2005 Buick Century User Reviews
- No trim specified for this review
- reasonable good gas mileage. lot's of pep when needed.
- defective antilock brake sensor at 29,000km. repair cost over $600.00 for one wheel!
Although My Buick century is a 98 model there has been little change
mechanically or body style changes fromm 1997 to 2005. This saves
general motors (tooling costs) but has done nothing in improving any past defects or problems that these cars had.
At about 37,000 km. I had a bolt break on the suspension system.
I went to the dealer and they would not repair it at the dealers expense even though they had a recall on another year for the same thing.
I had to replace the starter, alternator. and water pump at about
60,000km. A little premature I think.
Also beware the 3.1 litre engine after about 30,000 km. in some models developes an engine noise when first started up cold.
I've been told by a mechanic that it is a piston problem. The noise doe's dissapate after a few minutes running and will probably not cause a major problems.
I am now inclined to buy a Toyota Camry. It is competitvely priced with the buick century and may well be a more reliable car!
