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.

problem #2

C70 2.3L L5

  • Automatic transmission
  • 164,995 miles


The dipstick for the transmission, so you can check the fluid is under about three hoses, and you can't even see it, very dumb if you ask me. You can't change the filter without tearing down the entire transmission. American cars are soooo much better built. I can't wait to sell this car.

C70 Convertable 2.4L Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

The transmission completely went on my C70 after less than 90,000. I contacted Vovlo, they told me to get lost. I had to have the transmission completely rebuilt for $3,500. Way too much to spend on a car with less than 100,000 miles. Pretty crappy.
