Two problems related to wiper have been reported for the 1998 Buick Century. The most recently reported issues are listed below.
After a snowfall, the windshield wipers would not park, stood straight up and obstructed my view. I called Buick and was told to take it to my dealership and it would be repaired. When I picked up the car, they told me that the previous year's model had been recalled for this problem. They would not repair the wipers. I have been told by two mechanics that my car has the exact issue as the previous model. I find that this is a danger to myself, my children and other drivers/passengers and feel that it should be on the recall list.
Windshield wipers are not functioning properly. My left wiper bangs a few inches up then smacks back down. This is not snow related because I've learner to cover all aspects of the wipers and windshield because of my first time waiting for snow to melt. This has been ongoing since I acquired the car from my grandmother in Dec. 2008. She purchased the car, but is too old too keep up with recalls and such. I see there are many other complaints and I was almost in a crash with my children due to a sudden rain shower causing the visibility to be awful.
