Best American Sedan

I have owned the same '92 Park Avenue for 17 years since and it had around 30K miles when purchased. The vehicle now has 192K miles and is still very comfortable and a pleasure to drive. The styling is much better than the todays designs and the seats are much more comfortable. No major problems at all. The few minor ones consisted of one power door lock and one power window, the AC system control board, an alternator, and a coil. Not bad for a 19 year old vehicle with 192,000 miles and those items all have been less than $150 each. The original paint is still great shape even though it's been parked outside most of it's life, but it does get a couple of wax and polish jobs each year. The fuel mileage is 18-20 mpg around town and 30-31 on the road. Why buy a compact econobox when you can have the comfort and space in a "full size" automobile that gets that kind of mileage. I buy another one like this anywhere I could find one. It can't be beat by today's products for the comfort, fuel economy, reliability, and styling.

Fairly good for an Amercian sedan from its time.

This car was bought new for my Mother in 1992. It has been garaged since new. Immediately it had electrical problems with the AC/Heater control panel having been replaced twice in its first two years. Automatic trunk closer was replaced twice in its first 5 years as was the power antenna. The power window switches were replaced once in its first five years. The brakes have been poor but only on the front. They wear very quickly under normal sane city driving. Now at 146K and 18years, I have this car. I have had to disable the security system as it failed and the alarm went off every night. The harmonic balancer failed when my Mother owned it and the dealership made a huge mess of the repair. Now I have it and a reliable mechanic has had to replace most of the engine wiring harness which the dealership had rerouted over the exhaust manifold. Had the dealership done a proper repair job, I have no doubt that this car would have been very reliable right through those years. The only real problems have been the failing electrical accessories and crumbling plastic parts. The paint has not held up well even with being garaged and maintained. Handling since new was hot rod like and the car feels safe and solid. It always has wallowed like a drunk whale, but on the highway it is smooth. It loves its fuel and in town it is a dismal 16mpg. My mother has loved it and thought the seats comfortable. I think they are hard and poorly designed with no support. Overall, it is one of the better large American sedans from the 1990's and if we had to do it all over again, dealership aside, we probably would buy this one again.

1992 Buick Park Avenue

Sitting here in 2010 - this vehicle is STILL one of the best running, best riding vehicles I've ever been in. Great balance of fuel efficiency and power, VERY smooth ride at some expense of handling. New higher end import cars can't beat this vehicle for a plush, quiet, comfortable ride on the highway.
