2002 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)

Review

My first good impressions of this car have gradually degraded to disillusionment. I still like the good performance for such a small economical engine but the noise gets irritating sometimes. Not just the roar of the accelerating engine, but the whine of the drivetrain when slowing down. The smooth ride on well maintained main roads changes to choppy, bouncy and ungainly on secondary roads and the suspension bottoms out with alarming thuds on potholes. My Corolla did better. A/C vents don't adjust upward enough to remove a layer of hot air at forehead level.

Best Features

exterior styling and finish; economical engine with good power

Worst Features

provide brighter lighting in trunk and rear seat; reduce drivetrain noise; put a hand release on the parking brake; improve shock absorber resistance on compression
