the way i see it with all that new stuff, the current owner has taken care of it. as for riv vs park ave, i have driven them both, along with regals centuries and some lesabres, and for my purposes it was the best of the buicks. tight handling suspension like the riv, with the comfort of the regal/century and has way more options for the money than any of the others. along with the fact that being under 21 the insurance on a 3800 2 door would have been the same as a v6 camaro. its really all about personal preference and what you will be using the car for. not too many cars can fit 2 road bikes, 2 duffle bags 2 full size suitcases and still have the room for a 32" flat screen still in the box all in the trunk so i can let the dogs walk around in the empty cabin on the 9 hour drive back to memphis lol.
i will be honest and say i prefer the styling of the riv over the park ave ten fold, but the way i see it ive got the best of all worlds. handling, power, comfort, and a ton of options.
6000k headlights, LED license plate fog lights, tinted taillights and to top it all off, 2 12" air horns!
