Mine failed at 32,000 miles. We all need to contact Buick Customer Care. Paying thousands for replacing parts they KNEW were defective borders on being criminal. They never recalled the car, but quietly changed the known defective part, when it should have been recalled. It's as though they're in the business of keeping their service departments in business with $1000 labor costs for each repair. I am so scared that something else will break that I'll be trading it in very soon..I think even a Kia might be more reliable. At least I won't be spending $26K for one.

Agree about contacting Buick customer care but probably useless. Buick has known about this issue for years and have done nothing. And why are US cars in trouble?

2003 Buick Century: can anyone tell me what the lines are near the oil pan and transmission pan. They snake back and forth and run up near the transmission pan. Are they transmission lines, or power steering lines?

#476 of 482 2003 buick century - water in tail lights
Sep 19, 2011 (11:56 am)
Hello - Does anyone have this problem and know what is causing it and how to correct it.
My 2003 buick century keeps getting water inside the tail lights. There aren't any cracks or anything obvious like that. Why is this happening and should I be concerned???
Thanks for any advice, Deborah

The plastic behind the thin connector wires does not hold up well as the thin wires used as the lamp connectors heat up. The left signal and cornering light tend to stay on longer than the right while waiting to turn, so the plastic softens and the connector eases down into the plastic. I fixed mine by gently raising the wire and putting a small piece of metal tape behind it. The kind of metal tape used to seal ducts will work fine. Keep the piece small enough that it will not allow any chance of causing a short.

I had that same problem, and it continues on and off. its the throttle sticking. I sprayed some lube on it and it worked good as new again.
