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.

2001 Buick century. If I didn't have wiring issues Would like to drive car.

2001 Buick Century Limited

I have had numerous wiring problems. With ignition and transmission/speed sensor. When you change out ignition switch it will last a few weeks then you have to replace it again. The same goes for the transmission/speed sensor. That will do the same and work for a few weeks, not let you go more than 35 mph then eventually stop all together. I also prefer driving a truck.

Vehicle is fair, nice seats.

2001 Buick Century Limited

Paint chipping, o2 sensor going off with no leaks confirmed by garage Mechanic, sometimes skips into gear, I am short and I can't sit up high enough to see over steering wheel. Seats are comfortable, and sound of radio is good. Electric seat only in driver side, power windows, though tend to break due to grounding.
