2001 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
The car has had a catastrophic transmission failure at 33,000 miles. We had a 1997 Model that was totaled in a wreck with no problems during the time we owned it. We bought this one because of that reason, big mistake. There are problems with this 4T65E model transmission used in many GMC models. They include pressure problems internally, noise, and bearing failures. These failures are often on low mileage, well maintained vehicles. Buyes of used vehicles watch out.
Always considered a great all around value for basic features and reliability, until the major transmission problem.
