"Replaced front brakes 3yrs ago. Still has original rear brakes. Dealer inspected. Very few things needed replacing. Did replace wiring last year, just because of the age of car, not because of any problem. Front wheel drive has helped greatly driving in heavy snow. Don't want to replace it until absolutely necessary."

"I have owned the car for five years. I would have kept it except a neighbor had a good deal on a car I have always wanted. The Buick drives smooth, is comfortable and has had few problems over the years. It was hit on the side this past year, so it needs a little body work. The thermostate needs to be replaced. Sound system is excellent.Color is neutral and it has a landau top."

"I have owned this car for 6 years and it has proven to be reliable and sturdy. I would buy another one if I felt GM has been able to capitalize on the dependability. The Buick Century brand from 2000-2006 are all over the road and I feel they will be for sometime."
