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 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!!

Review

My parents bought this car brand new in 91'. While still under warranty(thank goodntess) they had to have 2or3 of the fuel injectors replaced and a fuel pump replaced twice.Sold bought it from my parents @68,000. Have had to replace 2 more fuel injectors, computer(twice), several sensors, TCC selenoid,(car will still stall or start bucking at low speeds for no reason)water pump(3 times).This car has always been serviced by the dealer it was bought from, maybe we just got the lemon!!


Best Features

Great highway car, fairly good gas mileage in city driving. The 3300 motor has NICE pickup for this car


Worst Features

Make last past 100,000, Buicks are supposed to be luxury cars!
