1990 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

I origanly had a 92 Buick Century 4 dr. I cracked the raidatior didn't know over heated it. Then everyone thought i blew it up but i ended up driving it for 8 1/2 months after wit a rod knocking it had 149670 on it when i let her go it was the best dependable car i had till that time. Then i bought a 1990 Buick century 4 dr custom it had the 3300. Got it back in feb. she had 139000 on her when i got it. She now has 147258 on her and ill be darn if i cant kill her. The power is great, handles like a dream, its all i have owend sience i was 16. the body is a lil rough on it but she is in great running condition. every thing on the motor is in great shape all working great the only thing i have

1990 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

I was given this car 2 years ago as a full-time student. It looks like a broken down rust bucket, but keeps on driving. At 174,000 miles, I have no complaints about this vehicle. It breaks the stereotype of of poorly built GM cars. The engine is an unstoppable workhorse. Lots of rust, I have seen others around with the same faded beige and same rust spots. Fuel efficiency is not as good as the 29 mpg highway when it was new. Poor turn radius; sometimes difficult to park If this car doesn't rust away, I might get another 100,000 miles out of the engine. I would consider another Buick (even though it's an old man's car.)


Best Features

luxurious seats, extreme reliability


Worst Features

cheap steel that rusts easily

Review

I now have 256,000+ miles on my
Century. It still has the original
engine/transmission. This car is very
solid and dependable.The last trip I
made I got 30.2 MPG. I get about 20-22
around town. Change the oil regularly
too. A Buick dealer could not believe
the mileage on the car and that this
was the original engine. I told him
that that is exactly what is wrong
with the American attitude- as he was
shocked that the car could last so
long, and be in the shape that it
is.Would he be shocked if it was a
Honda, BMW, etc? Probably not.It looks
like a fairly old car, but the body
integrity is solid, with no dings,
dents. All in all a wonderful car.


Best Features

Very smooth, comfortable ride. Original stereo/cassette still works like new.


Worst Features

I would buy a new one (when mine finally gets too tired to move)if I could have as much faith in the new product as I have in mine: Where do the salespeople come from?

Review

I had this car for 6 years, and I had
very little problems with it, but the
key is to keep up with the oil changes,
and so on. It is a cheap costing car
that gets you from A to B with about a
problem. If you do not car about the
lack of frills, then this car is for
you.


Best Features

Is cost almost nothing to maintain


Worst Features

No cup holder, and need to have a better water pump.
