I Love This Car. — Its a very reliable car. I had to do a few repairs on it, such as replacing a crankshaft posistion sensor and a camshaft posistion sensor. Also had to do the usual maintenance, such as brakes, fuel filter, oil fiter, etc. It has excellent acceleration due to the supercharger in it, it handles amazing for the size of it. You do have to give yourself a little more braking room since it is a little heavy. The apperance of the car is decent, it does have an ordinary paint job (grey). The seats and sunroof kind of make up for it though. It has pretty bad gas mileage if you dont know how to drive it correctly. If you step on it the supercharger likes to help the engine drink the gas. Its a VERY comfortable car to drive, leather seats, smooth shocks all contribute to the fun factor of the car. Basicly it is a very fun car to drive.

A Fine Blend Of Past And Present — This 1995 Buick Park Avenue has been in my possession for almost 13 years now and we've covered nearly 84,000 miles together. I can't even begin to emphasize how much I cherish the Buick's dependability. Except on two occasions when the battery died, the car would ALWAYS start up and run fine under any condition. Nothing has changed in that respect, the Buick is as solid as a rock. One of the reason for that is the venerable 231 CID V6 under the hood, an engine whose origin dates back to 1962 and that has been constantly refined since then. It's really a shame GM stopped making that old pushrod V6 in 2009 merely because it didn't meet the latest emissions standards. My '95 is the base sedan with the naturally aspirated engine that produces 205 horsepower, plenty enough for a car that size and weight. 0-60 arrives in approx. 8 seconds, top speed is a true 128 mph (verified with a GPS sensor on the German Autobahn). Thanks to the Buick's auxiliary engine and transmission oil coolers (it's an export model), it won't overheat on sustained high-speed runs like all American engines without them. The four-speed automatic transaxle continues to shift smoothly all day long even after 13 years of everyday use. All it took was an oil change every few years, nothing more. The Park Avenue is a front-wheel-drive automobile and it shows. It's front-heavy and understeers markedly, even with the (unjustly) famed Gran Touring Suspension. In my experience, this heavy-duty suspension only makes the car ride more harshly but doesn't really help cornering. No, the Park Avenue is a cruiser, not a racer, and should be driven accordingly. If you want a sports sedan, get a BMW. The interior appointments are splendid and leave nothing to be desired. The car has literally every option in the book (most of them standard equipment, anyway) and they all work fine - except the traction control system which ceased to function years ago but isn't missed, and the heating system for the driver's seat, which I never used, anyway. The Park Avenue is a marvel of efficient space utilization, quite unlike the many older American cars that I've owned and/or driven. At 205 inches in length, the Buick is not a small car, but a whole lot shorter and narrower than its rear-wheel-drive predecessors from the Sixties and Seventies, yet it offers more space inside than they ever did. Even when the driver's seat is all the way back, like in my case, the passenger riding behind me still enjoys plenty of legroom, not to mention all the comfort and convenience of a cushy living room on wheels. Every person who has ever sat in the Park Avenue has commented very favorably on its outstanding comfort. My Park Avenue has been with me for a long time and I'll take good care of it so it may continue to provide faithful service for many more years to come.

Pros

The car has great acceleartion (Supercharged Ultra 4 dr sedan) for a car its size, beats my E Class Benz off the line and pulls low 7's in 0-60 mph.  The seats are comfortable, and it has a lot of elbow room with 4 passengers and with 6 it's still not bad.  The ride is fine and handling is good (I have the Gran Touring Suspension with the optional 16" wheels with Goodyear Eagle GT's mounted) for a car its size.  It is the perfect car for long trips as it carries passengers comfortably and has an enormous trunk with 20.2 CU FT trunk space.  With the traction control it even has respectable handling in the snow, steering and acceleration/traction, though the back end tries to sneak past the front when stopping because the rear end is so light.

Cons

I wish they had put larger brakes on the car, and disc brakes on the back would be nice.  When it works, the 2 zone climate control is great but I've had to replace the A/C compressor as well as the control/head module.  Gas mileage is about the same as my E Class Benz but when you stomp on the gas pedal frequently, the supercharger LOVES to drink gas and empty your tank.

Buick Park Avenue Ultra: Fine Cruiser. — I bought this car when my left leg couldn't operate a clutch to drive into the city as a daily commuter. The ride is fantastic, the acceleration is great, and I enjoy the handling with the optional 16" tires and the Gran Touring Suspension. The seats are very comfortable although I miss my Mercedes seats for their lower back support that the Buick lacks. I really like the 20.2 CU FT of trunk space though I wish it had a full sized spare like the Roadmaster. It has a lot of little buttons and lights but once you get to know them, and know how to set up all the "automatic features," the car is great to operate. Since I tend to speed a bit, I also like the fact that although the car IS very fast, it looks like a "Grandma car." The stereo has good sound but I wish is had a CD player; it is a 1995 so I can't complain. Overall, I enjoy this car far more than I had thought I would. On weekends I thought I'd always be in my Benz, but I find myself driving my commuter car on weekends more and more for its own merits.

loose suspention provides makes for loose cornering

Buick Park Avenue — Alot of gizmos and gadgets for it's time. Electric everything: seats, mirrors, trunk, antenna...etc. Car has a big 3.8 liter V6. though there is alot of power there is quite a bit of lag. 0-60 maybe 7.5 sec. "Dyna-ride" giving the car really crappy handling because suspension is soooo loose. AWESOME GRANDMA CAR!
