Nice price or no dice 1995 Buick Century

Today’s Seller Nice price or no dice Buick showcases the car’s attractive appearance, but warns that it “shuts off randomly but will restart.” Let’s see if we can deduce the problem and decide if it’s worth the asking price.

In case you lost it:

The 1992 Toyota 4Runner we saw yesterday there was a fancy camper at the top, and attached to it was a large porch that made it look like the final form of the monster from the movie Are not. That, coupled with the remarkably clean presentation, greatly aided the seller’s $15,949 asking price.

Unfortunately for the seller, it doesn’t seem to support it far enough as all it manages is losing 66% No Dice despite the truck’s unique nature.

At one time, cars like today Real Estate Buick Century 1995 not all that unique. Honestly, they’re as popular on American roads as Bots Dots. That’s because General Motors has provided the A-body platform on which these cars are based almost all of its parts (save for Cadillac and GMC), and has done so for nearly 15 years.

This blue wagon is nearing the end of that run and therefore has plenty of updates compared to when the model was first introduced in 1982. Fortunately, it still has many of the attributes of old school, things like plush, comfortable seats, ashtrays and, best of all, eight-person seat belts with three rows of seats. Unlike modern three-row vehicles, the A-body wagons rotate the rearmost seats to require access via the rear hatch, but provide more legroom and an easier way to fold the seats down. when not in use.

The rest of the interior is spacious, featuring wide seats wrapped in sturdy fabric and a wrinkle-free dashboard. This is a car of the transitional period with a driver’s airbag, and comes with door-mounted seat belts that can be re-fastened while the driver and front passenger slither in and out beneath them. In addition, they can be used as traditional seat belts. The considerable flat column and floor displacement allows the middle passenger (preferably one with proper hygiene) to squeeze between the driver and that pilot. The middle row can also accommodate three people with a bit more comfort. The last seat can only seat two people.

Looking at the photos in the ad, it looks like this wagon has seen that ability bent. The second row has a booster seat that is evident in one photo and has a casket box on the roof to provide luggage storage that all occupied rows will eat up. Although used, the interior still looks intact.

The only glaring problem in the cabin seems to be that the horn buttons on the airbag-equipped steering wheel are gone. Other than that, it all looks intact and offers power windows and locks for lazy people like us.

The outside is also in good condition. The alloy wheels accentuate the squarish look, and while the tinted window awnings may look a bit silly, I bet they come in very handy in inclement weather.

There are only 135,000 miles on the clock, made possible by the 3.1-liter EFI V6 engine and four-speed automatic transmission. In the Century, that powertrain is good for 160 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque powering the front wheels. Well, in this particular Century, it’s good to have the occasional glitch. According to the seller, the car “randomly shuts down” but they say it’s okay because it will restart.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds unsettling. What could that be? Making a problem with the ignition switch? An unstable crank position sensor? Who knows? The point is, it’s the kind of problem that can kill someone’s interest in cars. The only way to deal with a problem like a possible stalled car is to make sure the car is cheap enough to start making potential buyers feel the benefits outweigh the risks and roll the dice.
