1997 Park Avenue has difficulties with the electrical system. Vehicle's engine blew up at 89,000 miles because the intake manifold leaked engine coolant into the engine and caused it to seize. In seven years the consumer had to replace the vehicle's battery five times. *****

The A/C will turn on again after I turn it off. The radio will shift to cassette and back while displaying E33. Drivers window will come down unevenly and get wedged. The alternater went out and the bottom bolt stripped during removal. There is a lurch sometimes during shifting.
