2000 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 082005

Century 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles


I have a 2000 Buick Century. The transmission started to shift hard at 70000 miles in Sept of 2001 and dealer replaced the pressure control solenoid that is located in the transmission. At 99000 miles June, 2005, the transmission started doing the same thing and the dealer could not find the problem. I spoke with the sales manager after threatening to go to the owner and the problem was the same solenoid problem. The shop foreman at cambron Chevy/Buick in tell city, in could replace the part for $575 because the warranty had expired. I contacted marama hanset-callies and informed her that I have had this problem in Sept of 2001 and that the valve should not be going out. I since have discovered that there are 17-19 other complaints for the same problem. GM has not corrected the problem on the T65-E transmission. The dealer and hanset-callies have a very that's to bad attitude.
