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.

This is the THIRD time one of the electric windows has broken, each time it costs over $300 to fix, GM made these things cheap and unreliable. I'm out a thousand dollars on electric window repairs now.

Car is in Florida but now no windows work just approaching 100,000. Car has been dependable otherwise.

All four windows have failed.

Century Custom V6

  • Automatic transmission

within 3 months, all 4 windows went down and would not roll up. The motors had to be replaced. On the 2nd one, my mechanic said that the motors were from Toyota and were installed by General motors on the Buicks since l999 and he had lost count of how many he had replaced. He also replaced the next 2, at $750.00 a pop, I now had an investment of a new car down payment in this auto!!

Within a 5 week period both electric rear windows were found open and won't close . The rear windows were never or rearly opened . The motord seem to work but the windows won't close . It seems very unusual for this to happen to both windows at nearly the same time . I've read that other people have had similar problems with their Buick electric windows .
