- Traction, fuel economy, price
- others complain of little nuances
Is it only me or this car looks like the XJ8 Jaguar that costs about 100 grand? When Europeans and Japanese boasted about traction I reminded them Buick had been building effective front wheel drive full size cars for years--with outstanding brakes. The 3800 engine is the only American built engine I've driven that has given me the advertised or more MPG's in real life driving than the EPA sticker indicated. GM provided Jay Leno with a 1,000 Horse Power engine. Maybe they can provide Buick with a 400 horse power and fuel efficient engine (do not repeat, do not try to revive the gas guzzler used in the Olds Aurora which provided only 250HP). In this Buick you can ride in the lap of luxury while appearing ecologically (read fuel) responsible and paying a lot less than one pays for gas guzzling SUV's; not to mention Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar, etc....read morehide

- good fuel economy, comfortable, great traction in snow, great audio reflects Buick's heritage.
- needs to be "broken in" carefully.
Park Avenue has performed in the manner expected. It is an eye catcher and with the supercharged engine it is very responsive and yet very fuel efficent.(29 miles to gallon on highway) Well balanced and correct truly a car for those who want quality and savings. Braking is straight and true along with abs and stability control and traction control handles the road very well....read morehide

- Has comfortable seats, reasonable gas mileage, spacious
- a vibration at speeds over 65 mph even though new tires on and rebalanced
In a heavy rain, the radiator fan sounds like it picks up water from the road and causes the fan to be unbalanced when it is running. This causes a tremendous noise and vibration on the floor of the car! (This is a different vibration) Also have wind noise from the "moon roof" that is especially annoying on the passenger side. The driver's door sticks so bad that it is hard to pull or push open in cold weather. The gaskets get too firm! After a visit with the service manager for our state, we got no satisfaction The car has only about 2600 miles on it and is a big problem! Have owned four Buicks but this one is a "Lemon"!...read morehide

I LOVE THE CAR ALONG WITH THE PERFORMANCE AND THE LUXERY APPOINTMENTS. I HAVE ONLY ONE PROBLEM THAT MY DEALER HAS BEEN UNABLE TO FIX AND THAT IS THE DRIVER IDENTIFICATION ON THE DIC. DRIVER 1 DRIVES THE CAR AND THEN LOCKS IT, DRIVER 2 UNLOCKS IT AND AFTER STARTING THE CAR IT IDENTIFIES DRIVER 1 INSTEAD OF 2...read morehide
