, causing frame-to-body separation!!! This problem happens when the lower front frame gets slightly rotted, causing the rubber mounts to slip out of place. Thus, the whole frame sub-body drops, pulling on the steering rod which separates from the gearbox.
This is a classy, smooth riding car. It has a great interior and a really good, strong motor- except for this major problem.
Please take my advice seriously!!! I have had three Buick Park Avenue cars, all had the same problem. Take care!
