2000 Buick Park Avenue Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Buick’s luxury line adds the StabiliTrak skid-control feature as a new option for the base Park Avenue and a new standard amenity for the top-shelf Ultra model. Anti-lock brakes are standard on both, and traction control is standard on the Ultra, optional on the base.

The front-drive Park Avenue was redesigned for the 1997 model using a basic platform (or architecture) also found on the Buick LeSabre, Pontiac Bonneville and new Cadillac DeVille. These cars have different styling and dimensions, so they are not clones.

Exterior
The Park Avenue has the same basic look as Buick’s other sedans, only bigger. At 207 inches stem to stern, it is 7 inches longer than the LeSabre, its lower-priced, family-oriented counterpart.

Both the base model and the Ultra have a classic Buick-style grille with vertical chrome bars. The Ultra has less chrome trim and different aluminum wheels to differentiate it from the base Park Avenue.

Interior
The roomy interior has standard seats for six, though on both models the front bench is split 55/45, shaped for two and comes with a folding center armrest that contains cup holders and storage space. Bucket seats are optional on the Ultra.

Leather is standard on the Ultra, optional on the base, and the wood trim in the Ultra is real. The spacious trunk holds 19 cubic feet of cargo, and a pass-through behind the rear center armrest accommodates long, narrow items.

Under the Hood
Base models come with a 205-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6...

Under the Hood
Base models come with a 205-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6, and Ultras pack a supercharged version of this engine with 240 horsepower. The base engine takes regular gas and the supercharged one requires premium fuel. Both team with a four-speed automatic transmission.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
