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.

While driving in rainy weather sun roof does not close. Consumer states it's very difficult to see when the rain is coming into the vehicle.

Design of the dashboard casts a reflection onto the front windshield, causing reduced visibility during the day while driving. The consumer checked other Buick Century's and lasabre's and noticed that they had the same problem.

Bad aerodynamics can not drive car with rear window down. The air pressure will burst your eardrums. Contacted bucik division. They are aware of the problem. Their solution is to lower one front window a bit.
