"I have had Buick Park Avenue for 10 years and I am totally satisfied with it. It has been reliable and I've had no major repairs on any of them. The ride is very comfortable. The body looks like new even after 5 years. The only negative is that they are no longer selling the Buick Park Avenue"
"I purchased this car my senior year of high school, I purchased it with 140000 some miles for 2200 because the person selling it was nice and came down 800 for me. He used it as a winter vehicle only because he drove a convertible in the summer. In the first summer i owned the car, i took me and many friends on 6 road trips, racking up 2,000 miles road trips alone, and maybe 700 daily driving. That is a heavy toll on a car for just a month and a half. It took it like a champ, i could leave it sitting and run it maybe twice a month during school, and slam the car into constant use in the summer and the thing just wouldn't die. The only thing i ever replaced were window motors and the tires. The breaks and rear shocks needed replaced eventually too, but as for the 3800 series 2 l36(non supercharged) i consider it peerless. In no car can you feel like your driving a v8 northstar, get the gas milage of 30 highway 20 city, and have a reliable ride like this car. Believe me at first as a young kid i was not thrilled by this car, it isn't too fast and my manager at work started calling me 18 going on 80. but this thing is still running. I have no need to purchase a new car because now that i am an adult, this car still looks mature and clean. looking at it you would not know the miles. If you are looking to get your kid a good car for college, this is it. if you are a high schooler like i was purchasing your own car, buy this. it isn't exciting or that fast, but with 5 other friends stuffed in the car and a drive to the lakes or cedar point, this car will quickly become a good memory."
