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.

While on vacation two of my original 18" mirzam rims went out of round in February of 2008. The car only had 17000 miles on it. I took it to a Volvo dealership because of a tire going flat and it was determined that the second two original 18" mirzam rims had gone out of round and one of the 18" mirzam rims was cracked on the interior. This was not the first time this happened. These two rims are available for inspection. I bought my 2006 Volvo C70 in August of 2006 at galpin motors. In may of 2007, I took my C70 into the dealership because one of my tires was going flat. It turned out two of my 18" mirzam rims had gone out of round and one of them was cracked on the interior. No other damage was found to have occurred to the car. The car only had 7900 miles on it. The rims and tires are not available for inspection because the dealership (galpin motors) lost them. Galpin Volvo and Volvo North America have done nothing to resolve this issue. I was told this issue can occur due to normally driving conditions and this is the reason why the rims going out of round are not under any type of warranty. If I had known this was going to be an issue I would have bought my C70 with different rims. To date I am out of pocket $2,485.52 and I wince at any bump, dip or crack in the road. So much for Volvo safety. I am still trying to resolve this issue to my satisfaction. I have since found more people who have had the same out of round rim problem.

I bought my 2006 Volvo C70 in August of 2006 at galpin motors. I took my C70 into the dealership in may of 2007 because one of my tires was going flat. It turns out two of my 18" mirzam rims had gone out of round and one of them was cracked on the interior. No other damage was found to have occurred to the car. One tire had a slight separation due to the defect of the rim. The car only had 7900 miles on it. The rims and tires are not available for inspection because the dealership (galpin motors) lost them. The other two original 18" mirzam rims went out of round in February of 2008 while on vacation. The car only had 17000 miles on it. I again took it to a Volvo dealership because of a tire going flat and once again it was determined that the second two original 18" mirzam rims had gone out of round and one of the 18" mirzam rims was cracked on the interior. These two rims are available for inspection. Galpin Volvo and Volvo North America have done nothing to resolve this issue.
