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

Dec 142007

Century 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The 2003 has a number of issues. 1. the lights turn off at random in the dark. This has happened on numerous occasions. 2. the brakes need to be replaced roughly every 8 months. My mechanic said the Buick Century has brakes that are not adequate for the weight of the car. Costly! 3. oil system leaks, complete breakdown. $1200 to replace the system. 4. the dials on the temp control come off. I am trading this pos off before it costs me more money!
