The quality of the car outweighs it is appearance.

2001 Buick Century Custom

Very reliable and comfortable. It is not stylish, but it was cheap and has only needed minor repairs. Regular oil changes, new brakes, new tires, new tail lights, new side view mirror. Both front windows stopped going up and down so those belts had to be replaced. A couple of the speakers are starting to go out, I fix this by using the fade dial to send the sound to the rear speakers. One issue I have encountered that cannot be fixed is the lights in the dash that indicate park, reverse, neutral, drive, etc is going out. Apparently, replacement bulbs are non existent and it is very costly to repair.

Nice car to ride in; had its fair share of problems if not taken care of.

2001 Buick Century

This car is quite old which entailed many hardships along the way. The windows would go down and not come back, the breaks not working as well as many other problems. The vehicle has been inspected many times and we could never seem to find an exact problem with the car. However, I think it was just not properly taken care of such as keeping up with brake fluid and regular oil changes. Even though the car had its fair share of problems due to the owner, it was very nice to ride in when taken care of.

The grandma car still has it!

2001 Buick Century Limited

The car drives fine, the air doesn't work well and does not hold a freon boost for long. The gas gauge does not work, it does not have enough storage and the cup holders are limited in size. The car is comfortable and has a spacious interior and trunk. The car automatically locks when the car is started which is convenient. There is a radio with tape and CD player which is good. Because of its age I am nervous taking it on long trips but it gets around town reliably.
