"This Buick Park Avenue was the best car I ever owned, and I am now 79 years old, had my first car at age 20. This car has features that I don't even find in my current 2014 Toyota Camry. The only thing I would have liked in the car which it didn't have was a GPS. Otherwise I believe it outshines any of the cars I've seen today. Not only that, but almost every time I had a passenger in my car they always commented on how comfortable it was. You could hardly feel any bumps on the road...very smooth...not like the Toyota. I hate to see her go, but she is getting old now. I'm getting used to the Toyota, which is nice, but it's what I can afford now."
"I was looking for a second "go to work" car and my budget was less than $5000. At that price range I knew I was looking at cars with some miles so I wanted a Honda or Toyota because of their good reputation for longevity. After weeks of searching through small dealerships and private sellers I realized both Toyota and Honda were beyond my price range, unless the vehicle had 200,000 miles on it!
A friend who used to be a mechanic told me about Buick's 3.8 ltr V6 engine and it's robustness. I bought a 97 Park Avenue with 90000 miles for $3400. For the last 3 years,I thank my friend all the time because this car has been nothing but wonderful! The supercharged engine propels the big car like a torpedo and the transmission continues to shift flawlessly. It's a nice smooth ride that gets pretty good gas mileage for such a big car. I've had just normal wear and tear maintenance and I have little doubt this car will make it to 200,000 miles and beyond! Even my wife prefers to drive the Buick over our brand new mini cooper! If you need a solid, reliable car on a tight budget consider Buick."
