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.

2002 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,000 miles


When it rains water pours into the passenger side. Have had well over an inch of water on floor. Seems to be coming from under the dashboard. From what I have read many owners are having this problem. Why isn't GM fixing the problem???? It's one thing to have a design problem but fix it and people might decide to buy the same model again. Let all the problems be the customers problems and it leads to very angry bunch of people who will not buy a Buick/GM product again!

Update from May 3, 2009: Found that casket that protects cabin filter leaking water into the passenger side floor had fallen off. Removed trim under windshield. One "button" in center of panel screws out, other two pull out (2pieces). Gasket glued back on. This leak had caused heater/ ac/ blower resister to blow. Fixed on own. Cost was price of casket/weatherstrip adhesive.
