1994 Buick Century Special 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car to drive to work, and its excellent. Gas mileage is terrific, good mileage, comfortable, and very dependable. Looks could be better, but it is an older car. Body has no rust. Is a little small. But I am large. So that doesn't really count. Overall what a garret little car. Well worth purchasing.


Favorite Features

good mileage and good quality. DEPENDABLE


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a little larger for us bigger people

1994 Buick Century Special 4dr Sedan


Review

4th Buick,1st Century. I have no major problems with any of the Buicks I have owned. Just little things that normally go wrong. Looks are OK, but it has gotten me cross country from Seattle to Connecticut twice and with unsurpassed fuel mileage, 23 mpg plus and still above 21 mpg. Car has been paid off for over 8 years now and I am amazed that car makers can't come up with anything better. Guess they don't get it.

Review

In my opinion, the early to mid 90's versions of the Buick Century and Oldsmbobile Ciera are the closest thing to a Volvo that any domestic manufacturer has ever produced. These cars were rarely redesigned---but instead, they "evolved" with improvements to the engine/drivetrain, interior and safety features. They were internationally mid sized, 4 star safety rated and generally solid, reliable, understated transportation. Auto writers criticized GM for keeping the same basic design for so many years, but isn't this how Saab, Volvo and other European car makers approach things? The Century is a practical size, reasonably economical and with the 3100 V-6, plenty powerful for most driving.


Favorite Features

Reliability, safety, cheap to fix. The styling is not exciting, but it's tasteful. V-6 engine performance is more than adequate, fuel economy very reasonable for size of car. Trunk space is excellent, seats are comfortable. GM, probably made over 1.5 million of these vehicles. Parts available.


Suggested Improvements

Power window motors fail too often. Electrical system (power locks, etc.) should be better.

Review

This vehicle was in the shop a lot. In the time we owned it, we spent $2,400 on repairs. We replaced the starter, the alternator, the radiator, and the list goes on and on. It only had 76,577 miles on it when we bought it. It fell apart soon after.


Favorite Features

It's gone now.


Suggested Improvements

Use quality parts and build a decent car.
