Edmunds' Expert Review

Want an economical, value-packed non-descript sedan for Point A to Point B driving? The Century meets that need, adding just enough luxury to make it worthy of the name Buick.

vehicle overview

Back in 1997, a revamped Century hit the showrooms with a bigger, more ergonomic interior and roomier trunk, all wrapped in smooth, flowing sheetmetal that Buick stylists hoped would have a long shelf life. It appears they got their wish. Now four model-years old, today's Century has been growing in popularity each year, proving we shouldn't underestimate the market power of America's senior citizens, rental car companies or business-class road travelers.

The big news this year is the addition of a Special Edition to go along with the well-equipped Custom and the positively pampering Limited versions. According to Century brand manager Anthony Derhake, the Special Edition model was added after Buick figured that "the turn of the century is a great opportunity to celebrate Buick's Century." Marketing aside, the Special Edition wears a monochrome exterior with blacked-out trim and commemorative "2000" badging. Other features include cruise control, a six-way power driver's seat, and an AM/FM cassette player with steering wheel controls. Opt for leather and you'll also get uplevel mirrors, seating and audio.

All 2000-model-year Centurys benefit from a revised 3100 V6 that makes 175 horsepower, up 15 horsepower from 1999, and 195 foot-pounds of torque, or 10 more than last year's engine. The 3.1's new intake and exhaust manifolds not only provide more power, but also increase highway fuel economy by one mile per gallon, to 30 mpg. Century's four-speed automatic transmission has also been improved with electronic controls and a larger torque converter for smoother shifts. Inside, redesigned dual-zone climate controls are now standard on all models. Electronic dual-zone climate control, which replaces slide-and-knob controls with push buttons and LED and digital indicators, is standard in the upper-level Special Edition and optional on the Limited.

Century comes standard with such features as remote keyless entry, automatic power door locks, daytime running lamps with Twilight Sentinel (which automatically controls the headlamps based on lighting conditions), door courtesy lights, battery rundown protection, antilock brakes, traction control, a tire inflation monitor and GM's PASS-Key II theft-deterrent system. OnStar is optional.

Century stacks up well in the high-volume midsize sedan market, where it shows continued sales strength against its domestic rivals. A good safety record and solid build quality makes it an enduring favorite, while gaining ''top buy'' type acclaim from more than a few consumer publications and rating organizations along the way. With the highest customer loyalty rating in the segment, Century buyers seem prepared to stick with this Buick well into the next century.

2000 Highlights

Buick's midsize Century heads into the new millennium with a special-edition model commemorating the turn of the century and more horsepower in all three models from a revised 3.1-liter 3100 V6.

Absolutly love this car!!!!
mandapanda,05/20/2014
When I bought this car it had high millage (abt 200k). I it was one of the best cars I have ever owned! The low tire light would come on sometimes when tire was not really low; and, had a problem with the light switch. Never had the chance to find out exactly what caused it because my sister ended up driving it over a 20ft bank. The car was totaled; but, my sister came out of the wreck with only bruises and seat belt burn. Really miss my baby. Would recommend this to anyone; and, would love to own another some day!

PROS: -A cheap luxury car. Gets you from point A to B. -Smooth ride, good MPG. Low maintenance car. -Comfortable, roomy seating. Bang for your $. CONS: -Can take a while to get up to faster speeds. -Battery went out after 1 month. Windows went out also. Both minor problems, though. -Rims are ugly (Not a problem with the car). I bought this Buick in August for $5,000 from an elderly man in the desert, Palm Springs, California area. This car has close to 95,000 miles on it. Overall, it has been good to me, and after I get a new battery, I should be a happy owner for another 5 years. Very happy, so far.
Great Car
Richard,08/18/2008
I bought the car with 56,000 miles in 2005. It's 2008 now and I've put over 70,000 more on it. Drove from Venice Beach to Cleveland, Ohio and back flawlessly 4 times now have never broke down and only had to put minimal wear and tear mantainence like brakes and tires. After 3 years and 70,000 miles never had any break downs or mechanical failures. This car was made in Canada so it was built to higher standards. I only payed $7000 for it and have already gotten my money's worth. Excellent in the snow especially with the flawless ABS and traction control. If you're looking for a reliable car with great gas mileage, 30 mpg, look for a Century built in Canada not Mexico
Good car but expect problems
linnylovescars,08/16/2012
I am 21 years old and my Buick Century is the first car that I've ever owned. I inherited from my dad, and it's been on the road for over a year now. We bought it in 2002, when it was retiring from being a rental car with 14,000 miles. It's been in the family since then and so have 2 other Buick Century's. In recent years, the Buick had been sitting in the yard for over 3 years. That was not good!. When first having the car in my possession, all the sparkplugs stopped working when I was in the middle of the city. Everytime I drive the engine does not want to speed enough, or does not speed up at It's a good car, although I wish it had a more modern look.

Should I lease or buy a 2000 Buick Century?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
