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


We Bought this car because of a previous good experience with a 1997 model. This car is a disaster. This car belongs to a grandma that has it serviced regularly at her local Firestone.THis car rarely get up over 45 mph, It drives to the local stores and back. It had a Catastrophic Transmission failure at 33,000 miles costing 2,500 dollars. The cruise control never worked. too many rattles in the dash board and instrument panel to list. And no at 38,000 miles leaking head / manifold gaskets losing coolant with no warning lights going of due to low coolant level. The low washer fluid light works though!

Best Features

The concept. Exactly what we needed in theory. Style not cutting edge but happily I trade off trendy design features for solid reliability such as starting..going and stopping. It starts and stops it's the going that has the problems.

Worst Features

Get out of the car making business.Yes you saved a few cents per unit on gasket material and made your millions as CEO. Someone deserves to be horsewhipped for putting loyal Buick owners into these "vehicles."
