1985 Pontiac Parisienne Review
Everything! I like everything. The best way to describe driving this car is like a well orchestrated symphony. Everything flows so well, the ride. The over-boosted power steering, the smooth acceleration of the Quadrajet carburetor. Power is also there when you need it, open up the secondaries on the 4-bbl and the car will move
Flaws? Well, it is rather under-optioned. Being a base model with only A/C and Rear-Defrost. That means no 6-way power seats, power antenna, power mirrors, power locks, opera lamps, pillowed seats, radial tuned suspension, or vinyl top (Which were all available options on the Parisienne). So that is my only complaint.
Best $500 I've Spent For A Car. — ! Now has Side pipe & Glasspack. ! An excellent car, so far. There's roughly 220K on the odometer and it runs like new. There's only one or two small rust spots on the body. Minimal dents and dings as well. Build quality is there. Everything works as it should (Except the A/C needs a recharge). The doors close with a satisfying & solid *thud*. Nothing's been needed yet, but parts should be easy to obtain, as it is the same car as the Chevrolet Caprice. Gas milage is reasonable for a V8 powered automobile. I drove around for about 4 hours and only used a tad under a ¼ of the tank. I enjoy the looks of this car, overall design is appealing to the eye. Fender skirts on the rear add to the classy looks, while improving aerodynamics of the car. The interior is comfortable and spacious, a center armrest for driver & passenger can fold up to seat the cars maximum number of 6 people. Dashboard and steering wheel are accented with wood grain - A nice touch. The steering wheel itself is good looking and comfortable to grip .
Primary Use: Family transportation
1985 Pontiac Parisienne Review
its a classic looks good and smooth
only reason to avoid is if you dont like big bodies and gas milage
Its Amazing — This car is amazing down from the classic big body style to the 305 v8 big boy that makes this baby float, It looks great, drives great, feels great only thing that I have a problem with is the 11 miles to the gallon that I get. Since it takes about $60 to fill the tank and I can only go about 230 miles on 24 gallons of gas........
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
