My Buick park avenue is a very classic auto. It is comfort level is second to none. It is a car that is perfect for long road trips. The sound system is of such high quality that you would think that you are in the opera house. The leg room the cushy seats are all part of the wonderful interior. Then you get to the beautiful outside. Well done! Beautiful!

Our 2003 Buick park avenue is a great car. We bought in august, 2017, and it only had 82, 000 miles on it and was in excellent shape. It has leather interior and looks brand new on the inside. It rides really smooth and you can barely hear it running. It is really a great car. It should last us for a while longer as low mileage and good shape its in.

It is a nice roomy car that is comfortable. We feel safe in it, and it is reliable. It is an older model, so it is having some problems. But for the most part it is been a good car that we are thankful to have. Another feature that we like is the front heated seats. The trunk is very nice and spacious for groceries.
