Notes: If you're in the market for a used, comfortably-oversized luxury sedan, you could do worse than the 2005 Buick Park Avenue.

This was the last model year the Park Avenue was available in the US market, and there's just not that many complaints about it. Plus, it has a hood ornament! There just aren't enough cars with hood ornaments anymore. Just make sure you avoid getting rear-ended as the car did very poorly in rear-impact crash tests.

The contact owns a 2005 Buick Park Avenue. The contact stated that there was corrosion present on three of the four wheels that prohibited the bead on the tire from sealing. The failure caused the tire to leak air abnormally. The contact stated that he would have to add at least ten pounds of air to the tires per week. The vehicle was taken to two different dealers who both advised that the wheels would need to be repaired. The contact called the manufacturer who took a complaint but provided no further assistance. The vehicle was not repaired and the VIN was unavailable. The current mileage was approximately 100,000 and the failure mileage was approximately 89,000.

The contact owns a 2005 Buick Park Avenue. The vehicle was parked when the contact noticed that the tires were under inflated.

No repairs were performed on the vehicle but the contact had to inflate the tires very frequently to maintain proper air pressure. The failure mileage was 56,000 and the current mileage was 58,000.

Park Avenue

The chrome plating on my wheels has large bubbles which caused three of my tires to lose air. Luckily the low tire pressure warning light came on. I was on an interstate and by the time I found a gas station the tires were between fifteen and twenty pounds. Luckily I knew enough to slow down or I would have had a blow-out.
