Good, Reliable Car

The car has never stalled, and has started up on it's first try every time. Roomy seating, and plenty of trunk space. The handling is not great because the car is so wide, but it has 175hp and a V6, so it drives well.

Adequate car, no more, no less

by from Boston on March 4, 2008

This car isn't bad, but it isn't good either. It corners terribly and the fit and finish is poor, but it rides very well and holds 5 adults and the trunk is cavernous,

Tranny Problems

Purchased this car used with only 40K miles on it. It was a one owner trade in with some body damage. Had it checked out and all seemed good but the tranny began to "bump" into the gears rather hard about 2 weeks after purchase. Found out the tranny is almost shot after 40K SOFT miles. After researching further discoverd that GM vehicles and Buicks in particularl had major issues with the tranny between the 2000 - 2004 models.

we now have 178,000 miles, replaced brakes serpintine belt tires and thats it this was our 3 buick the 3800 engie is tops, ours is the 3,1 which has enough power for what we need, purr like a panther, 34 mpg on highway, we some times use it for a rural mail route vehicle, We have a Honda CRV for full time mail route , honda are the best for this, Buicks are one tough vehicle, The traction control is great for Indiana Snow,

Good car

by from Illinois on March 6, 2010

Bought this car for a steal. Runs great looks good handles well. I like the features and it does well with the crash report as well. The trunk is HUGE. So if you need the room there it has plenty.

Best Car I've Ever Owned

by from West Virginia Hills on February 8, 2011

I inherited a used 1990 white Buick Century 4-door sedan which had belonged to my mother and, before her, my great-aunt. In 2006 I traded it in - for a used 2000 white Buick Century 4-door sedan. This car is a dream to drive! Leather seats, automatic door locks, radio controls in steering wheel, seats with lumbar support, fantastic surround-sound music system, plus the famous "Buick ride" all combine for a pleasurable trip, whether tooling around town or heading to the highway for weekend getaways. This car, like the last one, starts first-time-every-time, even in zero-degree weather! It has plenty of head and leg room for backseat passengers, and the front seats come all the way out to the back of our knees (unlike the foreign cars which hit us about mid-thigh). Road noise is minimal and it handles beautifully in all kinds of weather - plows through snow like a Sherman tank. Couldn't be happier!

Smooth ride until you hit transmission problems

by from Seattle WA on April 21, 2010

10 years and 58000 miles in the transmission is apparently toast and I am being quoted at least three-thousand to replace it. Which is more than I paid for the car itself second hand 2 years and 10000 miles ago. Too bad I just bought new tires. A little research will show you this car and certain others from the same period 2000-2002 or so are very well known for their transmission troubles, which will show up anywhere between 30,000 and 80,000 miles.

Of all GM cars, this one is the best

by from Chicago, IL on March 26, 2009

The steering is smooth and the car can seat 6 people, 3 in front and 3 in back. Calculated mileage is 16.6 street miles/gallon and 14.7 highway miles/gallon. Not good, but the car has never broken down - it's already at 150,000 miles and I've only changed the battery once, brakes twice, and had oil changes and air filter replacements done on a regular basis. The exterior is a little bland. Trunk space is astounding - it fit a weeks worth of groceries with room to spare! My one complaint is that there is a seperate key for the ignition, front doors, and trunk as a "safety measure," according to GM.
