Heck Of A Nice Used Car. — Traded in a 2000 Neon for this much larger more comfortable car. Much more room, comfort, power! Mileage nearly equals the old Neon, with 27 poking around town and up to 33 on the highway. Interior pieces seem to be held together with baling wire however.

My Buick Surprise — I never thought of myself as a Buick driver. I thought Buicks were boring. But my peppy V-6 gets me around anyone I want to pass, and I average 30 mpg! I know ugly hybrids that can't do better than that! And the ride is outstanding.

Reliable Car With No Major Issues — Not the most stylish vehicle, but a safe one with great gas mileage and reasonable maintenance. The Buick Century is usually reasonably priced, and seems to have found a new following among college students. I will be driving this vehicle until the wheels fall off.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Nice Comfortable Car, Good On Gas For A Full Size V6 Family Sedan. — Good looking car, 105k mi. Rides nice, but handling not too impressive because it's a boring family sedan. 30 mpg highway with 3.1 V6. Only problem is it's got that (expletive removed) microchip on the ignition key and it cost $1100 about 2 years ago to have the BCM and ignition module replaced, only to have it malfunction again on me a few weeks ago, but this time I was able to find a GM dealer who didn't care about the stupid law and bypassed that garbage system for me. Blue book on a 2003 with over 100k isn't high enough to warrant maintaining an elaborate but poorly engineered theft deterrent system. I installed a class 2 receiver hitch for light towing. Keeping in mind it's a front-wheel drive automatic, I don't use overdrive when towing, and I keep the speed down to 65 and keep the trailer gross wt under 1000 lbs.
