I bought this car used with over 150,000 miles on it. I was worried about the high mileage at first. I have driven this car over 50,000 miles with no problems. This is the most comfortable and reliable car I have ever had. I did not know it before I purchased this car but I am a Buick fan for life. Great Car, Great gas mileage, high comfort level, great reliability.

We bought the year model 2004 used because the previous year models had a gasket problem. This car has a wobbly feel to its wheels which I think is because of poor wheel bearings, not weak side walls of the tires. I have not bothered to pay for new replacements. I recommend these three "upgrades": 1. Pour a can of transmission Seafoam in the automatic transmission by pouring it down the tube of the check stick. 2. Replace the air filter with a K&N or home made from cut reusable air conditioning filter material. MPG will improve 10%. 3. Replace the front door speakers with anything else, 5.25". We hope this car will last a long while. It's a good choice for large people.

Great deals to be had on this car.

Just recently purchased a 2004 Century with 79,000Kms in absolutely mint condition. Nice Metallic Augusta Green paint job with not one blemish. Wasn't on my radar at all until I read in Consumer reports that it had fantastic reliability and could be had for cheaper than comparable Japanese models. I don't see it as an "Old Man" car...the styling is sharp and I mistook an older Lexus for one the other day. Very Very happy with the car..lots of power..nice smooth ride over rough road surfaces. Thinking a nice set of Rims and a better set of tires would really kick it up a notch and I will have a car that will turn heads and last me for years.

Bring Back the Century

This is my third Buick Century. I bought them because of the comfortable seats and good mileage. We got 34 mpg traveling between Maine and FL this year -- with the car packed full. I want another one, but alas they are no longer made.

We have had this car since brand new. No major repairs beyond Brakes and rotors. Did it my self cause this car is easy to work on. Still getting 28 MPG on the hwy. My 00 LeSabre is a great car too but the Century's mileage is so much better it's our touring car. Yes, it's an old man car but it's comfortable and efficient. I really don't care what other people think about the car I drive. At least it's not an "edge".

I can't wait to get rid of it. I was driving at night and the lights stopped working. They didn't work with the switch on "auto" or "on". The ride is comfortable but you have to floor it to pass and it takes about 2 seconds to accelerate when going 60 just to start moving = slow!

Nice ride

My buick century is a old person car. When passing another car, you have to floor it because it rarely down shifts. the seats are very comfortable and the ride is very quiet and the car "floats" when on a hilly road.

I used this car for as comuter car. I have 100k on the car now, never missed a beat. One set of tires and front brakes is all I have done. Way quieter than a Camry and 30+ mpg. It is the best car I have ever owned. Would highly recommend the Buick to anyone who wants miles of trouble free service and great gas mileage for a larger car.

This the second Buick Century I've owned, the first I drove over 75 thousand miles without a single bit of trouble. In fact, I never even had to replace the brake shows in that time. And I drove it across the U.S. and back 5 times. It is a quiet, smooth riding vehicle that does what a family sedan should do, and it never received the praise it should have from a public besotted with wanna-be racing-car sedans.

Great Car!

I've owned my 2004 Century for 5 months and I'm very pleased. I intended on purchasing a Honda Accord and stumbled onto this Buick so I gave it a test drive. I was truly surprised, The comfort, quiet and ride quality both in town and on the highway is unlike anything I've experienced. The biggest surprise is the gas millage, I 've experienced near 28 MPG in town and over 34 on the highway. This is better than the Accords 4 cylinder. The depreciation was double that of the Honda and subsequently over half the cost for the same year vehicle. It was a easy decision, I'm very pleased with the car and expect many years of satisfied driving. I highly recommend a late model Century.

Selling - won't miss it a minute

When I purchased this car, I thought "it's a Buick - how can I go wrong?". Let me count the ways! Every time I get out of the car, I get a severe static shock. I have to touch my keys to the door frame to avoid it. My wife has gotten shocked enough times that she insists we take her car on trips. Getting out also requires a manouver similar to getting out of a bean-bag chair, because the seats are so low to the ground. Finally the car is so boring! I bought a silver car with gray interior. Everything is gray! It's like being in a black and white movie

I've owned my new Century for 2 months, and true to Buick's form, it's a great car! It handles well, is comfortable, and not too bad on fuel mileage either. My old car was a 1992 Buick Regal that had 320,000 miles on it when I traded it off. . . it was a great car! I expect the Century to be equally great. When I trade . .I trade for a Buick!

I bought this 2004 Century only recently, but like it a lot. It continues my great experience with Buicks. This 2004 Century replace a 1992 Century which I also enjoyed a lot. I also own a 2002 Buick LeSabre which replaced a 1990 Buick LeSabre, which had replaced a 1980 Buick Regal. Buicks have very good quality, few problems and last long.

Gas mileage thus far has been excellent with 30 to 31 mpg on the highway which is most of my driving time. Comfortable, peppy when needed 3.1, 6cyl. Quiet and smooth ride. Easy to read and maneuver controls and dials.

We'll i am a 21 year old and i own a 2004 BUICK CENTURY . people often ask me why i didnt get a sport car like other 21 year olds have. well i love the centurys RIDE, its so smooth, i never get tired of driving it , I like to say "once you go buick, you never go back" and thats true. my friends who have seen it love its ride and decent preformance. but believe me on the highway if you want to pass , it has enough power to pick up and go. I RECOMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE WHO WANTS A NICE SMOOTH RIDE, FOR LESS MONEY THEN OTHER HIGH-PRICED LUXURY CARS.

Great Ride

This is my third Century. I cover the state of Ohio, as a saleman, and put about 40,000 miles a year on the car. I can,t say enough about the Century, great ride, and great reliability it's never let me down. The only maintance is oil changes, normal wear items like tires and brakes. To bad this is the last year for the Century. The LaSalle is beautiful but it cost's to much for a guy on a company car plan.

I actually Bought my Buick in sept. 2000. I have put 48000 miles a year on it and I have not had a day of trouble out of it. It has a great ride nas well as a terrific Car strereo. I financed for five years and it has one year before it is free and clear mine. I have never owned a better car. It gets better gas mileage than any other 6 cylinder car I have seen....even better than the Honda and toyotas.

The Bet -- - Would buy another

This is the smoothest riding vehicle I've ever owned. Very comfortable. Some reviews knock the car's acceleration and I do not understand this. I feel the pick up is fine but I'm not a speedster.

The only complaint I have is that there is a vibration with the wheels. Two dealerships have checked this out and have stated there was nothing wrong. I assume it is the engine vibration exaggerated by the light (doesn't feel like heavy metal) weight of the vehicle. Otherwise, it drives like my late dad's Oldsmobiles-Yep! Even the feeling that the trani is slipping lol :)

This car is fun to drive, extremely quiet, and smooth. I commute to Newport Beach from South Orange County, so I need a nice car to keep my sanity. However, if I need to roar into Vegas, I can cruise going 90 all the way up the 15. So there you have it.

So far, it's exceeded our expectations. Having traded a 1989 LeSab. Limited w/ over 150,000 miles on it and having no major problems, we figured we'd keep the 1989 Park Ave. (over 84,000 trouble free miles) and go for the Century.

I love this car. My company pays for the gas but the car seems to get descent gas milage. Very comfortable. I also have a 2003 Mercedes C320 so I know. I would have liked to have the option to get the satalite radio installed for comercial free music while driving. Overall I am very happy with this car. Bravo Buick!
