Power, luxury, refinement
These are three words that I would use to describe the 2001 Buick Park Avenue. Combining engineering excellence and a classic interpretation of style, the Park Avenue is truly one of America’s greatest automobiles.
I regret selling this car!!!
I bought a used 2001 Buick Park Avenue base with 14K miles on it. Drove like a dream, comfy like a leather living room sofa. My friends teased me about driving a "grandma" car but I didn't care. Plenty of them fell asleep in it, it was so relaxing. Well this car lasted a good long while. At 175K the engine was still purring along, but other parts started to wear out. Got to the point where it was more expensive to replace the parts than it was worth. I thought it made sense to sell it instead of spending more money on replacing parts. It was still running perfectly. I drove the Park Avenue for 18 years and was so attached to it. I bought a nice 2020 Subaru Forester with all the safety features, but man, I sorely missed my Park Avenue! I felt like crying every time I saw one on the road. I would have kept it if I could, but only had a 1 car garage. As soon as I can, I'm going to buy another of these beauties, and hope I have a place to keep it. The Subaru is a great car, but doesn't begin to compare to the luxury and cachet of this big sedan. The V6 motor was perfect because it got good gas mileage for a car its size and plenty of power.
Comfort, comfort, comfort
Like driving on air. Great ride, big interior, could use a v8, but does just fine with a v6. Very spacious interior seats six. Love thiscar.
