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.

2003 Volvo C70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Transmission/radiator failure. Coolants mixing with each other and causing transmission to slip in and out of gear at lower speeds. Dealer says $5000 to repair/replace both tranny and radiator. I had taken my 2003 Volvo C-70 convertible in 6 months prior complaining of a low whirring noise which they could not detect or would not detect. I asked about warranty/or secret warranty and they said there were none and that Volvo wouldn't pay for repair, they also stated that this has been happening quite a bit. Consumers are footing the bill for this manufacture defect.
