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.

2005 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 042008

Century 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,977 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Buick Century. The headlights have been shutting off during the night. The failure has occurred four times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that a new dimmer switch was needed. The manufacturer stated that the dealer would cover half of the repair costs. The contact feels that he should not be charged at all because this is a safety hazard. The current mileage was 69,000 and failure mileage was 68,977. Updated 4/23/08
