2001 Buick Century

It's no eye-turner, but the 2001 Buick Century gets the job done comfortably and affordably.  The mid-sized front-wheel drive sedan is Buick's most popular car, perfect for families or first-time buyers, though its average driver is probably heading for retirement.  It comes with a long list of features, gets four-star crash ratings, and is surprisingly roomy inside.  Its low price tag and nondescript styling may account for its popularity in the fleet and corporate segments.

The 2001 Century comes in base Custom and better equipped Limited trims.  The Special Edition trim from last year is now offered as an appearance package, with blacked-out grille, monochrome paint, and 15-inch chrome wheels.  OnStar is now standard on the Limited and optional on the Custom.  An emergency interior trunk release has been added in case grandma locks her grandkids in the trunk by mistake, and new rear wheel well liners help reduce some road noise.  An uninspiring 3.1-liter, 175-hp V6 and 4-speed auto tran power the 2001 Century, and though it won't win a drag race, drivers say it provides good enough pep on the highway.  It also has been rated at 20/30 mpg, which drivers love in a mid-size sedan.  ABS brakes, traction control, dual front airbag, and automatic headlights are standard safety features, and a tire monitor and side impact bags are added on the Limited.  

The Limited offers a lot of luxury, including power seats, leather upholstery, and cruise control, but even the Custom offers power features and keyless entry, which is pretty good for an entry-level car.  Unlike the Regal, the 2001 Century seats six people in two rows of bench seats.  Drivers praise the roominess of the cabin and trunk, along with the comfortable seats.  A favorite feature is the auto headlights.  Aside from a need for a bigger engine, the only consistent complaint was about the boring and outdated looks of the 2001 Buick Century.
