I moved to the Buick Park Avenue from
Volvo ownership based on the
recommendations of my car dealer. I
buy ucars that have high quality but
are unfairly depreciated. This is a
car that you can buy used for a great
price and expect 250,000 miles.
Bought the car with +70,000 miles and
it is still all original at 197,000
miles. It has been a phenomenally
reliable car. Fit and finish is above
average and the interior remains in
good shape. The power seats provide
excellent support on long road trips.
I was surprised by the gas mileage,
above 26 mpg on the highway.
This car is quiet, well mannered and
easy to maintain. Brake repairs are
the only minus, but
Quality - construction/material
quality is above average.
Appearance - the car has an elegant
Interior - the car has huge space
capacity and will carry 5 adults in
comfort. Trunk is very large.
Gas Mileage - a full size sedan that
gets great mileage (regular fuel to
Buick has since improved the brakes
and gotten rid of the weak rear drum
brakes in newer models. Lose the hood
ornaments and other tacky decoration.
