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.

Century 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


2 of the power windows went out within a week of each other and the third this year and they have all gone out in the middle of August in the desert heat. This car is the worst thing I have ever driven with electrical problems galore

Century Custom

  • 33,000 miles

Before purchasing, I visited with two different service advisors (Buick Dealerships) regarding any ongoing reliablility issues. Both suggested buying an extended warranty as I would likely need to replace one or more power window motors. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!!!! At 33,000 & 36,000 miles, both driver & passenger side power window motors failed. This is VERY annoying as the '98 Malibu (traded-in) had the same problem. And my wife's Rivieras both had powere window failures. SO WHAT"S UP GM?? It's time to review your QC !!
