ONE YEAR AGO----1/03--- THE A/C WOULD NOT SHUT OFF, EVEN WITH THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION. OF COURSE IT RAN OUT THE BATTERY. WHEN TOWED TO BUICK DEALER IN PEMBROKE PINES, FL. I ASKED TO HAVE THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM FULLY CHECKED TO FIX THE PROBLEM, SO IT WOULD NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. SERVICE MGR. SWORE IT WAS CHECKED AND COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG. JUST RECHARGED BATTERY. NOW 1 YEAR LATER SAME PROBLEM AND I NEED A NEW BATTERY.
IF I GET ONE, I KNOW THIS A/C PROBLEM WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS HAPPENING OR DOES BUICK HAVE A RECALL? OR SOLUTION? THANKS

I wouldn't pay that much for a 2000 model. 2003 models are selling for under $10,000 in the Dallas area. 2002 models I have seen for $6995 advertised, with 50-60K miles on tham. With those miles and that year, IMO it's worth about $4000-$4500. Remember the windshield will cost $200-$400 to fix (used or new part is the price difference)
#6 of 592 Century 2000 Limited sedan

Bought new and are having a problem with "jerking" when proceeding from a stop. The dealership says they have never had a problem like this come into their shop. It does it every once in awhile so when taken out for test drives it behaves like normal. Has anyone ever had this occur and if so what was the solution?

What state do you live in? Here in Colorado, it is against the law for a dealer to sell an automobile with a cracked windshield because it poses a safety hazard.
#8 of 592 2003 Buick Century Odometer?

Any other 2003 Buick Century owners having problems with an inaccurate odometer? Mine is running high.
#9 of 592 ABS Dash Light Malfunction?
Sep 05, 2004 (12:10 pm)
I have a '98 Buick Century and occasionally the ABS warning light is on when the car is started. It might happen one time in ten. It never comes on except when the car is started and when it does come on, it does not go out while driving or flicker on & off. There is no noticeable effect on braking.
I've had previous cars where the engine service light occasionally came on and a mechanic could find no reason for it. Anybody else had an intermittent ABS warning light problem?

Have a mechanic check for stored trouble codes in the ABS controller. Many intermittent ABS faults are wheel speed sensor related.
