2002 Buick Century Custom 3.1 Litre from North America
The Buick Century is one of the best cars ever made. I love it!
Needed a front wheel bearing at 73,000 miles.
This is my third Century and they've gotten better as the years went by.
Great ride, roomy, comfortable, economical, reliable.
I keep up with the regular maintenance (oil changes, tire rotations, transmission fluid flushed and filled every 20,000 miles, coolant flushed and filled once a year.) My Century has only been worked on by the Buick dealer where I bought it, and which sold the car new originally.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Here's a follow up on my Buick Century as I am the original poster of this review.
Currently, my Century has 112,089 miles on it. Since the writing of the original comment, the car received a new water pump at 91,000 miles and I needed tie rod ends when I took it in for an oil change last week.
I have to say that it was stricken with the "intake manifold virus" in December 2009. But I had it repaired, getting a complete tune-up in the process.
I would say that's pretty good for a car with 112,000 miles on it. It runs terrific, still getting 30+ miles on the highway, and is just extremely reliable.
I still have it serviced only at the Buick dealer where I bought it and I think that's part of the reason why it has remained so reliable. I am still very happy with this car and plan to keep it for at least another year.
