    Good Summer Car. — This car was awesome during spring summer and fall but once winter came that ended it. Kept getting stuck on hills. Couldn't get into my drive way. Other than them issues I loved the car and would suggest it to a family who was looking for a reliable and good car.

    Pros: Rode smooth.

    Cons: When snow came I couldn't get in my drive way with out gunning it from the road or i'd get stuck.

    A Decent Car For A Good Price — The car is not fuel efficient. The ride is smooth. Had a lot of electrical problems. The pick up is not bad. The car is very roomy. It is very good for long distance travel. The front contained bench seats.

    Pros: Drives like a boat

    Cons: Drives like a boat

    Awesome Car To Drive And Own — love this car. big, comfy, but definitely has some power behind it. Rarely needs repairs, and when it does, they're usually really cheap. Haven't had any problems other than replacing brake and fuel lines, and that's from New England winters' road salt. Love the ability to customize it, and that most mods can be done on my own without breaking the bank. Fun to drive because nobody expects it to get up and go like it does

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    Yay First Cars. — A sturdy car, it is capable of getting you from point A to point B with exceptional comfort. With highly comfortable blue leather bench seats and a very gentle and quiet glide down the road, it is no wonder why elder people appreciate this car so much. Although, it is quite the boat. So unless you are capable of driving with a minimal turn radius and a slower acceleration ( not terrible, but it needs its kick in time if you punch it ) it would not be recommended. The interior of mine is entirely light blue and leather, so it does not serve well without tinted windows in the growing heat. The car itself is quite sturdy, though the sound system, maybe from age, is worn. CD player spit the CD at you in refusal, speakers rattle. You know, the fun stuff.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great comfort.

    Cons: Granny car factor.

    Very Reliable — Acceleration i think is quite good for a v6 especially with such a heavy car. Braking is alright. You are going faster than you think in this car, so even though your braking it may not be enough foot pressure on the pedal. Handling is outstanding i think. I avoided more than 10 accidents, especially in the winter where i had to instead of braking, veer around the threatning vehicle. Tight turn radius also for a sedan. Appearence all around i think is great. Just didnt like the stock rims for wheel covers so i painted mine. Cost of ownership is pretty low, although mine had something rare wrong with it where i had to replace the whole engine. Thats right...the whole engine. Thats how much i value this car. Maintenance, as long as you keep the fluids level and fresh and the filters and other minor stuff up to par, you will probably only have to fix minor things like spark plugs, brakes, rotors, tires, shocks...stuff like that. Just when you buy it, make SURE more than one mechanic looks it over, becouse one thing i noticed with Buicks is that if its broke, its fricken broke. any major issue with the car could be hidden to one mechanic, and not to another and will cost you into the thousands. Fun car to shine up real nice and roll through the hood, at least thats what i do. Just a comfy, tough, powerful vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It will last you for a long time

    Cons: Any broken gaskets, brown coolant, or mixing oil and coolant DO NOT BUY.

    Buick Centruy — I have a V6, and this thing takes off! leather seats, cd. the works! Was my grandma's so i know where it's been. Gotta love an American Classic. Bought at full KBB value, cause I'm a good grandkid. Buick builds the best, and I only buy GM! THIS IS WHY!!! a great car

    Pros: everything.

    Cons: maybe the piston slap, but it goes away, so NOTHING!

    Great Family Value Vehicle — I liked that this car and it rarely gave me troubles. It comfortably took me wherever I needed to go. Seats and ride allowed for a comfy trip for either the short or long haul. It also had plenty of get-up-and-go.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great fuel economy, comfortable, and dependable

    Cons: The only problem is the car is prone to rusting from the bottom up.
