1996 Buick Park Avenue Reviews

I got this car in 2011. I have had to put on struts and tune up. runs great. Tons of power. A/c does not blow as hard as like but gets cold. Great school car or cheap car
Bought the car about 3 months ago, runs very quiet and strong. Love the air ride only problem was bad compressor, found re-manufactured one online for cheap (e-bay motors) and the Fuel Pump gauge not reading accurately. Overall a good car with a great engine.
we bought a park ave with 128,000 miles and this car is a "special luxury to have. The ride is very smooth, the engine is a work horse.
