  • The Grand Prix ... I just sold my 1994 Grand Prix with well over 100k miles and it has been a FANTASTIC car.

  • The Buick...the blue book is better on it...unless the Pontiac has more features.

  • Well a quick Kelly blue book search says the Century is overpriced (at least for my area) in excellent its only worth $4,090.

    The grand prix would be more in line price wise.

    We have owned 2 grand prix the first one was totalled by a friend and we went out and bought another one. So that would be my pick.

  • Buick for the less miles, I feel I could use it longer - not many cars last over 170k miles anymore

  • BUICK CENTURY!!! I Had an 89 Buick park avenue that lasted me FOREVER! I ended up having like 200,000 miles on it and only having to do minor repairs. I also had a Pontiac and it put me through heck! Buicks are said to be the poor mans Cadillac. Good luck!
