1994 Buick Century Special 4dr Sedan
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.
