"Nice car runs good. It is comfortable I just wish it wouldn't rust on the rocker panels Gm made a cheap mistake that could potential cost them customers in the future including myself I am thinking about a Toyota or Honda next time. But overall it is a good car for the money since it is a lot cheaper than a foreign car."

Cons: "Rotting rocker panels!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Purchased this vehicle with 195000 miles recorded. The vehicle now has nearly 290,000 on it and the only work I've done on it I consider normal maintanance, brakes & rotors; wipers; muffler; tires one battery and many oil changes. Had to replace the multi-function switch with an after market that has worked great. Purchased a newer vehicle which sits in the garage until I sell this one. Rust is now getting the best of it but it still runs like a young pup."

"While perhaps thought of as an 'old person's car' my 2004 Century is dependable,comfortable and gets good gas mileage. Not having a car payment is also nice."
