2002 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


I would not recommend purchasing a Buick Century. I have had several major problems with this vehicle (which I purchased new in 2002. When the car was two years old, the underside (rocker panel and near wheel wells) had damage (i.e. rust/ paint has come off- I believe that this is as result of a design flaw. I have had this fixed once when the car was under warranty, but now it needs to be done again (15 months later). I had to replace the battery at approx. 25K miles and had to replace the head gasket (at a cost of $1300) at 56K miles. Now, my air conditioning is no longer working. I feel that this vehicle was a very poor value and I can't wait to trade it in.

Best Features

Comfortable and roomy.

Worst Features

Fix the rocker panel and wheel well problems and mechanical deficiencies. In my opinion, not a well made vehicle.
