2000 Buick Century Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Buick marks the end of this century with a special edition of its own Century, a front-wheel-drive sedan. All models have more power this year thanks to improvements to the standard V-6 engine, and versions with leather upholstery gain a seat-mounted side-impact airbag for the driver.

Century is built from the same design as the Buick Regal but assumes a more conservative stance aimed at an older audience.

Exterior
Though Century’s styling is similar to the Regal’s, a different grille, rear-end features, trim and wheels give it a unique appearance at first glance. Both ride a 109-inch wheelbase and come in four-door body styles.

The Century 2000 special edition wears a blacked-out grille, body-color fascias and side moldings, and machined aluminum wheels to set it apart from the Custom and Limited models.

Interior
Only bench seats separate the six-passenger Century from the sportier Regal, which has front bucket seats. All models come with a three-place front bench seat featuring a folding, center storage armrest. Leather upholstery is standard on the Limited and optional on the Century 2000 special edition.

Under the Hood
Horsepower on the standard 3.1-liter V-6 jumps from 160 to 175 from internal changes, new intake and exhaust manifolds and revised electronic controls. The EPA’s fuel economy estimate for highway driving increases 1 mpg to 30; the city estimate is unchanged at 20.

Safety
In addition to the federally required dual front airbags,...

My first car and my first tow

by buickowner2019 from Columbus, OH on October 8, 2019

I currently own the 2000 Buick Century, and I’m anxious to get rid of it. While this car was my best first car, it’s old and has 300,000 miles on it. I think it’s time to give old Ethel up and look ... Read full review

Great Car for going to and from work

by Mac from Glassboro, NJ on April 24, 2018

I like the care. Joe at Broadway was great in getting me into the car in a couple of hours. No pressure to buy, he had the right care on the lot for what I needed. Clean, low mileage and runs great. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
