Review

Purchased used in 05 $4500 never regretted having a Buick. Best mileage 38 average 27 on long trips. We like the 8 way seats and all the gadgets that came with the car. We have another Park Ave a 92 and what a nice car this is our fifth Buick all Park Avenues. Today it has 155,000 miles and we expect another 100,000 plus miles.


Favorite Features

8 way heated seats and smooth ride. Extra large trunk.


Suggested Improvements

To be able to obtain all parts from an auto parts dealer. Not from Buick such as the rear air shocks.

Review

I just got this car from my dad who couldn't drive it anymore, reviews are helpful... Gas gauge dances all over the place, windshield wiper stopped in the middle of windshield on off position, door lock button and window button fell into door.. But its 12 years old. Engine runs great, smooth on the highway and very very comfortable. Cup holder folding into armrest is annoying. Love the safe feeling of the car, will ride it till the wheels fall off, changing oil to keep it going! Janet


Favorite Features

seats comfortable, safe feeling ( i was rear ended in a smaller car last year, love this big safe feeling)


Suggested Improvements

fold in cup holder is awful! gas gauge and driver door buttons and toggles seem to break down in this model, brighter headlights

Review

Same problems everybody else had, manifold melted oil and anti freeze mixed trahed engine found out when we replaced motor sensors were glued back on after being snapped , ,Nice, paint peeling off the trunk spreading like cancer the bug shield plastic wrap crap on the hood peeling, sunroof warped closes 1/4" lower on one side, control pad on both seats hang out, yup glad to know I'm not alone lol


Favorite Features

looks good at night,smooth ride ,looks like an unmarked police car,people always grab for their seatbelts when they see me driving lol and they slow down probably why it has never been broken into


Suggested Improvements

better engine , better paint job no wonder their broke, you make crap and then don't honor your crappy workmanship , no one is going to buy anything from you anymore.i wont anyways

Review

We bought this car from our neighbor. He had bought it used. I love this car. It drives like a dream. I has given me very little trouble. (Battery, plugs, tires, etc.) The only complaint that I have is the paint on the trunk has flaked off. Other than this, I love it.


Favorite Features

The comfort of the ride, the ease of hugging the road.


Suggested Improvements

MAke the paint a better grade so that it will not flake off.
