Highway Cruiser — Build Quality: sound mechanical condition Car Comparisons: looked at a lot of cars before deciding on this one, chose the buick cause it was cheap in excellent shape and had a new engine Performance: its really not made to go fast or take corners at any speed, its just a nice daily driver More About My Car: it looks like the Regal GS Su

High Quality Without Being Over Priced — I have beat the crap out of my car towing trailers and going camping. It's like the energizer bunny. The only maintenance going from 72k miles to 126k miles has been fluids, and front rotors/pads. Of course I added the trailer hitch and stereo.

Surprise!!! — After receiving this car from my Grandpa, I wasn't expecting much but I ended up LOVING this car. It was a very large car, but it drove like a cloud and had just the right amount of power for a first-time driver.

Pros

It was fast for a Buick, with a high powered V6

Cons

It was having  electricical problems when I gave it to my Step Dad

Not For A Teenager — It wasn't a bad car, however it was not a car you would see a teenager in. No really problems, I put a head unit in it and fixed it up a bit. After awhile, maybe about a year and a half I give it again to my Step Dad to take back and forth to work which to this day he uses.

Value Style Luxury Car — This is not a perfect car, but it was designed very well! Its impact resistance and roll-over resistance never cease to impress me! It''s a good looking car of style! I don't regret purchasing it! It's long drive stamina is astounding!

Pros

Smooth, even on very rough roads, loved that !!  Very quiet, too.  Economical and powerful.  Nice, big, easy controls inside and easy to read dash for 50 year old eyes.

Cons

Door wouldn't stay open, flopped back on leg easily, seats were too cushy sofa soft, but I sat on a formed support pad and then fine.  Maybe a few too many niggling little troubles to fix by 100,ooo miles compared to a Japanese car's high standards.

I Liked It A Lot, Very Smooth And Very Quiet, Efficient On Fuel. — Buick Century was very good at what it was aimed for. Family or older folks driving very comfortably and smoothly and quietly over roughest freeze thaw northern roads in the nation. My main gripe was too soft seat and door wouldn't stay open, but flop shut on leg. There was a few dumb things needing repairs in first 100,ooo miles. Nothing major. I was all set for 2nd 100,ooo miles, but it was totaled in an accident. Boy do I now miss shifter on steering column and lots off lateral room for a long right leg to be comfortable in !! I rue almost all cars getting rougher riding now days to fling around corners and there are none without a shifter on floor and console sucking up precious leg room to the side. Dang !!

Pros

I like that the way it drives, smooth. It's simple and easy to clean.

Cons

I don't like getting stuck to the leader seats. It's not very stylish. I bought this car used and have had gasket problems, ever since then, I have had many problems with it :(

Nice Car If You Take Care Of It. — I like the car for just my personal use. I think if I would of taken care of it better it wouldn't be giving me so many problems. It drives great. I like the mileage, easy to clean and keep up with.

Pros

It is a nice car. It has lasted quite a long time. It is almost 15 years old now. This is an extremely comfortable car despite its outward appearance.

Cons

I've had problems with the fuel system, wiper blade mechanism, transmission, and underbody rusting.

A Car That Was Built To Last. — This car was built to last a long time. It is a high quality car. Right now it has 187700 miles on it. The transmission is beginning to signs of nearing end of life. The car's acceleration was great and although it was very loose, it had a lot of power in the V6. Definitely made it feel like you were floating over the road.

Pros

the aftermarket radio i had installed, and when the car does brake its cheap.

Cons

the maroon cloth interior.

My Blahuick Century. — There is nothing about this car that catches the attention. from the outside to the inside there is nothing to peek your interest. This type of detail is brought in through the performance. When you slam on the gas it goes... not quickly, but it still goes. The only exciting part is going around corner too fast and you can feel the horrible body roll.
