Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 062003

Century 6-cyl

  • 28,331 miles


Consumer stated that while driving and without warning, brake fluid leaked from the rear wheel cylinder. Dealer notified. The consumer felt that GM parts were of poor quality, as he owned a Buick before, that had a number of problems at low mileage. The service dealer told the consumer that the hot climate caused the rubber inside of the wheel cylinders to crack.
