OUR TEN-YEAR ODYSSEY SEARCHING FOR A DAILY DRIVER, part 3

1994 BUICK CENTURY

After a '91 Honda Accord and '82 Buick Skylark I finally found what I was looking for. It was a '94 Buick Century (below right) with the robust and economical 3.8L V6 engine. Although I prefer rear-wheel drive vehicles, we had previously owned a '91 (below left) and were very pleased with it.

We were happy with this car too, but only drove it about 5,000 miles before selling it. See why in the photos below!

1995 BUICK CENTURY

This 1995 Buick Century had only 72,000 miles on it and, as you can see, it was a beauty!
I sold the '94 for we paid and bought this one.





There are stainless wind deflectors over the windows






The Buick emblem on the grille is from a Regal and can be easily removed, but I liked it.




This car had the attractive sport rims...


...and an impeccable burgundy velor interior!










I bought rubber floor mats for the car, but the original mats were like new!






We put about 15,000 miles on it in 16 months and it served us faithfully without a complaint. In early August, 2013, the car needed shocks, struts and alignment. The ABS warning light stayed on and the AC quit cooling. I decided to sell the car and look for a rear wheel drive vehicle.

I sold the Century for $1,200 "as is" and bought a 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis for $1,400.
