I got my car a year ago from splish splash, bad dealership (opinion) they sold it with a bad gasket and within the first 3months it had to be repaired. Thank god they admitted their guilt and fixed it. "Meen Green" has been running quite smoothly ever since. I love the fact that it's so spacious. But I enjoy the concert surround sound the best. Every ride is so satisfying in my Buick!
Ride and Concert sound.
GM should use a better adhesive for the door panels, mine also has come undone and every time I open the back door it flaps back. It doesn't bother me much because I don't usually have passengers, but it's a suggestion to benefit those who do.
The Buick is a very comfortable car that provides a nice drive. However, it is much like driving a land yacht with slow turn response. We had a large number of stupid problems that were expensive to repair -- glove compartment fell off in my hand the second year ($500 to repair, not covered by warranty); three windows have fallen off their tracks so that they cannot be rolled up ($600 each to repair), multiple problems with trunk (keeps falling on our heads despite two repairs); transmission, A/C compressor, etc etc.
Comfortable seats, lots of space, huge trunk, engine is reliable
i have had this car for over 6 years got it with 1100 miles on it it now has 153,000 only thing i have changed was the abs battery 2 times which was under warrenty and about 10,000 miles ago my odometer goes out and i have to tap the dash to make come back on this car was build in canada which is diferent from usa so for having 150,000 miles and still running strong is a plus well worth the 8000 that i paid for it!!!
traction control works perfect i lived in cleveland ohio for a long time and i would drive right past people at intersections that were stuck and they all look at me like how the heck is he not gettin stuck lol
I've put so many miles on this car, after buying it over 100K, with only routine maintenance needed and a couple of larger repairs. It's roomy enough for friends or luggage, but is small enough that I don't feel like I'm driving a whale. So much room in the trunk! It's been such a great car. The body isn't the most appealing to younger generations (kind of granny-ish) but the quality and usefulness is unmatched. Quiet, smooth ride. Great acceleration uphill. I love my car.
Smooth ride, very quiet. Spacious. Great heater and AC. Worth every bit of the $6,000 I paid.
The radio isn't the best. I don't like the exterior design. Almost had big transmission failure, but I took it to the shop when I first noticed it acting strangely. Tire blew unexpectedly and I still don't know why.
I bought the car with 56,000 miles in 2005. It's 2008 now and I've put over 70,000 more on it. Drove from Venice Beach to Cleveland, Ohio and back flawlessly 4 times now have never broke down and only had to put minimal wear and tear mantainence like brakes and tires. After 3 years and 70,000 miles never had any break downs or mechanical failures. This car was made in Canada so it was built to higher standards. I only payed $7000 for it and have already gotten my money's worth. Excellent in the snow especially with the flawless ABS and traction control. If you're looking for a reliable car with great gas mileage, 30 mpg, look for a Century built in Canada not Mexico
If you have the driver window down and you use the washer fluid it leaks right in and lands directly on the power window controls. Even though the car is in mint condition and automatic lights could activate sooner when driving into a tunnel
