"Bought this car from my parents last year and I cannot believe how amazing the vehicle is. With almost 220,000 miles and a bad transmission, this baby is still a champion!!"

"The brakes were just replaced for the first time at 140,000. Had to replace a plenum at 110,000, alternator twice. That's it for work. Just did a trip from Vermont to NYC to WashingtonDC, to Niagara Falls and had 32.8 mpg for the trip. It's been an excellent car and I will keep it."

"Have had very little expense, the motor is tip-top, tiny bit of rust below one door and scrape on one side of rear bumper, never smoked in, garaged, and lovingly cared for."

"I bought this car used. I am the second owner. I was shocked at the depreciation of this car, though, from what the sticker price was new, and what I paid for it when it was 6 years old! It was a no-brainer for me! This car is loaded. I was surprised at the gas mileage I got, too - 25 MPG in town, and 32-33 MPG Hwy. It rides beautifully, and is a very sharp-looking car. I have put 100,000 miles on it, and had just the minimal, expected maintenance on it. Wheel Bearings, Tie rods, a rebuilt Jasper transmission at about 110,00 miles which cost me $1750. If the chassis hadn't rusted out, I'd keep it. I am fixing the body up to sell it. I found another used, low-mileage car. This Park Avenue is extremely comfortable to drive and ride in. Handles brilliantly in the snow. I'm really going to miss it!"
