A great car that is very reliable and safe


Occasional dying when not warmed up or sudden stops.

Very few cracks in the dash.

Fuel guage moves when turning or accelerating fast.

General Comments:

This car is my favorite of all cars I have seen, it is my pride and joy.

My 1975 Buick Century Custom is well upholstered with paisely interior and very large and comfortable seats.

The trunk size is humongous and can hold a lot.

The power steering is great and the suspension is very loose and gives you this somewhat floating effect when driving.

Acceleration is average, but only goes to a speed of 80-90 mph.

This car is the roomiest car I have ever been in with lots of extra space for your legs.

Barely to almost no damage if ever in an accident, it is built like that of a tank and is safe with a long front and back.

A top choice if you are the type that likes safety, luxury, and classics.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I got myself a 1975 Buick Century Custom Gran Sport with a 350. I think I got about 71,000 miles on it. It has some upholstery damage, (the driver's door panel vinyl is chipping off.) but it's old so what do you expect?

I love the thing, I'm looking at getting it sold, it's all primered. I nicknamed it the Gray Ghost.

My husband had a 1975 Buick Century that he just loved, but had to part with it. For his 50th birthday, I would love to get him one, because he has searched for his for the past 25 years. Can you help me out? if so, email information to: imagrandpa07@yahoo.com Thanks.
