Nice Car by Ducatti20 @Dallas, TX on 04/10/2003. Trim: 1998 Buick Century Custom, Owned 3 years.
Pros: What a nice car. Great ride, great mileage (~29-34 Highway). Mine has no options, and yet is as loaded as some cars with everything. Excellent car for young family, seats are easy to clean and you don't have to drive a minivan. Easy to perform own maintenence.
Cons: Tape deck sucks. MP3 player will definately be going in there. No way to open trunk from inside unless you use keyless entry. Driver side window has plastic studs that break fairly easily, $400 bucks to replace new.
Overall review: Good car, quiet and efficient

Solid dependable family car.... by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/30/2004. Trim: 1998 Buick Century Limited, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Nice roomy car...not as peppy as our old Skylark but more dependable. For all of this my wife and I love this car and feel safe driving in it. We will only buy another buick.
Cons: poor paint job air conditioner and controls... sloppy handling Had to do some body work on it this year but only found surface rust...paint job is poor quality. Large flakes were falling off but the metal underneath is sound. Transmission is starting to act funny....it can't make up it's mind at 60 mph to shift up or down. There's a rattle in the front sounds like the maniford heat shields are loose. Air conditioner packed it in last summer...cheapest repair estimate is $1,100 (CAN) to fix that. The brakes pads are too soft and leave black dust on the hub caps but she'll brake on a dime with the ABS brakes.
Overall review: Like the car.

The best car for the money by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/25/2003. Trim: 1998 Buick Century Custom, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The gas mileage is terrific. We have a 6-cyl and get 25-27 MPG in the city and 30+ on the highway.
Cons: The driver and front passenger seat belts are uncomfortable in any of the adjustable positions.
Overall review: This is our second Buick, and it is unlikely that we would ever buy anything other than a Buick in the future. Prior to the expiration of the warrenty we had nearly zero annual repair expense, and following the warrenty period we have averaged less than $600 per year including the scheduled maintenance costs.
