2001 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Acquired at 1 year old and 9K miles on it. Ride quality, steering, power, and comfort have all been more than adequate and often pleasurable. Nice base features, all around a nice car. Been in twice for warranty work - rear tail light assembly and right rear power window motor. Although inconvenient, the servicing dealership was superb in every way. I am somewhat nervous as my warranty expiration is approaching. So Far - So good. No significant complaints. But I dont have any experience with these cars at 3 years plus.

Best Features

Size. It is a real car, not one of those dinky tin cans rattling down the highways like angry kitchen appliances. I have driven and owned almost every category of car. And this is a car you can live with everyday. Good size back seat, nice size doors for easy entry and exit

Worst Features

60/40 split rear seat should be standard on a car of this stature. Mine doesnt have it. No gas cap lock. Fit and finish mediocre Plasticy dash, shifter, and controls. Transmission gives slight buck when completely off the gas and then back on. Brakes feel spongey at times.
