1989 Buick Century Custom 3.3L V6 from North America
A great car for a good bargain
Our Century was from Florida so the A.C. Compressor got a lot of use, it made an awful humming noise, it was later fixed with a new compressor.
The 3.3L V6 is very good at acceleration, but, is not the most smooth running engine.
The inside is comfy, but plush seats are definitly the way to go.
The Exterior has smooth lines unlike the 82-88 models, it is not too modern, but not too old looking.
The spoked wheel covers are the way to go, they can go through anything without any damage, they are also very beautiful with a classic-like effect, they go wonderful with the car.
In 1989 when the design changed they cut down on the amount of chrome they put on the car, which makes the car look more modern However. The "classy" look was the one for me.
The chrome lessened even more throughout the years.
Except for a few minor interior and exterior changes, they were pretty much the same from 89-96.
The car is easy to maintain and with 33 m.p.g. that is pretty impressive for the size of the car, all in all the Buick Century is wonderful, I love it and they are definitly worth buying.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
