If you have the 3.3 engine then the answer is "NO". They do not have a history of blowing head gaskets. The other person probly had all different motorsI have a 98 Buick century (blown head gasket). My father in law has a 94 Buick century (blown head gasket). mother in law has 96 Pontiac grand prix ( has the same 3.1 liter engine as the Buick century) and guess what (blown head gasket). that's just my family. Very Very poor design by gm if you ask me.
