Fun First Car — My century had good acceleration and braking. the 3.3L V6 was amazing. loads of power. handled like a family sedan. the only major repairs needed was to the transmission, twice. It was my first car, so I thought it was fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good acceleration

Cons: weak transmission

Beautiful — ugly car, loved the blue suede interior, horizontal speedometer was awesome, lots of power for a 3.3L, cheap on repairs, easy to break into when you lock your keys in it, plastic wood grain was a nice touch, best part is when the drivers door hinge weld broke (Thanks Dad)

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

Pros: To look like a poor person

Cons: Gm product      :s

Reliable But Doesn't Catch The Eye. — It's old and an eye sore. But the paint job is solid not rust and it runs like a top. 25 miles to the gallon. I like how solid the car is, you can walk on the car and it leaves no dents.

Pros: Runs well, reliable, easy to work on engine.

Cons: Terriable turning radius.

My First High School Car — I have this baby straight piped and she purrs really good, it seats 6, front wheel drive, good acceleration, fair braking, cornering could use some improvement though. It's a boxy grandma-rod, it can pull a trailer but you have to get a special hitch attachment for it. up to (2,000lbs.) Fair MPG between (18-30) depending on if its a 2.2L 4-banger or a (3.3LV6=way better) My buick looks good especially for 220,000 miles Recently rebuilt tranny and engine The interior has wood trimming along the whole front, car is a more of a cruiser than a street racer or go-kart.

Pros: Good exceleration, comfortable, good appearance

Cons: squeaky drum breaks (in rear) caused by dirt entering the brakes and causing lack of lubrication and more friction

1993 Buick Century Custom Wagon — It's an older car, but I love her. She's sturdy and well built. The engine and transmission has over 170,000 miles on it. The odometer and trip meter broke last year, and the rear driver's window doesn't roll down, but she's a great car to drive nonetheless. The paint is scratched and it needs a new headliner, but overall she's a lot of fun to drive.

Pros: Runs great, comfortable, sturdy and fun to drive

Cons: Needs some work, paint is scratched, needs a new headliner
