1997 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan


Not all cars are built the same. But I've had Buicks for that past 37 years, all of them have been very dependable averaging 300K miles before I sold them after owning them brand new. BUT this one has been the best so far! I would have sold it years ago, but I'm driving more and more and just can't bare to part with it. 630k miles are on it now, only replacing the usual belts, hoses, spark plugs&wires, fluids, brakes, and tyres etc. No major mechanical defects of any kind! Plus if I keep my foot out of it upon acceleration, I get 26 in the city and 33 on the highway running 80. Its reliable too! I live in Maine and TN its never been garaged and always fires right up regardless of temperature

Best Features

33 mpg. Rock Solid Reliability. Styling has aged well, its no beauty queen. but considering I've had it 14 years now it looks no different that the 2005 model which was the last Century. The comfort! Its supple without being marshmallowy. Its very civilized on the road and enough power for all needs

Worst Features

None really come to mind. Remember brand new this car only cost 17k dollars. Its not a Mercedes, but its been more places than others mercedes, and with LESS Trouble than any honda or toyota, I'm sure!
