A great car to drive and ride in for long or short trips

Read the pros and cons, they say it all. In summary: comfort, rideability, seating and leg room, fuel economy, standard "option"features-nearly everything you can imagine in 2003 is standard on this vehicle. You will have missed a classic car if you ahve never driven or ridden in one.

A classic full size GM highway cruiser that does everything well.

At 155,000 miles the Park has required 1) a battery, 2) a front wheel bearing, 3) brakes, 4) tires, 5) exhaust & 6) serpentine belt. We often drive 3.5 hours to the cabin and are not tired out when we get there - very comfortable car. Excellent factory stereo system for its year. Plenty of power for highway passing. Incidentally, I've owned a Park Ultra (with the 3800 & supercharger). Also a very nice car. Mileage is about 3 to 4 mpg less than the normal 3800, but it does give you an extra kick! Ultras also have a firmer suspension than the standard Park Avenue, and handle a little better. Find a well cared for Park and you will be very happy with it!
