1991 Buick Century Sedan Custom 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car as my first (and so far only) car my sophomore year of high school. Bought at $600 and since then have put on new tires, starter, water pump and only one major repair over $100. Have only put about 9,000 mile son it, and I just creeped over 103,000 about 2 weeks ago. It's been a great car, gets me where I need it, the air still works beautifully, and it has some pick-up too with the 3.3 V6 automatic. I'm in the process of doing a mileage test but I usually only fill up every 2-3 weeks depending on how much I drive around. Well built car for a first ride.


Best Features

I like the power. I just recently drove down to a nearby lake where I really got to test it's ability with hills, it was great.


Worst Features

The suspension feels a bit wobbly at times, and especially around turns but that could be a personal issue too.

Review

When I needed to buy a car in a hurry, a mechanic friend recommended this car which was being sold by the owner's estate. In over ten years of driving, it cost less than $1000 in repairs. When the car died in an accident, the motor and transmission were still excellent with over 350000kms (about 220000 miles) on the odometer. It made several trips through the Canadian Rockies and BC mountains towing my 14ft fibreglass trailer without a problem. In over forty years of driving this was the best car I owned for perfomance, reliability and value.


Best Features

Very smooth ride; a cup of coffee sitting on the dash would not move during the ride. It had enough power with the V6 3.1 litre to maintain speed on steep mountain highways.


Worst Features

With old age the body was starting to rust severely, but no more than other cars in our climate.

Review

When we bought this car I thought, here we go, a granny car that eats gas and will hardly get up and go, but was I wrong. We bought this car with 65K miles on it and have 34k since and it has been wonderful. 20mpg city and an amazing 29 hwy! If I had known was I was getting I may have paid more for it! All I can say is I hope the new Buicks are just as reliable and comfortable to drive!


Best Features

Cruise Control, Ride & Fuel Economy!


Worst Features

A way to adjust passenger side mirror.

Review

I bought this car used in 1996 with
51000 miles on it. During the 7 years
that I have owned this car there has
been very few problems with it. The
only major problem was the AC
compressor went out at about 85,000
miles. There have been only minor
things like the fan motor and has the
power steering pump replaced at 90,000
miles. However, outside of that there
has been only routine upkeep and
maintaince done. This car still has
great power when needed from the 3.3L 6
cylinder even after 113,000 miles.


Best Features

Great power from the 3.3L 6 cylinder engine, interior and all controls were well thought out by GM.


Worst Features

Cannot think of any improvements, because it has been just a GREAT CAR!!
