As a girl whos husband is deployed, buying a car didnt thrill me! Sean was amazing! Got me into a great car at my price range. He listened to my needs. Didn't flinch when I said I wanted my stepdaughter to look at the car! I loved that the finance guy was a Briggs. Even enjoyed when I went back two days later, everyone remembered who I was! It truly felt like family there.

I've owned Geo metros, Toyota corollas, and other cars. The 2005 Century I bought shocked me with 36 mpg on a 1000 mile trip. My 1999 corollas only got 38 max. I was so impressed that I bought another used Century (1999). Why buy small cars when the comfort/power/reliability of a Century gets near same mpg? My 16 yr old son didn't want me to get a "grandpa car", but he sure loves it now that it's his! Dependable, reliable, affordable but I was careful in my research and examination of used Centurys. I walked away from some "bargains" because I found rust carefully concealed or the engine/ride didn't sound/feel right. I'm going to buy one more soon!

This car has been an excellent performing car. The Special Edition Package sets it off. The leather interior, dual automatic temperature controls, and chrome wheels are great and generally found only in more expensive automobiles. Never a reliability problem. Mileage runs 23- 25 city and 30-32 highway. May not do quite that well with an ethanol mix, but still close.

Great car GM

This is the best car for the money I've ever purchased. It's the best "regular car" I could find, and I am quite pleased with the performace, mileage, and comfort. I drive 100 mi. a day round trip for work and I love driving "Miss Daisy". (Yes I name my vehicles)

Better than my LaCrosse

I also have a LaCrosse and the Century has a smoother ride and more comfortable seats, plus much better gas mileage in the city. Do not listen to the auto experts that believe a harsh ride, stiff seats and a run through the cones is what the real world of driving is. I have 9,000 on the Century and test drove both Camry and Accord prior to purchase, both rode stiffer and were not as powerful. Plus the quality with the Buick is just as good. The six is fine and getting on ramps and passing is no problem.

This is a perfect car for me. I love the styling, and colour. ( I chose bronze/mist). I also feel that North Americans are not supporting our country and fellow citizens (workers of General Motors) by not buying from the original car makers of our country. Performance is all that I could want or expect. I drive the highways quite a lot and when I need the power and pick up to pass on a two lane highway it is always there. Buick is the car for this all-Canadian gal! So far, it has been all that was promised.

Love my Buick

We have had many Buick vehicles and they are one fine car. Do not require a lot of maintance. Have been told that they ride nicer than a Cadillac. Will keep buying Buicks every time.

I was used to driving a much bigger and heavier car. The Buick Century turned out to be a great surprise. One of the most comfortable and easy to handle car that I have ever owned. I have owned many many cars over the years.

The drive is a great improvement over my old Buick Century. Everything works fine. I still have not figured out how the radio works. The only problem is the reflection off of the dash board onto the front window.

I like the car in general. I most specifically do not like the lights- on/lights-off games, however. I am not senile. I want to turn the headlights on when I want them on, and off when I want them off. I want the interior lights on if and only if I open a door, or if I turn them on. At least, let these features be programmable.

Lots of car for the price bought 03/05

Well, I had reserved a compact car to drive to Yellowstone from Saltlake city, but they ran out and gave me this Buick to my big innitial disappointment. I wanted a small gas efficient car for my trip. My best friend got a Ford Focus at the same time. Well, we took out the cars and hit the road at night, inside the Buick looked almost exactly like my Dad's old 1984 Cutlas Supreme. The ride was cushy, very quiet and the car felt somewhat underpowered. We drove 150 miles, and the next morning we pulled up to a gas station. To my utter surprise, the Century needed 2 dollars less than the Focus to refill the tank.

Car is too light, and suspension system is poor, resulting in disappointing riding quality. The tires must be poor quality, because when taking curves on a road which is slightly crowned, the car feels as though it is about to roll over; instead of tires, perhaps design has poor weight distribution. It is necessary to slow down significantly to feel safe, and I don't mean slowing down from 70 to 55, but rather from 45 to 30 for example.

I owned a 2001 Suturn L-200 prior to buying my Buick Century. I averaged close to 30 miles per gallon. I now have averaged 34 MPG with my V6 Buick and am extremely happy every time I pull into a Gas Station. The ride is very comfortable and the Buick handles extremely well. There is very little road or wind noise and it gets off the mark very well. The dual heat/air control is very much appreciated and posi-traction is helpful in slippery conditions. Leg room in front and back is much better than I have been used to.
