So my wife and I headed to the local Buick dealer to see about getting a newer (2001) Century or (2003) Impala. While there the saleperson stated that he had a perfect condition 1996 Park Avenue traded in from an "older" customer. I said I didn't want it, but my wife insisted that we look at it. As it turns out, it not only drove like new, it has less wear and tear than my HHR. It didn't make sense not to buy it.
Check out the pictures of the carpet. It almost looks new! You can see the picks at http://www.flickr.com/photos/dsuupr/...7600045197581/
The Park Avenue has the SE pkg, velour interior and base Dynaride suspension.
It has 78,600 miles, and all records included. The previous owner seemed to replace things WAY before needing them. The water pump has been replaced twice because "a noise" was heard. :P
Now I'm pimpin it.
