Not bad for Buick
By jackrussel419 on


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


I have a 2001 Buick Century and havent had too many problems with it. At about 140,000 miles i got that normal thing with buicks where the anitfreeze mixes with the oil and that was about a $900 fix but other than that that is the biggest issue ive had only other things are the drivers side window motor had to be replaced, had to get a new o2 sensor and brakes but thats just from the almost 200,000 miles that are on it, but definetly a reliable vehicle all year round.

@jackrussel419: Also, what is the "rev limiter"? and what does it take to turn it up? Thanks, Ted

@jackrussel419: I just bought a 2001 Buick Century. Could you please explain the "normal thing" w/ Buicks @ about 140,000 miles w/ the antifreeze mixing w/ the oil. I've never heard of this happening w/ any car for that matter. What is it exactly that happens? What are the signs to look out for? And the expensive $900 repair...is there no way around this much $$ to repair it, if it does happens? Finally do you know if this happens to all the Buick Centurys?? If you see my comment, I be grateful to get a response back from you as soon as you can. Thank You very much from a Concerned New Buick Cent. owner.

I like the initial review. If I buy a 130,000 mile Century today will I have the same success? I loved the Malibu I lost/
