1997 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan
I purchased this car when it was 4 years old for a mere $10,500! At the time it had 71,000 miles and was in a very good shape. This car turned me into strong Buick fan and I don't want to part with it as long as possible. In the last 7 years I had some issues, but they were not serious enough to cost a lot of money. I was seriously considering buying another Park Avenue.
Comfort - great for long trips. Fuel economy - outstanding. I am averaging 26-27 mpg, personal record is 31.8 mpg on a 340 highway miles trip). Good quality. Interior ergonomics is the best of any car I have ever driven. No central console
These things drive me crazy at times: Automatic windshield wipers - no control over their speed whatsoever. Uncomfortable headrests
