Best Car I've Ever Had — The car is very dependable, I have had it for a while now and it starts everyday. The only thing I have replaced is one tire and an air filter! However the 3100 V6 motor it has is known for intake manifold gasket and head gasket failure which kind of worries me. The car is super easy to drive though and floats down the road, and she has PLENTY of get up when you need it. The cloth seats are really comfortable too. and the car is very spacious, plenty of room for 5, but it will seat 6! The trunk is really big as well. The automatic headlights are awesome, and makes you kind of take the luxury for granted lol. Any ?'s feel free to ask.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Decent Gas mileage, Prtetty quick for a granny car, VERY comfortable

Cons: Motor is known for failure, some of the interior seems cheap.

Bland But Enjoyable Nonetheless — Overall, I am happy with my purchase despite it's short comings. I paid $3,900 for it with 68,000 miles so resale value isn't so great on this one. Performance is pretty sub-par for a V6 -- on par with most 4 cylinders today. Nevertheless, it is pretty quiet. Since buying it, have had to replace the AC compressor and the fuel pump but I think that has more to do with the way it was taken care of by the previous owner than with the car itself. Occasional issue with bucking during acceleration when the car shifts gears (tune-up did not fix it, hopefully not the transmission!). Style is pretty conservative as are all Buicks. Gas mileage leaves much to be desired. I usually average about 20 mpg's and sometimes as low as 17. I usually fill it with $35 worth of gas and get about 250 miles out of it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Barely any noise at low speeds, automatic lights, great speakers, comfy cloth seats, cheap if buying used

Cons: Sub-par performance and fuel economy, bland design, lack of a CD player, low resale value

Bangin' Buick — Drives excellent, great on gas. Overall the quality of the car is excellent. Performance wise.. she's a Buick... she performs like a Buick should. Appearance wise, I tend to think of her as the sportier model of the Buick family :P.. gotta do the best with what ya got!

Pros: Great on gas

Cons: Not supercharged...

Buick Century 6.5/10 — Accelerates from 0-60 in 10.2 seconds, at least with 80K on it. The interior is 100% granny approved gas mileage is amazing, has a 12-14 gallon tank and costs about $24 to fill. One slightly significant repair when purchased. ABS is the first usually to go on these.

Pros: Gas mileage, V6 quick acceleration

Cons: Grannymobile! rides like a boat

Buick Century — doesn't heat up or cool down fast at all. Slow accelerations. Rides nice though for road trips. Mine has about 300,000 miles on it and have had to put barely anything into it. The electronic windows are starting to go on it and the windshield wiper motor is going out on it. But for the mileage I think it is definitely been worth the money.

Pros: rides nice

Cons: doesn't get up and go

Great Gramma Car! — Well! It's a gramma car! but it gets great gas mileage, and has all the options I want except for leather and a sunroof! It has a pretty good stereo considering it's all factory. It's built fairly good, and it rides very nicely! The acceleration is great off the line but it seems to fall short once it gets to 60km/h. There are a few adjustments I would like to make to the cars appearance such as after market rims, and window tint! But that will come later. Over all considering what I need a vehicle for, it fits into my life almost perfectly!

Pros: Good gas mileage even when racin' around

Cons: Its a GM

Haven't Had It Long And Already 2 Electric Windows Have Failed — I haven't had the vehicle very long and already two windows have failed. Also when I began this search online I soon discovered that the car has had numerous problems and factory call backs.

Pros: got the vehicle at below book value

Cons: bad history reports given on vehicle

Couldn't Be Any Better! —

As technically my first car I love it! It is very comfortable. I paid $800.00 for it in March 2011 with unknown mileage a gas gauge that didn't work and needing an O2 sensor. I fixed the odometer to find out that it had about 191,000 miles when i bought it. I cleared the O2 sensor code and it passed inspection. I drove it until mid august without having to do anything before replacing the O2 sensor because it was starting to get a hesitation problem. I got a new one and that went right away. In the summer the air conditioning still worked it just needed to be re-charged. (lost freon since it's higher miles and older which is normal) Then it blew ice cold but took a minute to get there since after all it does have a lot of miles. It has very good heat and does not take that long to warm up in the winter time. That combined with good tires this car is excellent in the snow! Plows through the foot we recently got like nothing. Overall this has been a very good car for me and has never not started and has never broken down. It is all original and it's all mine. I probably won't sell it and will probably drive it until it gets irreparable which won't happen because it's a Buick. Oh and for being a large car with a decent amount of weight it gets decent gas mileage as well. :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable Peppy and Reliable

Cons: Rocker panels are rusty

Great Car But Had An Interest In Color Change — Only changing cars due to desire for a newer model and different color Everything about this car is great and even my service station and the dealers have commented that it is a great car. Very comfortable seats and lots of space. Easy to drive and gives you the safety of driving a bigger car other than an SUV. More luxury.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: New brakes; very comfortable bench seats; shift on the column; V6 good exceleration

Cons: prefer a different color
