1988 Buick Park Avenue 3.6 from North America
ALWAYS dependable and economical
Door gaskets going bad resulting in road noise.
Front suspension weak - needs to be replaced.
Power window motor failed - driver's door.
Power door lock motor failed - driver's door.
The car has been a winner from day one. It is pleasant to drive, comfortable for long trips. Gas mileage around town averages 16 mpg; however, on the road, with AC and 75 mph, average gas mileage is 34 mpg. The engine is strong and reliable. Regular maintenance primarily only costs. Always has power when needed - such as when accelerating onto the freeway. We've driven it in all kinds of road conditions - from the heat of the desert (where we live) to cold, icy and snowy - it always performs well and with good traction.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
