Excellent car by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/13/2010. Trim: 1996 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Much faster than it looks, supercharged engine feels more like a V8, motor runs like new after 182k, very comfortable interior, has tons of room, HUGE trunk, great radio. It feels like a 4x4 in the snow with the Traction Control on, and corners great for a car its size. Most people think Buicks are for old people, but I'm 18 and I love just about everything about it.
Cons: Kind of hard to park because of its size. The turning radius might seem a little big for someone used to smaller cars. Some of the accessories are starting to fail, but nothing important. Could have bigger side-view mirrors.
Overall review: A very well put together car. The best V6 ever put in an automobile. I've seen many of these cars bombed to oblivion and the motors still run fine. The seats are absolutely perfect. After having gone up countless dirt roads mine is starting to wear out at 182k, but a lower mileage/better taken care of example would last the right person for many more years. It has an excellent combination of power, comfort, reliability, and dirt road/snow ability. I recommend this car to anybody.

roomy highway cruiser with all the toys. by A CarPoint Consumer on 03/07/2001. Trim: 1996 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, Owned 3 years.
Pros: large trunk, instrument panel layout good. I have supercharged model with the touring suspension - gives an excellent highway ride with a very positive feel.
Cons: I had to replace the rack and pinion at 97000 miles - not a normal maintenance problem.
Overall review: very good car if you like a compromise between performance and comfort. the large trunk holds baggage for 4 and a set of golf clubs (essential). when ready i will buy a newer one just like it.

luxery ride by stan Maine on 03/01/2001. Trim: 1996 Buick Park Avenue Base, Owned 3 years.
Pros: so far trouble free
Cons: engine trouble light comes on at times ie; overfilling gas tank causes it sometimes dealer says there is a slight slippage in transmission nothing to worry about they say but still it annoys me 100,000 miles to date and still purrs like a kitten
Overall review: very good
