What I like about the Buick Century is the luxurious, roomy interior, the leather seats, and the v8 power of the engine. Though it is old, it is the strongest car I have ever owned. What I dislike about it (apart from the age) is the amount of gas it goes through, and the location of the emergency brake.
Story
This car did well driving through canyons that led to the beach.
Pros
My favorite features of the car are the v8 engine, the roomy interior, and the sound system that came originally with the car.
Cons
The top negative things about this vehicle are the amount of gas it goes through per week, the way it overheats in hot weather, and the location of the emergency brake.

I could not believe how little I felt while driving the car. It had the luxury and build of a modern day car. It doesn't hurt that its a big-body style Sedan, so I always feel like I am safe in my car. I also loved the trunk space, and how easy it's been to maintain it. I wouldn't have ever thought this car... (more)
