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.

2003 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012009

Century 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,458 miles


This is our second Buick (we were given both, by a relative, as gifts - no say in the purchases). The 2001 Buick Century (was 3 years old at the time, only 50,000 kms on it) we had for one year - intake manifold gasket failure at 60,000 kms, major transmission failure ($2500CAD) at 55,000 kms, frequent failures of "low tire" alert, just to name a few. We got rid of the car for a used Honda Civic, before the intake manifold was fixed. Enough!! The second Buick - 2003 - MUCH more reliable, in every way, until 115,000 kms - fuel gauge erratic - replaced fuel pump, almost $600. I have since read about the intake manifold problem on some 2003 Buick's (thought it was mainly 2001 models) - at about 128,000 kms - only 13,000 kms to go before a $1100 bill?!
