Here’s Why 2001 Buick Century Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Buick Century to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Century. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Century, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2001 Buick Century maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Buick, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Century perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2001 Buick Century problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Buick Century Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2001 Buick Century for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Century's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2001 Buick Century be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Century may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Buick Century battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Century stranded. Your Buick Century could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2001 Buick Century running newer, longer. To learn how often Buick recommends you have the oil changed in your 2001 Century, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2001 Buick Century.

Maintaining your Buick Century steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Buick Century's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Buick Century maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Buick Century’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
