2002 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #1

When rear brake linings are wet or damp, a terrible noise follows application along with severe grabbing and lock up of one rear wheel. It happens continually until brakes dry out from use. No accident has occurred but very definitely could on slick surface roads. Dealer and Buick mtr. Division refuse to assist. 12,000 miles on 2002 Buick Century. Thank you.
