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.

1999 Buick Century Owner Comments

This car has given me nothing but troubles. This vehicle was purchased brand new off the lot in 1999 by my grandmother who gave it nothing but love and care. She had all the scheduled maintenance done on it and changed the oil every 3000 miles. It is really unfortunate that the car only has just over 100,000 miles on it and it is falling apart. There have been countless minor issues with it but none the less they shouldn't have happened with the way this car has been taken care of. Major expensive problems - First the windows don't work (involves new window switch and rewiring) the the intake manifold gasket (involves completely taking the engine apart $800), next the wiper motor goes out and leaves my wipers up on the windshield ($250), now the blinkers seem to not work. This is a very low quality vehicle and I would never suggest this model. Buick is a wonderful brand and my family has owned several other models with no problems all the way up to 250,000 miles. Just thought I'd share my problems with you along with the other many people that have complaints about this car. If you are researching this vehicle to buy, please save yourself the time, money and headache. Thank you, Kyle.
