2004 Buick Century - Price Quote

Visit Buick for more information on the Buick Century.

Buick's lowest priced car is back with three custom packages that give buyers the flexibility to choose how they outfit their Century. The slightly reserved 2004 Buick Century shares its basic platform with the Buick Regal, which has a little more flair for younger customers.

The 2004 Buick Century continues to focus on safety and security. It has new 4-wheel disc brakes and an impact-protective, energy-absorbing foam-backed interior trim on the pillars and roof rails, which exceeds federal safety requirements.

Available Models
The 2004 Buick Century is offered in one base model, with three custom packages available: Standard, Custom and Limited.

Interior Features
The 2004 Buick Century is a roomy four-door sedan, capable of seating a maximum of six passengers. It has good head and legroom in all seating positions, meaning even full-size adults won't be squashed on the inside.

The Standard Package with the 2004 Buick Century includes such items as a front split bench seat, a remote decklid release, an audio system with CD player, an air filtration system, power windows, cloth upholstery and remote keyless entry. The Custom Package adds a 6-way power driver seat, cruise control, deluxe illuminated visor vanity mirrors and color-keyed floor mats.

At the top of the heap is the luxurious Limited Package. It decks out the interior with leather seating surfaces, steering wheel-mounted radio controls and more.

Exterior Features
The Limited Package also includes 15-inch chrome plated wheel covers. The 2004 Buick Century is offered in two new exterior colors: Cashmere Metallic and Steelmist Metallic.

Powering the 2004 Buick Century is a 3.1-liter V6 engine with the following specs: 175 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 195 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. It is mated to a proven 4-speed automatic transmission, resulting in fuel ratings of 20 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway.

Buick's Convenience Plus package of features returns, giving the Century a number of handy items. These include delayed entry and exit lighting, theater dimming, flash-to-pass control, battery rundown protection, lockout protection, delayed locking, an auxiliary power outlet and daytime running lamps.

Safety and Security
Four-wheel disc brakes can be replaced with optional 4-wheel antilock disc brakes. In addition to its sturdy, solid construction, the Century has the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system for young passengers. LATCH uses six metal hooks to help adults easily and safely attach child safety seats. Dual front airbags are also standard, and a driver's side-impact airbag is available with leather-appointed seating surfaces
