My Daughter's Car
By Bob Bruggeman on
2002 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
My dad gave this car to my daughter when she got her driver's license a few months ago. When she received it, it only had 10,000 miles on it. Overall, it is a great car. Good visibility and a very comfortable, quiet ride. The car has somewhat of a conservative look, which I like. Plenty of trunk space. Fuel economy is very good. The dashboard layout is conservative but functionable. The 3.1 litre V6 engine has done GM proud over the years. The only problem we have had with the car is an occasional brake pad rubbing sound in the left rear wheel. The car was taken to the local dealer, but they could not find a problem with it. This car should give my daughter many years of good service.
Good visibality. Great ride with comfortable seats. Excellent fuel economy for a mid-size model. Large trunk.
2005 was the last model year for the Century. The LaCrosse has replaced it. Reviews on the LaCrosse have been mixed.
