Pros: "Upper 20s MPG, reliable, comfortable"

Cons: "Bad factory intake manifold gaskets"

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

"I bought this car with 60,000 miles on it last summer, everything on it works, A/C, windows everything. It looks new from the outside and its styling is beautiful. It's a very quiet, comfortable ride. The only problem I had with the 3100 SFI V6 engine was the intake manifold gasket began to leak, but because I bought it for about $1,000-2,000 less than a comparable Toyota or Ford, it was worth it. Since fixing that, this car hasn't given me any trouble at all. I typically average 29 MPG in mixed driving here in Florida. All in all, I'd definitely buy another Buick Century, the only thing you need to watch out for is the intake manifold gasket, and you're good to go."

"Really liked the 2001 Buick Century roomy mid-size, 60/40 front split seats, simple easy to use controls for A/C, radio, rear defogger etc. And the gearshift on the STEERING COLUMN and not the big center consoles that cars have now...... And the beige/gold color, the paint colors now for Buick, Chevrolet, Ford are not good. When I bought in 2001 had the dealer upgrade to nicer radio with CD, still works good. Had the car 14 years, selling it now."

Pros: "Mechanically excellent, service records, looks nic"

Cons: "Needs rust repair to pass inspection"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"Runs perfectly, uses no oil, looks nice, no dents or significant dings. Low mileage considering its age. Have service records since I bought it at 78K miles. However, needs rocker rust repair (cost unknown) and license plate bulbs to pass inspection per an AAA inspection I had done today. One front wheel bearing is starting to make noise, and should be replaced before too long. Estimated cost $350. Otherwise, in good shape. Very nice interior with leather, and all the normal options. Weathertech floor mats. No photo on my computer. Will take some and send if you ask, but it looks good."

"I bought this car used with 34,000 miles. I have had absolutely no problems with it. It gets great gas mileage, 30 highway. The only thing besides oil changes and new tires as needed, was a new battery. The only negative is the size. The Century is the smallest Buick and I would upsize one model if I ever replace it. It's fine for me since I am the only one who uses it on a daily basis. Longer trips with 4 people it's a little crowded. Other than that, I love this car!"

"Ive Always Enjoyed driving these Buicks they are some of the Best riding cars out there, my Buick Century is 16 years old But it still drives absolutely perfect, As long as you do the regular scheduled Maintenance on them and tend to any major issues that may come up in a reasonable amount of time these cars will continue to drive and run like a champ"
