Built like a tank
By ryan on


1999 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan


Bought this car used with 68k mi on it, owned for now 3 years with no problems other than a blown battery (and thats aint the cars fault). Gas milage decent for a roomy car like this. Interior styling is boring at best though- features are there but you have to look hard to find them. To spice these models up- you must get them in sante fe red! Covers bumps in road like ship with lots of suspension float (this may have been less noticable in earlier days) but it mostly handles like an old rolls royce. Numb but easy steering feel, not a sports car but has a "silent but powerful" engine. Best on long highway trips or daily commutes. Bad to park in cities.

Best Features

Couch like seats, amazing stereo system, ultra reliable (they never break down), simple dashboard layout, roominess.

Worst Features

Revise exterior styling, need dual zone climate controls for such large car, tighten suspension and steering (perhaps a Buick Century SS wouldve fixed all this)
