Snapshot:

If this was the turn of the century, we might be raving about the Century. But the 2004 Buick Century is due for a complete overhaul and will get one soon. Not a bad car, it appeals mostly to folks who like old-fashioned bench seats and the ability to seat six adults.

How Much?:

Price for a 2004 Buick Century in the US is $22,180 and the options are few as the Century comes well-equipped.

The Inside Story:

Seats five with the front bucket seats or six if ordered with a bench up front. The interior is typical Buick luxury and comes with keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, programmable power door locks, CD player. Upgrades include leather seats and steering wheel radio controls.

Under the Hood:

Engines: The base engine and only engine is a pushrod V-6 producing 175 hp plus a substantial amount of torque. You'll enjoy the acceleration but run out of steam at the top end. Hey... you wouldn't be buying a Buick if Autobahn running is your dream!

Transmissions:

There is only one transmission in the 2004 Buick Century, a 4-speed automatic. Most buyers won't notice, which is, of course, the objective.

Warranty:

3 years/36,000 miles bumper-to-bumper. 3 years/36,000 miles powertrain.

Should You Buy a 2004 Buick Century?:

Buick has developed a reputation as America's best-built automobiles. The 2004 Buick Century is affordable, while offering the roominess and near-luxury touches that Buick buyers expect. Though aimed at a middle-age crowd, the Century can be ordered with alloy wheels, ABS, leather and enough options to make any age group pay attention. Buy a Century if you plan on owning it for a very long time.
