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.

C30 5-cyl

  • 93,500 miles


While driving my Volvo C30 redesign, I stopped at a stop sign before I entered main road from parking lot area vehicle began to accelerate to a high speed independently causing the car to move towards the intersection. No cars were approaching so I continued turning but it was very unsafe. It happened before at fort hood and near my house in temple tx. Always same conditions; as I start to accelerate the vehicle jump into a high speed or gear. This morning the vehicle was on high rev idle, did not went down until I change to manual and back to automatic. Please advice.
