Reliable, And Just A All Around Good Car. — It is a very nice. It has a lot of functions on it and has a smooth and comfortable ride. It is reliable and gets good gas mileage. It is pretty fun to drive and mess with but hard to find mods for it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Grandma car

Good :) — Very 'touchy' but smooth brakes and accelerator. Handles really well in snow and rain (when I get new tires). No repairs needed yet. Quite a few scratches and a few dents and a broken rear drivers side taillight but other than that not bad. Decent gas mileage, 40 bucks to fill it. It was my grandma's car, she bought it off the lot and gave it to me for a grad present. It's definatly an old person car but I like it, it's not a piece.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

I Love This Car — If you are looking for a solid performing, roomy reliable car at reasonable price, this is the car for you. Solid Buick make with alot of extras for the price. Great car for a growing family like mine. Engine is smaller than the Regal or LeSabre & I recommend this car to a friend or anyone that travel.

Its A Great Car, Smoothest Ride For An Old Car. — Build Quality - prob the only biggest thing I had to get replaced was the tires and alternator, and the cruise control stopped working, this car was also sideswiped HARD by a drunk driver driving a VAN, on the drivers side all I got was a dent on the front end (before the doors) but the impact was mainly on the doors -, not a scratch on the doors. And I was able to pop the dent out with a flawless look. btw, the car that was in front of me, was totaled, 1999 Malibu, folded like an accordion from the back. (happened to be the wife’s car.) I caught the drunk driver as he was trying to get away, and he had more problems then just a hang over the next day. Appearance - these cars tend to rust all in the same places bottom of doors I'm keeping it under control as ,much as I can but its inevitable. Cost of Ownership - as old as this car is, it drives like a dream. On the highway I get a lot of mileage on it I have done 4-5 hours straight before I have to fill up completely. 35.00 is fill up in Chicago IL.

Buick Century — Well, lets be honest...it's an old person car. The one I drove had low mileage, which was cool. The car never broke down (my sister drives it in DC/Montgomery County MD daily) The car had a rev limiter, which sucked cause I wanted to hear the car purr. It had good pickup, which is always important in DC.

A Good Solid Car That Need A Better Tranny To Make It A Nice Car. — good solid family kinda car,nice options and a smooth ride, but do not like abs sensors, or those really small fuses would have been nicer if it had bigger fuses, a better tranny,a full size tire for a spare,and it needed a much better jack as those camper scissor jacks are just garbage. but it was a nice ride will give it that.
