2000 Buick Century

As the world gets set to start a new century, Buick decides to celebrate with a Special Edition version of its aptly named Century mid-size sedan.  Sharing many stylistic and body characteristics with the Regal, the 2000 Buick Century is cheaper and is Buick's most popular seller for its combination of roomy family-friendly interior and affordable price tag.  The new SE joins the base Custom and Limited in the lineup, and they all get a new 3.1-liter V6 engine that hits 175-hp, a 15-hp boost from last year.  A new 4-speed automatic is the only transmission.  Improvements to the manifold and exhaust boost the power of the new engine and increase highway fuel economy to a decent 30 mpg.  

Other additions this year is standard dual-zone climate control, which is electronically controlled in the SE.  The Special Edition features 2000 logos, a monochrome exterior, leather seats, 6-way power driver's seat, and wheel-mounted audio controls.  All of the 2000 Century sedans have ABS brakes, traction control, full power features, remote entry, a tire monitor, and dual front airbags.  The Limited and SE add leather seats and side impact airbags.  Rear seats do not fold, but the trunk is ample, at 16.7 cubic feet.  Front seats feature a fold-down armrest/storage compartment.  

With its great gas mileage, comfortable interior, and quiet and smooth ride, the 2000 Century is popular as a family car, and is reliable and roomy for long trips, according to owners.  Drivers wish it had a bit more power and less wind noise from the rear windows.
