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.

Buick Century Custom is a simply amazing vehicle

2001 Buick Century Custom

The problems with my vehicle is that the struts are going out in the front and back, and the wiring for the headlight are shot.. I bought the car like this, but I could imagine that it was a beauty to drive when it was in top condition. The performance is great, it's great on gas, it's very spacious and the trunk has so much room. I completely rely on this car, besides a few things that need to be fixed it's simply amazing

Sturdy family car, reliable, some electronic glitches

2001 Buick Century Custom

My vehicle has been reliable for many years. It has been wonderful for long road trips to family. Major issues have been related to aged electronics such as power window features needing replacement and dashboard lighting malfunctioning. There have been no issues with the body frame despite a few collisions. It's a sturdy vehicle that I feel safe driving myself and family in.

Buick- comfortable, reliable and dependable.

2001 Buick Century Custom

This is my third Buick. After my first, it's all I want. They are reliable, dependable and very comfortable. Even though they're spacious they still get good mileage. My current car is 18 years old. There are a few dings and dents, but I do not care. I drive all over the country and I have hardly had any problems. The ones I have had are normal for a car this old.

The Buick :Reliable but ugly

2001 Buick Century Custom

My car is a reliable car. It doesn't show the odometer so I do not know how many miles I have. The car smells in the inside because of the upholstery. It hums loudly when accelerating but I believe that's do to the breaks. The tires are bald on the front but still has stopping power all around it's reliable, just ugly.

Do I want a Buick Century?

2001 Buick Century Custom

The 2001 Buick Century is spacious and comfortable inside and has many amenities such as a 6 disc DVD player and a tape player which I typically use to connect to my phone. It also has an ashtray which is cool cause I smoke. It has a large trunk and is mostly reliable except a hole in my brake line

Long lasting car with minor electrical problems.

2001 Buick Century Custom

Good running, long lasting car. The only thing I would say that is poor is the electrical in the car. The window control buttons stop and start working. Sometimes the headlights even flicker. I was told that it could be the fuses. Other than the minor electric problems. The car is a great runner.

- Serenity S

my vehicle isn't the best but it works would be better if fixed up

2001 Buick Century Custom

my advice to car buyers would be to always make sure you know what's wrong with it before purchasing because sometimes it you may end up putting more into than anything. Also make sure you always check your brake fluid, oil and gas frequently as that's important for cars as well as gas mileage!

My granny mobile keep a giraffe in your window.

2001 Buick Century Custom

My Buick has been a very reliable car with very few issues. It has gotten very good gas mileage and I haven't had to pay much at all for it is upkeep. The most problems I have had is with the windshield wiper blade mechanism wearing out. Other than that, I have been very satisfied with my car.

Buick Century Custom Review

2001 Buick Century Custom

My Buick Century Custom is an extremely comfortable car that is very reliable after about 2 years I have had no problems with it at all. It may not look cosmetically pleasing due to it being an older car but it's reliability is great and I think it would make great for someone's first car!

- Gerardo C

There is no interesting details about my car, it is old.

2001 Buick Century Custom

I bought it almost a year ago. I have fixed the whole front interior of the car. Needs 2 new tires, the back right has a slow leak. The speakers are all blown, so you'll need a new set. It has a dent on the front left side from me hitting a deer. It's not running at the moment.

- Breanna O

My review of the 2001 Buick century.

2001 Buick Century Custom

There is nothing mechanically wrong but the back windows do not roll down and there is missing pieces of the rocker panel at the bottom on both sides. It is a reliable vehicle for us and we like it so that is about all I have to say about the Buick century that we have.

- Roy C

My vehicle is a white 2001 Custom Buick Century.

2001 Buick Century Custom

I love the reliability and performance that Buick vehicles have to offer and even the features for an older car are nice. However, the previous owner did not take very good care of the vehicle so I am having to fix problems such as leaks that could cause other issues
