    Phil, great cars....if you can manage to get it for 9K, you would be stealing it.

    I have a 2001 Buick Century with 95K miles I'm happy with. Roomy car that gets 29 mpg on a combination of 4 and 2 lane country highway driving. This model was discontinued after 2005.

    "Extra clean" WHOLESALE money in the Black Book is $9,175 plus $100 for aluminum wheels, $250 for chrome wheels, $75 for cruise control and $200 for leather. At $11,900 RETAIL, you would be paying a fair price and given the vehicle's low mileage and that fact that you know how it was cared for, it might be a good price.

    They are good, sturdy low-frills cars. The only common failure I can think of is intake manifold gasket failures but they normally don't occur until 80,000 miles or so.

    Yeah, I think 9,000 is a fair to generous price given the market right now on full size GM's. I rented a Buick Century from a rental agency in 05 or 06, and I still remember how smooth the ride was.

    I have a 2002 model. Excellant transportation gets about 29-30 mpg, which for the room you get compares to the current higher mileage models.
