one of the best I have ever owned
Pros: 4 way seats and rear leg room.....great
Cons: Problem with front light seals.Great gas mileage ( over 30 MPG highway) @ 60 mph .Comfort max . Well built .I worked for Ford Mtr for 25 yrs.and I compare this vechile equally with the Lin/Merc line.Only problem I experienced were the original BF Goodrich tires (too much road noise) I changed them.
NICE FAMILY CAR
Pros: SMOOTH RIDE
Cons: SLOW GETTING 0 TO 60RIDES COMFORTABLY, NICE ROOM, NOT OVERLY RESPONSIVE, LOOKS GOOD.
Pros: power seats
Cons: computerizedwould think my car is very dependable
Pros: It's the perfect size for us to travel. Very comfortable.
Cons: small console
Advice: Change the oil every 3000 miles. You'll love this car!We just traded our 2003 Buick Century for a 2005. We LOVED the 2003 and wanted another one exactly like it. Sorry this is the last year for this model. We were looking forward to trading in 2008 for another one. Guess we'll have to look for another favorite Buick.
Pros: All of it.
Advice: Buy it and you will not regret it.For a mid-size car, this is the best car for your money. I love the stereo system. The engine is just perfect. You can hardly hear it running. It purrs and the ride is so smooth. It feels like you are flying on air. I have not seen so much features of a car for this price. I have driven this to Canada non-stop and I never felt tired.
Pros: The cloth, electric-adjust bench seats. OnStar
Cons: Center console too small.
Advice: If you can find one this last year, buy it.I did extensive test driving of a number of cars, and both the 05 Century and LaCrosse. Both were great cars - lots of extras and comfort features of a larger car - however, there is just something about the ride of the Century; too bad this is the last manufacture year. Acceleration is smooth, responsive, and quiet - you never feel a shift change. Most quiet, comfortable, solid mid-size on the market. Well put together; makes you feel safe. Although hard to find, get an 05 Century with the total 'package' of extras for the complete feel of luxury and safety (comparible to the LaCrosse). As they say, 'Wouldn't you rather have a Buick?' Yes, I would!!
Pros: the ride
Cons: the hub caps
Advice: don't be a fool buy one now!this car is great!!! this is my first buick and i must say it's like riding on air i feel very safe in this car and when you start it up it's so quite some people may say it's a old man car but their wrong all i got to say is test drive one and i promise you will buy one.
