This is a very nice car, there is not much to complain about, i have not run into any major issue since i purchased the vehicle in 2008, Only one thing happen and that was the fuel pump went out and that was a easy fix cost me nothing out of pockets. True i have heard a lot of bad stories about this vehicle but i guess its all about how you take care of the car and get it serviced...Overall the car is very nice, I took it to miami last summer and the ride was great..Not a good chick mobile but with all the features i have added to it, I had a ball...

Most Dependable Car

Owned this car for 4 years, 194k miles with 5 year old battery, 2WD but survived the worst slow and Engine light on for the past 2 years, but this car still leads on the road. Drive 100miles everyday since 2009, mostly I-95 & 495 yet the engine sounds new and strong. Ignition is strong and reliable. Never broke down nor give any strange noise. All you need is oil change as needed and coolant. Check other fluids and your soldier is ready to fight.

Every one should have one. It's a great car.

by from Florida on October 25, 2007

I'm astounded with the reliability of this car. It just doesn't break. Driving south from north Georgia I got thirty one miles per gallon. Around Florida I get 29 mpg highway. It's not a very sexy car...
I'm astounded with the reliability of this car. It just doesn't break. Driving south from north Georgia I got thirty one miles per gallon. Around Florida I get 29 mpg highway. It's not a very sexy car but I've been 100% pleased with it otherwise. I even rack up my kayak on top and bike on back, with all camp gear loaded. It's like having an economical pickup that does everything but 4x4

Very comfortable, nice ride, lots of leg & headroom (I'm 6'5"), quiet, economical (easy 33 MPG on the highway), roomy, good-sized trunk, Limited version is nicely equipped. This is my 3rd Century/Regal, and every one of them has been reliable as an anvil. Century is not overly powerful, but it's more than adequate.

I purchased my new 2001 Century Buick and have driven it for 13 years - 172K kms. Changed the oil every 5000 miles, new tires, new battery, but aside from that it was very reliable and required no repairs. Before this one, I also had a Buick Century which I kept for 10 years. The only reason I buy a new vehicle is because I want to ... but I'm quite sure this vehicle would go on forever.

i bought this care about 5 years ago for my wife to drive back and forth to work every day. Very confortable ride. i'm from N.C. and we've taken this car of several trips. Now, it's our 19 year old son's car. We had our troubles, Anti Lock braking, all 4 motors in windows had to be replaced, interior light gone, manifold gasket replaced, brakes replaced and more, much more. In fact, everything that people have complained about, I've had. Probably would never buy another one. I rate this car a 3 overall
