1986 Pontiac Parisienne Review
A ton of space in the rear. my wife loves it, and it was my high school car
it's a real Boat to Park in a parking lot and when Parallel parking entering and exiting, also when somebody parks to close to your car anytime
My 1989 Pontiac Safari B-body A.k.a. The Honey Wagon — this car has been a great car to me. the acceleration is awesome because its a V8 rear wheel drive. the braking had a few quirks but I managed to fix them myself. the handling is spectacular. It may sometimes slip and slide in the winter but I can always get control of it. the Build Quality is great because its a solid car. it has needed a few repairs because when I first got it it died like times because my charge system was malfunctioning and my lighting panel was broken. so I finally got the car fixed and it purrs like a kitten. it was my high school car and a girl actually happened to like it. the Brakes sometimes let out a squeak when I have to do hard braking but overall it's awesome. the Appearance of the car is MINT condition. No rust, no dents, no scratches, no nothing! The exterior has simulated wood panelling and the colour of the car is, well I have two of them. One is sky blue with wood and the one that is shown is royal blue. All of the headlamps & Tail lamps work perfectly as well as the Amber Lamps/ Hazard Lamps. The interior is also Mint condition. there are no tears on the velvet seats, NO Cracks on the dash surprisingly, the radio operates perfectly, the Automatic Lap Shoulder belts do their Job very well. The Horn Operates when needed and its a dual note horn so it ACTUALLY GETS PEOPLES ATTENTION!! The interior colour is regal blue Velvet 8 passenger seating with third row rear facing seat. The 3 way tailgate is an awesome feature that GM put on their B-body station wagons. ( thanks Ford Motor Company ) I wish they continued the B Body Station wagons and never brought along the minivan thanks to Chrysler. The cost of the ownership is Good and I finally got my Station wagon paid off so it's all mine now and my wifes. The cost of the insurance for the car was $2000/Year and like I said, I finally got it paid off. The gas mileage is approximately 18-20 US gallons which I dunno what it is in canadian units although I am Canadian but I am not here to talk about my Background. Maintenance is easy on a rear wheel drive than a front wheel when it comes to the transmission. I forgot to tell how much the wagon costs. it costs me $1500 for a perfectly good car that runs spectacular and the whitewalls are MINT. The car was rarely driven by this elderly couple because both the man and woman were getting too old to drive so it was rarely driven by the original owners. it was driven so rarely that it only had 90 Kilometres on it. not 900 000, not 90 000, and not 9000 or 900, Just a shocking 90 klix on it. I think my car is Super fun to drive although I got made fun of by people who drove ricers but all I had to do is rev my engine and they were scared to mess with a guy who's car has 8 Cylinders while his Fart-in-a-can mobile is a 4 Banger. Here's a word of advice "don't mess with a car that has more cylinders than yours" people messed with my wagon and they got what deserved, me opening a can of whoop arse on their 4 Banger Tuner. when a Tuner supped up 4 Banger challenged me, Lets just say the tuner was the Tuna and my wagon was the Tuna eater. overall it is a good car to make out in with all the room in the back. also the Bench seat in the front is awesome because my wife can sit in the middle and I can easily put my arm around her comfortably. when I drive it, it's like I am driving a Chesterfield on wheels. For you guys who dunno what a chesterfield is, a Chesterfield is a type of high end Sofa I wouldn't recommend this car to a friend because they might think its ugly but I will recommend the Pontiac Parisienne sedan to a friend. if my friends do end up getting one of these, I AM WARNING YOU NOW. IT'S A REAL BOAT TO PARK
