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

  • miles


The reverse lights and tag light stopped working due to fraying of wires near trunk hinge. Fraying also cased the "trunk/door" light to illuminate on dash until repaired. Cheap plastic covering did nothing to prevent fraying from contact with trunk hinge. At 3000 miles, had to go to dealer three times to have steering column replaced due to loud noise when wheel was turned. Sun visors are hard to use, they hit rearview mirror when adjusted. Inadequate even when used. Very loud popping sound on driver's side at times under brake pedal. Good car otherwise.
