Park Avenue

  • 157,800 miles


At approximately 157800 miles, drivers' side electric door lock became inoperable, unable to open door from inside with manual controls, unable to unlock door with remote and unable to open door with key from outside. Cannot open door to effect repairs as discovered online (ytube) as inside panel must be removed with door open. Must make entry from passenger side. If passenger side door lock freezes or if an accident occurs on passenger side would be unable to get out of vehicle. And now the rear drivers side door has done the same and cannot be opened or unlocked. Obviously the car is stationary when attempting to open or unlock the doors.

Park Avenue

  • 95,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Buick Park Avenue. The contact stated that the computer that controls the entire vehicle has failed. The vehicle has shut off 32 times while driving 55 mph in heavy traffic. The warranty was expired; therefore, the manufacturer cannot assist. The dealer stated that the computer malfunctioned in the vehicle. The contact feels that this is a safety issue because a crash could have occurred. The current and failure mileages were 95,000.

Park Avenue 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
My Buick Park Avenue has 13K miles. While driving the instrument gauges (tach, speedometer) started to pulsate back and forth for 0 to their max. They eventually went to 0 and the other gauges stopped working as well. This has happened 4 times. The dealer does not know what the problem is and currently has the vehicle in the shop. He suggested that the entire instrument panel will need to be replaced and it will not be covered under warranty (because the car is more than 3 years old.) I noticed that this problem is identical to the problem stated in another complaint (reference # 8011746) I wish I knew what they did to correct that problem. I find it hard to believe that the entire instrument panel has to be replaced and not be covered under warranty.

Park Avenue 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,700 miles
2000 Buick Park Avenue. The engine started racing so bad that you have to apply the brakes to keep the auto under 60mph. The dealer said water got into the computer and shorted the PCM. It was replacedat a cost of $640. 30 days later it occured again. The dealer opened the computer area and water was again there. They said the PCM was bad and the wiring harness needs replacement with a new designed harness that won't let water in.this cost is $1700 this is obviously a design flaw that GM won't cover. The saftey issue is a major concern. Please advise.
