Great Comfort, Great Mileage. Several little things are worn out like the door catches, the power seats only partly adjust and the wheels leak air due to corrosion around the beads. I wish I had it when it was new.

Most reliable car I have ever had

by from Richmond, Va. on July 4, 2017

This car is very reliable and a exceptionally smooth ride. The exterior and interior are still in excellent condition.

best car I ever owned. 79 years old

by from Baltimore, md on June 24, 2017

I love it. I told my wife i will drive it til I die. The only reason se doesn't like it is that the mirror satilite connection doesn't work. AND, it holds `both of my garbage cans

In 2004 I bought a 2002 model in the Netherlands and drove it for 9 years. Than I gave it away to a friend for free, after importing in 2013 a 2005 model (the LTD version, 10.000 dollars) into the Netherlands. Needless to say I am completly in love with this last great sedans the USA produced (I think it was). Really wonderfull.

Own 2. 1998 was my Dad's. Bought it when he stopped driving several years ago @ 75,000 mi. 1999 purchased 3 years ago for $1600 with 120K mi. Have done only minor maintenance/tires/battery, and recently a set of front struts. 98 has 145K on it. 99 has 169K miles, both engines running strong. I'm guessing they'll both run 200-250,000 mi (21-29 mpg and no car payments! That's true economy!) All that in a truly comfortable passenger cabin with excellent air conditioning.

Have bought and owned 8 Park Avenue. Put out a search for a 2002 or 2003, under 100,000 miles, red and chrome wheels. Put out a 500 mile search found one at 481 miles, exacely what I was looking for. 80,000 miles, new tires, looks and rides like a new car.

I bought my 97 Park Avenue used in 2001 with 71000 miles. Now it has 135000, but I love this car and would buy another one just like that only newer. BTW, I am only 30, so ditch the "grandpa's car" reputation! Get great mileage of 20-22 in city and 27-29 highway (best on my memory was 31.8 mpg highway-only driving for 6 hours @ 75-80 mph with tail wind). Regular 3.8L provides plenty of power and still runs quietly. Repairs/problems: 1.Blew head gasket and got coolant in cylinders once ($800). 2.Transmission solenoid got stuck and would shift jerkily ($500). 3.Chrome wheels need replacement (some corrossion around stem valves letting air out over week's time) - price TBD. 4.Just today windshield wipers ceased to work (looks like a slipped gear). Still, with all the comforts and great looks I highly value this model.
