Used 2003 Buick Park Avenue Review

Edmunds expert review

When shopping for an extra-large, luxury-laden sedan with domestic heritage, it's hard to go wrong with the shapely Park Avenue.

What's new for 2003

A revamped Park Avenue Ultra, chock-full of aesthetic goodies, emerges for 2003. This Ultra model features a new grille, side mirror-mounted turn indicators, 17-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels and retro-style fender portholes. The three holes on each front fender are meant to link the updated 2003 model to Buick's 40-plus years of design heritage. The Ultra also boasts an improved ride, largely due to the specially-tuned Gran Touring suspension and rear stabilizer bar, both of which are standard Ultra equipment. Inside, faux wood grain trim and a new gauge cluster graphics help define the Ultra's fresh look.
