toyota to buick
By John Eagle on
2005 Buick Century Standard 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
I've owned Geo metros, Toyota corollas, and other cars. The 2005 Century I bought shocked me with 36 mpg on a 1000 mile trip. My 1999 corollas only got 38 max. I was so impressed that I bought another used Century (1999). Why buy small cars when the comfort/power/reliability of a Century gets near same mpg? My 16 yr old son didn't want me to get a "grandpa car", but he sure loves it now that it's his! Dependable, reliable, affordable but I was careful in my research and examination of used Centurys. I walked away from some "bargains" because I found rust carefully concealed or the engine/ride didn't sound/feel right. I'm going to buy one more soon!
Give me a break. These Centurys are comfortable, have great reputations, are reliable and affordable. People that desire more and more sporty/luxury have gotten our country/world into the mess it's in now.
