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


Review

My Problems started when car was only 6 months old. I have replaced the converter 5 times and had it in for more repairs than anyone should ever have to. I have taken it to repair places other than Buick and they do not know what is wrong. I have contacted GM on many occasions and they keep referring me back to the Buick Dealers mechanics who do not know what is wrong either. I have left the car for days and their mechanics have driven and used up my gas and still no solution. I am retired and have put 8000 dollars into this in repairs as they tell me first it need this and then something else the next time, I am at my wits end.


Best Features

I have owned Buicks for years, but if no solution I will own no more


Worst Features

The improvements I would suggest is that you take better care of families that have been long time buyers. I would also improve the Lumbar in the seat.

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


Review

Bought this car to take long trips across country & back. About to make the fourth long trip! Also use for commute each day. It's very comfortable, roomy, smooth on highways, safe in snow. Have replaced tires, brakes, from normal wear & tear. Light bulbs in headlamps & tail lamps seem to go out frequently compared to other cars we've had. Teenager needs a car & they will get the new one-I will keep driving the Buick!


Best Features

Comfort, room. Front bench can seat three when you have extra passengers. Smooth, quiet ride.


Worst Features

When rear window is down but not front window, it makes a horrible, ear splitting roar for the driver! Can be fixed by opening front windows a little. Light bulbs need to be replaced frequently.

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


Review

Purchased used in 2003 with 38K. Previous life was a rental. Now with over 150K all types of things have gone wrong in the past 12 months. Intake manifold leaking, cruise control out & gas gauge undependable. However I have not had any brake, exhaust, or tranny problems, and the car always started! No rust on body either. Time to trade in or give to charity, but it was a very good investment.


Best Features

Bench seating, body styling, ABS, roomy rear seating, trunk space, tight steering, highway gas mileage 30.


Worst Features

Nothing major

Review

The car is very dependable. I've had no problems with it. The odometer is at 165,000. Handles well in winter weather--starts easily during those sub-zero mornings.


Best Features

Air works well. The car cools down easily during those hot & humid 90+ degree days in the summer.


Worst Features

Improvements are being made with the next generation of Buicks. For the era this car was designed well overall.
