Fast Sleeper — Overall I really like my 96 park ave ultra, the supercharged engine is potent, the 4t60e trans in it is geared very well, takes off very quick, and for top end, it finds 100mph right at 2900rpm's would like to chip it to turn the limiter off at the top out speed of aprox 105 mph, there is still plenty of engine left. its not too hard to work on, Ive replaced the trans, the front end, and brakes,. Cons, right now I am attempting to replace a leaking heater core, i have the dash about 50% removed and am still no closer to removing the core than when I started, but other than that, its a dream to ride in, its a sleeper cops don't usually give me a second look, gets about 21 mpg overall, I think its a pretty good old car

Pros: the supercharged 3800 v-6 is a hell of an engine, the car rides nice handling is good considering the size of the car. most maintence is not too bad, i've put a transmission in it, axles, struts, ball joints tie rods and ends, without much difficulty.

Cons: my heater core is bad, and some repairs on this car are difficult,

Buick Review — The Buick Park Avenue is one of the most dependable cars ever, my family has owned many of them and me and my 3 siblings all grew up in one. They are a fairly cheap car to own and definitely do well on the open road. The only problem is that for a teenager, they are not what most people would call cool.

Pros: affordable, dependable

Cons: uncool

1996 Buick Park Avenue Review
says:
Actually, at present I own the Buick and the Ford. Sold the Plymouth a while back & plan to sell the Ford in the near future. Loved driving the Plymouth. The ride, handling and features were all a pleasure. Even held its own in street races! The Ford isn't as smooth a car as the Plymouth, but it has served me well in town and on interstate road-trips. A solid, dependable ride. The Buick has a certain elegance about it. Not snooty or overdone - Everything about it is "tasteful". Nice, clean lines, great handling, very comfortable seats, love the a/c-heat comfort control for each passenger, feels like you're riding on a cloud. Very responsive acceleration.You're flying before you know it.
