"I bought my old reliable '95 Park Avenue for $4500 10 years ago and couldn't be any happier owning this luxury automobile without a car payment. It has lots of pep left in it, first drove car the odometer had originally 52K miles now drove at 235K giving excellent scheduled routine maintenance and tire rotation every 5000 miles. The interior is good, although looks old fashion still has the most comfortable seats ever includes bucket leather seats and dual climate controlling system. The Buick is very superb, smooth ride and lots of strong power with the 3800 V6 engine its quiet taking her at high speeds. Styling looks good, there isn't any rust spot anywhere on car usually polish and wax every two weeks keeping the surface shining. I'm sorry these cars are no longer made anymore if so I would buy it again expensive or not. I trust Buick definitely recommend buying an vehicle as Buick and this model for with best reliability history."

"An excellent engine is down 1-2 quarts at oil change. A comfortable riding car. Nees body work front left fender damaged and chrome piece on driver's side door is gone. Right fender has small stress crack. Has new motor mounts, alternator, plugs and wires. Would be a good work or backup vehicle. Always starts. I suspect there is a vacuume leak as the doors on the A/C sometimes goes to default. Very reliable vehicle."

"I have a 1993 Buick Park Avenue, it has 270,000 miles, I have owned this car since April 2012. I got it with 258,000 miles, and have done very little repairs, I have drove this car from North Carolina to New Windsor, New York, and back. No problems, I have took it to Boone NC which is around 2 and a half hours from here, at least a dozen times. It has NEVER let me down, only time was when the battery went out, but that is ANY car. This is my first car, and I will maintain and drive it for as long as it will go, then turn around a buy another. GM 3.8L is pretty much bullet proof, you cannot go wrong for the money, the power is amazing for such a large ride on the highway. I could write all day, long story short. This car is the real deal, I in fact have a great friend, whom has the 93' and uses it for a mail car, it has 435,000 miles on it and still going. Way to go GM, just wish you still made this engine."

"I have owned this 1994 Park Avenue for over nine years and 230,000 miles that have only cost me 2700 doillars in repairs and maint to include tires, brakes, A.C. work and a intake gasket. This car still gets 30+ miles on highway and 25-27 mpg in town, I also had a 91 that had 292,000 miles before teenager son wrecked. Most reliable,cost effective and great ride ever made especially 1991-1996 models."
