Unbelievable Value by Bluey Buey on 12/02/2008. Trim: 2001 Buick Park Avenue Base, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The quality of these cars is unbeatable. It is my second Park Avenue. I bought another one because I really like the styling... they're relatively unique, which is much better than can be said about so many other cars on the road... they all look alike! The Park Ave has a lot of great features, such as Head-up Display, Sunroof, Heat Seats, Parktronic Parking Assist, Parallel Parking Assist, Dual Zone Climate, and the best feature of it all... the 3800 Series II!
Cons: I bought it used from a Honda dealer about 1 month ago, and right when I drove it off the lot, I noticed the rear self-levelling suspension was leaking air. (I did not notice it when I test drove the car). I pulled the fuse for the levelling suspension, because I don't transport a lot of people, so it's level most of the time. Also, I have heard that air shocks can be expensive to replace.
Overall review: I am the kind of person who does not need a BMW or Mercedes to show the world that I have accomplished something. I am comfortable enough with my own accomplishments that I don't feel ashamed to drive something like a 7 year old Buick, especially when it has most of the features of a Bimmer or Benz! These cars are great. My previous Park Avenue was a 2000 Ultra. It went to nearly 300000kilometers, and I traded it in, and still got $4000 for it. I was completely satisfied. I miss the supercharger, but I don't miss having to put premium gas into the car. The gas mileage is great with both the Ultra and the normal Park Avenue. I wouldn't hesitate to reccommend the car to anyone. In fact, my best friend told me today, that he just bought a 1998 Ultra. I know he won't be dissappointed. I have had 4 Buicks in the past 15 or so years, never spent a dime on anything other than ordinary maintenance.
