Pros

Sweet vehicle, but defintely hacks people off - Obvious that it's not in a hurry!

Cons

First off, I paid too much for this car, but then, we all spend too much for the pretty things in life, no don't we? Second, the comfy ride is complicated by slow handling.

Very Nice For Their Time, But That Time Has Come And Gone! — Nice ride, options, and such, but pretty lame handling. I am second owner, car was well treated by previous owner. I really should have considered that the world won't allow for pleasure drivers anymore...it is always a rude competition, and or road rage if you don't stomp your gas and brakes like most others drive.

2000 Buick Century — I bought it used from a private seller. It's body is in rough shape and is really showing the rust. The engine hasn't given me any problems - only had to replace brakelines, change oil, brake pads things like that. Looks like junk, but still drives reliably.

Best Car I've Ever Had — The car is very dependable, I have had it for a while now and it starts everyday. The only thing I have replaced is one tire and an air filter! However the 3100 V6 motor it has is known for intake manifold gasket and head gasket failure which kind of worries me. The car is super easy to drive though and floats down the road, and she has PLENTY of get up when you need it. The cloth seats are really comfortable too. and the car is very spacious, plenty of room for 5, but it will seat 6! The trunk is really big as well. The automatic headlights are awesome, and makes you kind of take the luxury for granted lol. Any ?'s feel free to ask.

"Granny Car"

00 Buick Century — It's actually my wife's car. Its solid, safe, and durable. The engine is the same as in a Pontiac Grand Prix, so it's got some power with options for more. The stock sound system is fairly powerful. Lots of trunks space.

Great Car For Any Demographic — I bought this car to drive during the spring to fall seasons. The car saves me a great deal of gas mileage over the 4WD S-10. The controls for the radio are located on the steering wheel, & are very convenient. The cruise control is also easy to use.

rides nice

Cons

doesn't get up and go

Buick Century — doesn't heat up or cool down fast at all. Slow accelerations. Rides nice though for road trips. Mine has about 300,000 miles on it and have had to put barely anything into it. The electronic windows are starting to go on it and the windshield wiper motor is going out on it. But for the mileage I think it is definitely been worth the money.

Pros

Barely any noise at low speeds, automatic lights, great speakers, comfy cloth seats, cheap if buying used

Cons

Sub-par performance and fuel economy, bland design, lack of a CD player, low resale value

105

Bland But Enjoyable Nonetheless — Overall, I am happy with my purchase despite it's short comings. I paid $3,900 for it with 68,000 miles so resale value isn't so great on this one. Performance is pretty sub-par for a V6 -- on par with most 4 cylinders today. Nevertheless, it is pretty quiet. Since buying it, have had to replace the AC compressor and the fuel pump but I think that has more to do with the way it was taken care of by the previous owner than with the car itself. Occasional issue with bucking during acceleration when the car shifts gears (tune-up did not fix it, hopefully not the transmission!). Style is pretty conservative as are all Buicks. Gas mileage leaves much to be desired. I usually average about 20 mpg's and sometimes as low as 17. I usually fill it with $35 worth of gas and get about 250 miles out of it.

Pros

Good gas mileage even when racin' around

Cons

Its a GM

Great Gramma Car! — Well! It's a gramma car! but it gets great gas mileage, and has all the options I want except for leather and a sunroof! It has a pretty good stereo considering it's all factory. It's built fairly good, and it rides very nicely! The acceleration is great off the line but it seems to fall short once it gets to 60km/h. There are a few adjustments I would like to make to the cars appearance such as after market rims, and window tint! But that will come later. Over all considering what I need a vehicle for, it fits into my life almost perfectly!

Overall, Good. — Still good acceleration, repairs limited to: power windows, electrical (wiring harness) and, radiator leak. Great design interior and exterior, still getting 19-20 in town and 26-28 highway (speed is main differential on highway), excellent EOM parts. I still like it, but it's getting older and not as responsive.
