Great all around car

by Southern Driver from Atlanta, GA on Tue Jun 28 2011

I was looking for a very dependable, 4 Door, V-6, Automatic, with a bench seat and the Buick Century provided all of that and more. The car handles well, gives a good ride and is above average on gas mileage. I was very pleased.

Most reliable and comfortable car I've ever owned.

by incogRiot from Phoenix, Arizona on Fri Jun 16 2017

This car was very reliable and comfortable to drive. I've never owned a more smooth ride in my life. Like floating on clouds everywhere you drove. Gas mileage was good for a V6 engine. Never had any engine or transmission trouble and come to think of it never had a single issue with this car even without keeping up on normal maintenance like changing brakes, oil, timing belt never done at recommended intervals and she still purred the entire time I owned it. This car was a gem in the Buick line of 90's cars. Owned it from 1995 to 2017, 22 years and it still drove as good as the day I got it, it was sad to let it go. It's the last car I'll ever own or drive, I only sold it recently because I retired and moved to a location where cars are no longer needed.

I've been very pleased with this car

by Steve from Midcoast Maine on Sat Nov 25 2006

This is a grandma's car, and in my case, it really is: I bought this from my Grandma! That said, I couldn't be happier with this car. It gets decent gas mileage and it handles the road quite nicely. The ride is pleasant, and the sound system is top notch. The only thing I don't like about it is the front end styling. No matter, it's been a very dependable car. What more can you ask?

Very Underappreciated Car

by Evil Monkey from Minneapolis,MN on Mon Dec 10 2007

After driving a Buick Regal & switching over to this Century, I long for that 3.8 L. as opposed to the 3.1. That being said, the 3.1 is legendary for reliability. The styling is very dated inside & out. The gas pedal is the worst design in automotive history!! It tends to stick at the top. The car does nothing exceptional but competently. Though it's greatest attribute is reliabilty. This is very fine transportation that that serves very very well. I may even get another one when this one finally gives up the ghost.

Most reliable car i have ever owned.

by Bud Micmillen from McLoud on Thu Sep 14 2017

A reliable appliance

by Dan from Indiana on Sat Aug 04 2007

I have had this car for nearly two years and have never been excited to drive it. It has worked as advertised and never caused me any problems. I have never had to pay for repairs with this car. However, it has flaws. I have the V-6 engine, yet I still strain to keep up with traffic at times. You must plan highway passes carefully. Gas mileage, however, is good for a car this size, especially on the highway. The car actually grips the road better than the suspension will allow you to push it, which can be frustrating. The ride is smooth but it often feels like the car is wallowing down the road, kind of like you have placed a pillow between your seat and the car's seat. Speaking of the seats, they offer no lumber support whatsoever and have no real shape to them. The experience is no better in any other spot in the car, so watch out if you have back problems. The interior looks incredibly dated but it has held up well and offers a few useful features - map lights, a useful center storage console, plenty of space. The Century is a tired but competent design. Boy racers should look elsewhere as the car is in its element around 40 mph, but those who only want spacious, efficient, reliable transportation may want to take a second look.

Our Take on the 1995 Buick Century

THIS IS A city of old things, a place of tradition. It's the perfectsetting for a test drive of the Buick Century, America's most aptlynamed car.

From its body to its dashboard, the Century is a work of motorizedmoss -- so dated, so funky, it could be on display in a museum.

'Tis a wonder that Buick had the temerity to call the currentCentury a "1995 model." I mean, look around. What other 1995 car hassuch linear, boxy, uninspired lines? Step inside. That dashboard, withall of its angular weirdness, could fit into a scene in one of AnneRice's vampire novels.

But all is not lost. The car has some bright touches, such as thedashboard-mounted map light, illuminated interior door handles, brighterwarning lights... Read More
