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 #3

Aug 202015


  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


It started with my windows getting stuck and not going up or down til I wiggled a cord inside the driver side door, where it hinges to the car. That has been going on for several months. Now my back drivers side window just goes down on its own, actually FALLS down! and I have to pull over and grab it with my hands and pull it back up and DUCK TAPE IT! And it STILL falls down! I don't know what I am going to do with it!! I'm fixing to SUPER GLUE IT TO THE FRAME!!!

Both rear windows dropped simultaneously at a time when the weather was rainy. Estimated cost to fix the problem using junk yard materials is about $200 per window.

This is the second incident. Previously had one of those same rear windows fixed for the same issue at a Buick dealer about 2yrs ago.
