2002 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #4

I got a brand new car, received a letter saying the windshield wipers needed to be checked. Took vehicle back to dealer, and they said windshield wipers were alright. In several past winter the windshield wipers stayed in upright position and would not go down, blocking my vision, took it back, they put a new motor in it, and it worked until the following winter, same thing happened, and they fixed the windshield wipers in 2003,2004,2005, and 2006, my warranty ran out in 2007, so they would not fix the windshield wipers any more. I eel L like they prolonging the windshield wipers until my warranty ran out, and I was stuck with them upright while driving. I have looked on the computer and found at least 6 more people with the same problem.

The windshield wipers will not go down, but stay in front of my vision, blocking the view. I took vehicle to the dealer, they tried to fix the problem, but every year in winter they still stick in the middle of the windshied. Four years ever winter they block my vision.

Century 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,300 miles
Windshield wipers shut off in the verticle position, started at 48,300 miles on vehicle. I have talked to other Buick owners who have had this problem. Why has there been no recall to fix this obvious defect ?
