2001 Buick Park Avenue Sedan Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

From the gorgeous, classy, yet timeless exterior of my silver park avenue ultra, to its sumptuous leather interior, Buick has put an eye to details in this car. Doesnt simply have memory seats. Its has memory seats, mirrors, radio, and climate control that is link to your individual key fob. The supercharged 3800 model 6 cylinder gasoline engine is known to be one of GM's best small engines, and mine happens to be supercharged. Effortless acceleration and highway passing power sum up this engine, and reliability is excellent as long as you maintain it. SEATS AREA SIMPLY AMAZING. My only complaint is possibly more thigh support, but i have very very long legs. Sound system is 2nd to none.


Best Features

Seats, Engine power AND fuel economy, sound system, overall classy good looks that wont go out of style in 3 yrs like bmws, mercs, lexus', etc. Cavernous trunk. absolutely HUGE car so very safe, yet easy to park.


Worst Features

thigh support on seats.

2001 Buick Park Avenue Sedan Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

Overall I've been happy with this car. I put on a lot of miles and averaged about 21mpg which is impressive for a car this size. The supercharged engine really boogies, and it has every option you can ask for. But it is not attractive. As my kids say: it's a "grampa car". I did have problems with the rear struts and rotors, but that might have been caused by Brooklyn roads.


Best Features

Supercharged engine, 10 cd changer, heated seats. The heater works really fast in the winter. Comfort of ride


Worst Features

Overall appearance. Some rear floatiness.

2001 Buick Park Avenue Sedan Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I've owned over 40 cars, and this Buick ranks near the top. I purchased it 6 months ago when it only had 20K miles. I now have 42K miles on the car. I still can't believe I get between 35 - 40 mpg on the highway. A few minor issues with dash squeaks/rattles.


Best Features

Comfort and mileage. The 3800 engine is one of GM's best in recent years.


Worst Features

Climate control. This is the second GM vehicle of recent years I've had with automatic climate control, and both have had problems.

2001 Buick Park Avenue Sedan Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

General Quality: Very Good to Excellent. 44K Miles on odometer when purchased. Minor problems with: power seats, CD changer (nio instructions), brake lights (fuse), and transmission (some slippage when started & humidity is 90+%). Nice ride. Good fuel economy. Comfortable interior. Great room for a passenger car. A big factor in buying this car was the big depreciation: originally a $40K car I picked it up for $16K. Compared to Nissan Max, a $34K car (2001) sells for $17K, this is a bargain.


Best Features

Heated seats, daytime running lights, Supercharger has a great kick-this car moves when you hit the gas.


Worst Features

Seat motors need to be more reliable. Ditto with sun roof motor.

Review

I like the car for its ride and plenty of inside and trunk room. I think the seats need more attention, although there are plenty of adjustments. I have owned two Buick Ultras and have had transmission problems with both. The warenty took care of it but GM needs to put more quality into their parts. I have compared them all and I have found that dollar for dollar, I can't beat the value of the Buick. I should also mention, that the Buick that I now have has all of the bells and whistles available and I love them all.


Worst Features

Seat comfor and quality control. I have less than 20K and they had to replace the brake rotors because of pitting.
