Review of the 2002 Buick Park Avenue

  • When shopping for an extra-large, luxury-laden sedan, it's hard to go wrong with the shapely Park Avenue. Overlook the cost-cutting inside, and you'll be quite pleased with your purchase, if a smooth-riding American land yacht is your sort of car. We'd definitely choose this over, say, a Lincoln Town Car.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Big and comfy interior, strong V6 engine, attractive design, good value.

  • Cons

    Sometimes flimsy assembly quality, floaty ride, dizzying array of gizmos.

    Buick's top-of-the-line luxury sedan remains virtually unchanged for 2002. Minor updates include wood grain trim on the doors and…

What a steal!

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Got this as salvage after the driver hit a deer...all fixed up....for only $2200. Drove it 750 miles to Miami in comfort at 31 mpg. Heated seats are toasty! The only thing I would "improve" would be the inside driver's handle so that it is a bit more intuitive/natural. Otherwise, this car is just about the best combination of cost and comfort that I have ever seen. And at 6'4", it fits!

My best car

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Buick Park Avenue Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Don't believe the review that says this drives like a BMW. It doesn't. I had a 1984 BMW M6. Fantastic, but totally impractical. I bought the Buick as my winter car with 95,000 miles on it when 3 years old - my 3rd Park Avenue. I still own the Park Av, but not the BMW. If you want a car to zip along an autobahn buy a BMW, if you want a car to drive on the typical lousy roads that you get in New England, buy the Buick. The one I bought had all the toys, rear parking, touring package, heads-up display. It's a really great car. Don't believe the mileage - I get 18 "city" and 27-30 mpg, depending on how hard I drive, on the interstate.

Best car out of 18

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

The quality, smooth ride and handling, power of the Buick Park Avenue is outstanding and exceptional. I have owned a LeSabre and a Century, but this leather recliner on wheels out performs all cars I have had and is like a little piece of heaven :) Too bad Buick does not manufacture anymore :( 10 out of 10 in my book.




Great car

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Park Avenue 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Car has all the goodies and has exceeded expectations. Purchased with 25,000 miles and have added 17,000 in a year. Gave up my 2000 Impala for it. Can't believe I got so much for what I paid. Great car for a tall man. My car has the road package which I love. Great ride. Can't believe someone would pay premium for a different name plate. Replaced front brakes at 42,000. Back-up sensors are great for the parking lots.

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Park Avenue Ultra 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

This is our 3rd Park Avenue. It has a better ride than Cadillac and Lincoln.
