The 93 century special that i have aquired has and still is alot of fun to drive around especialy while on the road. this car may be old but the comfort on the road is amazing. and all the upgrades you can get from edlebrock, HKS and many more for this car is acu\tually surprising. with what ive done with it, the car gets about 23-26 MPG. it was done under $3,400. most wont spend this much on a car like this but honestly i belive and know its worth is. i would definatly recomend this to any new drivers that is looking for a new expirience.

In 1997, I bought a 1993 Buick Century with 160,000. miles for 2500 dollars. In 2004, the car had 253,000 miles. The six cylinder engine enabled me to buy a cheap high mileage vehicle, drive it for 7 years and put 93,000 additional miles on it. Like the consumer reviews state, the car does have so-so brakes. I must always keep 3 car lengths behind the car in front of me to allow for adequate braking. However the so-so brakes slowed me down and may have contributed to the longevity of my 1993 Buick Century Custom. The trim inside and outside the car does have a tendency to fall off, but who cares about trim. My passenger-side windshield wipers and power windows failed at about 200,000 miles.

Have had this car for quite a while. The 3.3L has probably been its saving grace. Now at nearly 13 years old, it's still going. Original motor and transmission at almost 270k miles. No real major repairs save the harmonic balancer pulley and the heater core. It has enjoyed eating alternators in the past 5 or so years-- 3, I believe. And the cruise control stopped working, but would require a new computer and simply would not be worth it at this point. All in all a great car, especially considering how long we've had it and how many miles it's traveled. Will only hope the next car I purchase will be as reliable.

This has been a solid and reliable car
for the past 2 years. No major
problems. I broke the Turn Signal
switch once and that was a pain to get
repaired. I also just recently had the
O2 sensor become disconnected which
caused me to get it towed. I didnt know
what was wrong, but took my mechanic
less than a minute to fix. Other than
that its just been the usual maint.
with the car.

We bought this car 3 years old with 30K
miles on it. Great power and handling.
Mileage 18-20 with V6. Just put a new
tranny in it at 140K miles. This was
the only time I have had to call a tow
truck with this car. Only other problem
has been with sensors. Would have had
dealer fix this when I first noticed
hesitation if I had any idea... As it
is I did not. Ended up replacing
numerous sensors (replaced O2 sensor
several times) and having various
repairs due to sensor gone bad. We're
now up to 2 kids. The back seat doesn't
allow much room for an infant car seat,
so we're going to trade in the Buick on
