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.

the coolant pump was leaking and would drain the radiator, could not drive the car until it was replaced.

problem #1

Sep 152007

Century Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles

not much to say other than seems to be a very unusual problem

especially since I am now having to have the intake gaskets replaced

Between these repair costs and new tires I can't afford to trade the

car in for a couple of years. Thats ok, because now I won't just

go back to Buick or GM, but will look around at other options.
