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

C30 5-cyl

Front driver's seat headrest engaged visor in stowed position when seat pushed forward to enter rear seat. This caused the mirror inside the visor to shatter. We did not realize this had occurred until after my wife was driving, lowered the visor, and glass shards fell on her lap. Thankfully they did not fall in her face/eyes. This did not cause a wreck, but we're concerned that this could cause future accidents. We contacted Volvo usa, and they acknowledged prior reports of similar incidents, but stated that the damage was not covered by the warranty, and essentially they took no responsibility. This is unfortunate, as I believe this to be a critical design flaw that could cause a fatal accident. I notified Volvo usa that I had no choice but to file this claim with NHTSA, in an effort to alert other drivers of potential risks.
