2000 Buick Century Problems
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.

2000 Buick Century Recalls
The air bag warning label on the sun visors does not comply with required size and content guidelines. GM mailed customers a new label to install on their visors.
The side air bag inflator may separate from the air bag module during deployment. This may cause reduced protection and injury to occupants. Dealers will replace the side impact air bag module.
The seat belt buckles may not have been properly heat-treated during the manufacturing process. This may cause the buckles not to function correctly during a collision, which may cause injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckles.
2000 Buick Century Reviews
GM could not GIVE me one of their cars ever; have 2000 Buick with approx. 130,000 miles; Transmission went out twice at cost of $3500; all window motors went out twice; Heater/Ac blower switch went out twice at cost of $700 each time; electrical problems brake lights; my dash cluster doesn't light up; this car should have been re-called. Next time, I'll buy foreign like Toyota.
I have over 315,000 miles on the original engine, and it seems to keep going strong. I have noticed just in the past couple weeks its been taking a little longer to start-up. I did have to have the exhaust manifold gasket changed cause it was leaking coolant in and out the engine. Two of the windows no longer roll up or down, the Check Oil light is forever on, as is the Low Coolant, and Service...
Got this car at 95,000 and now has 110,000 with no repairs since purchase. Really drives nice and with the exception of window problems has been a great car.
