Answer to PerfectReign to understand my contempt for GM ...
I had purchased a Buick Century wagon in '84 for my wife's use so she could
drive our infant children on her errands. The car's weight distribution was
so poorly designed that, if the road was the slightest bit wet, the rear
brakes would lock up and the rear end would fish-tail. I'm not taking about
panic stop situations but even casual use to slow down in traffic. I had to
put eight cinder blocks in the way back to add some weight over the rear end
until I could get rid of this dangerous GM POS.
Easily fixed by a competent mechanic perhaps but I was dealing with Mr.
Goodwrench. Another problem tells the story ...
When stopped at a red light in the rain, the car would stall and the inside
windshield would suddenly fog over. This happened every time the car was
stopped in the rain for more than a minute or so. I brought the car back to
the dealership, Bezema Buick Norwood MA, at least three times and each time
Mr. Goodwrench could find nothing wrong. Finally, in desperation, I brought
the car to a local gas station and the problem was easily diagnosed and
fixed. It seems when the car was stopped in the rain, water would well up
in a trough under the cowl at the base of the windshield. Eventually the
water would overflow into the A/C intake ducts also mounted in the trough.
That would stall the engine (just how I'm not sure) and the A/C would them
blow the moist mist onto the inside windshield. This only happened when the
car was stopped because when in motion any accumulating water would slosh
out of the trough. The solution was to open up a blocked hose that would
normally allow excess water to drain from the trough.
The dealership was given multiple opportunities but was unable or unwilling
to fix the many problems with this dangerous GM POS.
