1999 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had this car for a week now with 123,227 miles on it and i'm in love with it. The ride is better that most european cars i've had before. I'm a sales man so i drive arround a lot and this car makes me enjoy the road more each time i drive it. It's very good on the gas too and fits all my family comfortably. All it needs is a good paint job and it will look like new!!!


Favorite Features

Heads up display, radio controls in the steerin g wheel


Suggested Improvements

Reliable cup holders on the front

Review

Since i've owned this car i have done routine maintenance. i have had no problems with reliability. i have over 180,000 miles on the car, the 3.8L supercharged motor runs strong and gets great gas mileage. 32+mpg highway and in the city with traffic i can still get 23/25mpg. its a full size car that fits 6 people with every option.


Favorite Features

favorite features are by far the heads up display, power with supercharger. 9 speaker stereo. 5 cigarette lighters so everyone can charge there phone ipod etc


Suggested Improvements

the cup holders are the cheapest thing in the car. with the car being over 11 years old the driver side window is a little slow and air suspension has been getting squishy.

Review

The electronics will go out on you and expect to pay a few hundred to fix (rear defrost, seat adjuster). As everyone says, 30+ mpg highway (I once averaged over 38 on a 150 mile trip!) but in the city it's a dog, I'll get anywhere from 13-21 in the city. I think it looks great, and the sound system is amazing. Buy it if you want to be spoiled without burning a hole in your wallet.


Favorite Features

Ridiculously high Mpg


Suggested Improvements

Electronics could be made to last better.

Review

I bought my Park Ave used with 40K miles. This car is by far the best full size car I have ever owned. It is reliable as it is comfortable. In the past 60K miles, I have not had to replace anything major on the car. The 3.8 L engine is easy on gas and provides adequate power in typical driving conditions. The only negative I have experienced with the car is that the front brakes require above average maintenance. Overall, a small price to pay. The trunk space exceeds the available storage of a Pathfinder or Explorer (with the second row seat up). This is the vehicle of choice for my family vacations. My young son fittingly calls our Park Ave "The Comfy Car".


Favorite Features

Quiet ride, excellent fuel economy, comfortable seating for long trips.


Suggested Improvements

I wish Buick would bring the design back. This one won't last forever.

Review

I purchased my second 1999 Park Ave after trading in my first 99 for a 2004 Grand Prix. While the Grand Prix is sporty, it doesn't hold a candle to the size, ride, mpg and trouble free driving I have experienced with the Park Avenue. I routinely get over 30 mpg on the highway and over 20 mpg in the city, that is better than my 4 cylinder pick up truck! I purchase my current Buick with 57,000 miles on it and now have over 112,000 and have only had to perform routine maintenance on the vehicle. It is a comfortable, reliable ride that I never get tired of. I also have a 2007 Lucerne, but as nice as it is, I prefer my Park Ave and will replace it with another when the time comes.


Favorite Features

Ride and Reliability, the 3800 V6 is superb!

Absolutely nothing!

Review

Purchased it used and being in what seemed to be in decent shape. Love the ride and room. Get about 26 mph which I thought was a couple of mpg short. But it is supercharged. Traded in an older LS400 Lexus which I liked. But I think this rides better,just as comforable,and I would guess a lot less to repair. Haven't had to yet. Has 94000 miles now. This car looks like it's going to be a keeper. My next used car will probably be another Buick thanks to this one.


Favorite Features

Comforable seats. Ride is great. Trunk is huge. Silent like a tomb. Dash is easy to see and read. Great sounding radio. Features seem unlimited. Rear passenagers like the room. All the heating and air controls for each person. Can you tell I like it. I also like the small add on visors.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the supercharger and reduce the HP to equal the other Buicks and give me the 30mpg they get. What good is a valet key if they can open the trunk from inside anyways. Glove box to small for anything.

Review

I just wanted to say that GM Corp screwed up when they stopped producing this beautiful road car! There is no car in my opinion that compares with this ride and stability that the Park offers. I have driven the new Lucerne and was in fact, disappointed! Wake up GM. Don't force me to purchase a "foreign car"


Favorite Features

Mostly the comfort that the Buick offers and the leg room in the back seat. I just plain loved the whole car.


Suggested Improvements

Bring back the Park Avenue and get rid of the Caddies

Review

Bought new and have been happy with this model from the gitgo! Acceleration, even today with 147,800 miles on 'er is truly amazing. Still get 30-31 mpg on hwy and 22 city at resonable speeds. Can burn all grades of fuel even though they specify premium for supercharge. If they wre still made, we'd buy another even at the higher price of gas. If comfort is your desire this ride can't be beat either coss country (12 to 20 hrs. At a stretch) or stop and go city snarls. Style is still as good today as it was when first introduced. Too good to believe, ya, that's right, it is.


Suggested Improvements

Would've prefered an engine with as much git-up-and-go but regular gas.

Review

I commute 47 miles to work one way and have previously have had small or intermediated size autos. The PA gives me consitently 32 MPG on the highway and 28 overall mpg. The ride is fantastic and overall performance exceptional. If your looking to purchase a quality automobile look no further than a used Park Ave.


Favorite Features

Comfort, display features, sound system performance
