1985 Buick Electra Park Avenue Sedan Review
Classic styling with comfortable ride make this a great choice for those seeking an american sedan without the disadvantages of a v-8 rwd vehicle.
Rear air-assist suspension is prone to failure, any of these cars still around today sag in the rear...
Big Lazy Boat For People Who Value Comfort Above All Else. — This is a very traditional American sedan. It is a big, slow, sloppy handling living room on wheels. Torquey but slow revving 3.8 v6 is never in a hurry to move this boat, and automatic transmission shift points are odd, but maybe worn out vacuum modulator is to blame. For the age, this car has held up very well. the plush carpet and velour pillow top seats are in like new condition. Highway driving is where this car excels, the v6 has plenty of torque to go up hills without breaking a sweat. Soft suspension coupled with tires that have large sidewalls ensure that any bumps are absorbed. Only returns 23 mpg highway, not impressive by today's standards for a v-6.

A truly gorgeous fullsize convertible, as long as you don't drive too fast. Possibly the best year when it comes to vintage Electras. Extremly attractive design. Read More
