1990 Buick Electra Sedan Park Avenue 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new from the dealer in hopes of driving a beast. It accelerates like a raging bull on steroids. You get to the 60 miles per hour mark in a neck snapping 14.6 seconds. The sumptuous angles spark emotions like fire in the night. The suspension rides like a a magic carpet on a silk laden cloud with wheels of cream. I know this because I took a speed bump at a blistering 75 mph and I felt nothing but a jibber. Stepping on the accelerator pedal is like playing a game of pinball. Fun, but there are many strange noises. I hit the engine revolution limiter yesterday and it sounded like a grackel crowing at the edge of a willow forest at daybreak. This car is sleek yet powerful.


Favorite Features

The fiery emotions evoked from the wave of heat that erupts when you ecclipse 85 on the miles per hour indicator.


Suggested Improvements

The interior fires off the emotions that can only be compared to that of a vinyl record - classic, yet out of tune with the awe inspiring sheetmetal.

Review

We loved our Park Avenue. Super comfy seats with loads of room for tall people. We drove it for a year until some joker re-ended us and put an end to a lovely relationship! The 3.8L engine was a powerhouse but still got us 28 mpg on the highway. Very reliable car, rock solid and smooth on the road.


Favorite Features

Super comfy seats


Suggested Improvements

The car's self-leveling rear shocks were broken so the back end sat low. New shocks were major money so we opted for some air filled bladders that fit inside the rear coil springs. This $155.00 fit did the trick

Review

Car floats down the road. Extremely reliable. Very appealing astetically. The 3800 is a workhorse and is very fuel efficient for a larger car. Interior made from good quality materials. Would recommend this car for anyone who needs a good daily driver that provides true owner satisfaction.


Favorite Features

Wide doors for ease of entry and egress.
