1988 Buick CenturyReview

This Is One Of The Few Models Gm Built Right During The '80s! — This car drives and rides like a much larger car (nice and smooth! The V-6 with 4-speed auto was very peppy! Gas mileage was incredible (best - 32 MPG driving from San Francisco to San Diego at highway speeds). Replaced a small suspension part and the alternator within 3 months of purchasing it used - no other major repairs required after that! Was indeed the fanciest car I ever owned up until that time (traded the 88 Tercel for it).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy, reliable, decent gas mileage.

Cons: Not many left!

Good Car — It likes boost! requires tunning and customizing. has many small issues to deal with. interior and doors are poor quality. Engine runs forever. trans is descent. not safe in an accident.brakes are not the best. tires and suspension not the best.

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

Pros: fast as hell

Cons: not enough proformance acessories avalible
