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.

6th window failure in the 15 years I had owned the car and the "really awful" rating is not strong enough to express my feelings. After five former failures my front passenger window is being held in place with my two suction cups. The funny thing is that the window I open the most, drivers window, has never been a problem....at least not yet. I shall go back to get #6 replaced asap....maybe I need to find more suction cups just in case it goes too !

Failure #5 on one of the rear window motors. I retrieved the suction cups from the glove box after muttering a few choice words and reported to the repair shop. By now we are on a first name basis and he is like "family." I see so many complaints from other Buick owners and cannot understand how Buick owners, even those with newer cars are still having this proble.

Fourth time.....Again one of the rear motors failed at a most inconvenient time and raining like the devil....My temporary solution was to grab the half open window glass, pull it closed, and use two oversized suction cups to hold it until I could get home to the repair garage. This is ridiculous and expensive. Now I carry the suction cups in my glove box. Why does this keep happening ? I rarely open the rear windows.!!!

Third time the motor failed, this time on front passenger side and a third trip to repair shop. My friend who also has a Buick Regal had replaced her window devises twice. There certainly should have been a recall by this time but none listed !

The second window motor failed so had to return to repair shop for a replacement and more expense plus the waste of time . At this time both rear windows have been replaced.

First time this happened the window went down into the door panel and I had to replace the whole window motor/apparatus that same day...Since then I have had the same problem five more times, each time at a cost of about $175.00.

No fast food drive throughs for me!!! I hate opening my door and trying to get food and drinks. I wish this vehicle was in the bottom of a pit somewhere.
