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

problem #1

Century Custom 3.1L V6

One day when driving i realized my steering wheel was vibrating pretty badly and every time i made a left turn a loud clicking sound was heard. Later that day i raised the car up on a jack and when i looked underneath the problem was very noticeable. The sway bar had completely snapped off on the left side and was badly cracked on the right. Unfortunately i didnt have the time or tools to fix this myself so i had to put it in a shop and the total price for parts+labor was $727. Pretty upsetting since this happened right around the holidays.

Overall Buick is a horrible company, so many things have gone wrong with this car and its never a cheap fix. Im a college student right now so cant really afford another car, im afraid im stuck with this piece of crap. This car is like a ticking time bomb you just never know when something is gunna go wrong with it. However in the future i can promise you i will be buying foreign!
