I have owned this car for only 16months but bought at 123,000 miles and let me tell you I about live in this car. Last month I purchased a Pacifica and hated the ride of that thing not to mention the lousy gas mileage...fortunately I still had my old Ultra and am now back to driving it. This car starts every time and although it's older I can say I will continue to make repairs as needed in order to keep this car. I have owned quite a few automobiles in my life and this one beats them all!!!
Love the seats, heated and just like sitting in a favorite chair at home. The controls on the steering are a plus also. There are just too many plusses to mention but if you own one you know just exactly where I'm coming from..It's heaven to drive.
I've always heard you can't improve on perfection and this is truly an example of perfection.
The reliability of this vehicle is outstanding. In 5 years of driving not one component of the vehicle has failed. I have only had to change the battery, and replace the tires. I am amazed at the reliability, and performance of the vehicle.
Special color of White. Supercharged engine.
Trunk spring and mechanism not as good as some much less expensive cars. Back seat should be able to come down extending the space in trunk.
This is my fifth Buick, plus I have
owned 4 Mercedes. This Park Ave Ultra
has fast acceleration, due to the high
torque from supercharger. It is very
quiet, with very low wind and engine
noise. It is very stable at freeway
speeds, but the shocks are weak over
large undulations- the only and major
weak point in the car. It grows on you!
Great acceleration, brakes quite good
for off-ramps, etc. Very stable in
high winds. More comfortable the
longer the trip- many seat adjustments,
plus heads-up display. Owner
programmable features. Great fuel
economy, 26.5mpg at 75-80mph. Controls
easy to use.
Major- the weak shocks detract from a
very nice road car, which is a common
complaint; install some Bilsteins!
Minor- Add the rear view mirror to
memory settings. Steering is
programmable, but dealers are clueless
as how to change the settings. A
