Great reliable car

a nice, comfortable family hauler that excels on the freeway but falls short in the handling department.
Power Ranked 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 better.
"The motor and transmission tuning made the Grand Am more powerful than the Century."
Family Car Ranked 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 worse.
"The Buick Century is a better family car as it rides better, is more comfortable, and is more practicable than the Grand Am."

Power Ranked 2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport FWD better.
"The 2.0T is noticeably more powerful, although the 1.5T in the civic is definitely adequate. I much prefer the 10-speed auto in the 2-liter accord vs the CVT in the 1.5-liter accords and civic."
writes:
Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"Cleaner design, does not have ugly Honda chrome bar and the huge fake vents that only Honda designers seem to love."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"It just looks so much better both exterior and interior wise."
