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.

The contact owns a 2001 Volvo C70 convertible. While driving at any speed, the vehicle stalls, but then drives normally. The failure occurs intermittently and the contact did not notice any difference in the vehicle beforehand. The vehicle has not been in a crash and has not been diagnosed by the dealer. NHTSA campaign id number 06V441000 (vehicle speed control) was referenced. The current mileage was 66,521 and failure mileage was 60,000. Updated 6/2/08 the dealer cleaned the throttle body, but the problem continued.

My vehicle is a 2001 Volvo C70. We have been experiencing intermittent stalling of the engine while driving. The vehicle does not totally lose power, it last for a second or two. I am reporting this because I became aware of a government investigation of a similar issue.
