"GM made a HUGE mistake when they decided to stop making these. This model is still #1 in the handicapped parking spots because they are SO comfortable! Also, I still see a lot of this model on the road, which tells me they've been a dependable, long-lasting car. I'll be crying the day this car stops running. I've never owned a more reliable car and since my [failed] back fusion, its comfort has been a big plus."

"I purchased my Buick Century Limited used in 2008 with 81,000 miles and the current mileage is 135,000. Maintenance costs have been minimal, (oil changes, tires and brakes). I had to replace a broken sway bar at 110,000 and a window regulator but that is it. The car is comfortable for the driver and passengers. I am planning on driving this car until it dies but based on how it is running it looks like I have many miles to go. A great car for families on a tight budget and for new drivers. Nothing flashy but very dependable. If you want flashy drive this car for several years then buy a flashier car with the money you have saved by driving this car...you will probably wish you just stayed with this car."
