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.

It seems there is a known glitch in the software that has the computer tell the transmission the wrong information and the transmission does not shift correctly. If you continue driving around with this without updating the software it ruins your transmission. Who knew ? Volvo wants $4000. for a new transmission plus labor on the repair that their software causes. Isn't that special? The same "glitch ' causes the engine to fluctuate uncontrollably at idle. The Software update should be free from dealer. Lame :(
