Pros

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.

Cons

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.

The Last Of The Rwd Line: 1984 Buick Electra Park Avenue By GuyNewport

The pros and cons pretty much sum it up. It's a good older car that gets about the same MPG as a modern pick-up and is much nicer to drive on long trips with the added panache of the ancient body styl... Read More

It's A Good Demo Derby Car, That's About It By Kenneth

Huge car + 307 Olds engine = poor acceleration. Took effort to churn tires on tar. The tie rod on my specific car was far out of alignment, so it handled like crap, pulled to the right hard. Brakes w... Read More
