Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** ***** Tracy. My girl friend has a 2005 Buick Century And her niece has a 2004. The gas gauge has failed in both cars. The cost to replace is appx. $500.00. Were there ant recals on these year of the Century model?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Both card were purcahes fron individuals that have passed away. The 2005 wasr purchased about seven years ago and the 2004 was purchased last year. It seems strange that the failure has occured in both models.

I'm sorry the Tech you requested was unavailable to assist you today. It appears that Tech is currently "Offline". Did you still need help on this issue?
