Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Volvo C30 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oil trap broken. Was told by my mechanic there was a Volvo recall for this problem (dealership recall # 202). Volvo dealership said my make and model was not included in the recall. I believe it was an oversite, as my vehicle was manufactured in the same country as the other Volvo make and models included in the recall. This 2008 C30 is the first model of this type. It should have been included in the recall and was not. Please investigate. I've paid $550 to repair due to poor manufacturing. Please review and contact Volvo regarding this. Hopefully other's with the same make and model have filed a complaint for a stronger case. I want my money back.
