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 #2

Century Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 138,000 miles


I had a new window motor put in my 1998 Buick Century on the front drivers side, in January of 2010 and it broke again 4 months later. I am 80 years old and cannot afford to fix again. Thanks Buick!! Right now it is getting warmer again and I can't roll the window down. I go to the drive thru at the bank and I have to open the door and the same thing at the toll plazas. It is a great inconvenience. After reading what I have on the website I would never recommend a Buick to anyone.

Century V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles

I am a poor teacher that loves my car and did not plan to get a car this year. Everything on the car has passed inspection and I have no other complaints but I may have to get rid of this car because the window will not go up. Where can I get a cheap door/window motor because I have been told the price of repair is $400.00 ?
