I bought this so I could have a big luxury car, yet also wanted to be able to get wife and all 4 of my kids in if necessary. Great on cruising interstates, and pretty good on curvy roads as well. It's very roomy and comfortable with a large trunk. Surprisingly great gas mileage, around 27-30 on highway. It has served my purposes well as a luxury car for business driving, yet it's good for family trips. It's reliable with no mechanical or engine problems, and gets good gas mileage for a car of this size to boot.
Smooth ride particularly on highways, and surprisingly good gas mileage.
Automatic moisture sensing wiper system is overly sensitive and I would prefer to just manually adjust intermittent wipers.
I purchased my Ultra in Woodbridge
Virginia with 74,500 miles and it has
been a great car. I like the size of
the car and it rides like a limo on the
highway. The only problems I've had was
with getting the fan, supercharger
belts and water pump replaced at
125,000 miles for over $700. I've also
had the front brake roters replaced
twice due to warpage. The car runs
great still and I now have over 144,000
miles on it. I believe I'll get over
200,000 on it like the Olds Regency I
still own with over 211,000 miles on it
which my son crashed it for me.
Heated seats, auto whipers, traction
control, 2 zone heating/cooling, power
and gas mileage, handling and ride,
This is the fourth Park Ave. that I
have owned. I have 145,000 miles on
this car now and I am shopping for
another one just like it. It is a
sporty large comfortable car. With only
a few minor problems in the four years
I have owned it, I would highly
recommend a Park Avenue Ultra for a
consumer who needs ultimate comfort and
reliability, and styling.
