Few changes were in store for the 2003 Buick Park Avenue Base, a luxury sedan with quiet comfort and easy handling that delivers plenty of convenience features. Under the hood sits a 3.8-liter, 205-hp V6 engine and a 4-speed automatic, that gets about 20/30 mpg. The front-wheel drive sedan seats five comfortably and comes standard with ABS brakes, dual front and side airbags, automatic headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, and daytime running lights.
For comfort, the 2003 Park Avenue Base comes with leather seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, remote entry, power front seats with driver's memory settings, an alarm, leather trim, and wheel-mounted audio controls. The seats do not fold down, but the trunk offers an unbelievable 19 cubic feet of space. Options include the Gran Touring package, with a beefed up suspension, a sunroof, heated seats and mirrors, a CD player, OnStar, and auto-dimming rearview mirrors. Safety options include stability and traction control, parking sensors, and rain-sensing wipers. Owners love the roominess and quiet ride. There are few complaints about the well-equipped 2003 Buick Park Avenue Base.
