I purchased this car new and have put every mile on it. The engine is still strong, it still has factory compression specs! Have replaced all rotating parts (Alternator water pump, compressor) except power steering on engine once. Not bad for 260000 miles. Great car for road trip, very quiet and comfortable. Had to replace the automatic transmission at 217000.
2 position memory for seats and mirrors. Power moon roof, extra large trunk, interior room.
I moved to the Buick Park Avenue from
Volvo ownership based on the
recommendations of my car dealer. I
buy ucars that have high quality but
are unfairly depreciated. This is a
car that you can buy used for a great
price and expect 250,000 miles.
Bought the car with +70,000 miles and
it is still all original at 197,000
miles. It has been a phenomenally
reliable car. Fit and finish is above
average and the interior remains in
good shape. The power seats provide
excellent support on long road trips.
I was surprised by the gas mileage,
above 26 mpg on the highway.
This car is quiet, well mannered and
easy to maintain. Brake repairs are
the only minus, but
Quality - construction/material
quality is above average.
Appearance - the car has an elegant
Interior - the car has huge space
capacity and will carry 5 adults in
comfort. Trunk is very large.
Gas Mileage - a full size sedan that
gets great mileage (regular fuel to
Buick has since improved the brakes
and gotten rid of the weak rear drum
brakes in newer models. Lose the hood
ornaments and other tacky decoration.
After driving Euuropean cars all my
life before, the Buick was my first
full size car. It is marvellous!
Comfort, reliability, power. The only
problems - with 240k miles, was the
steering system and the A/T cooling
system hose which destroyed itself by
rubbing on the hose mounting :-(
my 91 has 89,000 miles on it, very
comf. and great driving car. Bought the
car a few yrs old. now has 89,000 miles
on it..recently new transmission and
complete new ac and heater..have had a
lot of problems with the brakes..but
overall dont like the new 03 park
because of they only leather interior
and no whitewalls..I am thinking of
keeping the 91 for that reason, other
than that I have been very happy with
great comfort, great gas mileage for
that size of car, paint has held up
well (white).. velour interior held up
very well, other than brakes, its a 9
nothing for the 91 models, just for the
new 03..they need to let us chose cloth
seats and not standard leather(ugh) and
whitewall tires..and stop making the
new ones 2003's look like "standard
police cars" the older models look more
