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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 2006 Volvo C70 and the tiers started to loose air. When I had the vehicle inspected I found out that three of the four 18' rims had cracks on the inside of the rim edge...with a little research I have found that this is a common problem with the 2006 Volvo C70. It is an outrage that Volvo does not yet have to fix this safety issue. Who knows how many accidents have or will happen due to a tire going flat on this model and rim size. I know that sometimes rims can get damaged however, " all are cracking in the same area". I will have to replace all three rims to make the vehicle safe to drive. Thank you in advance. R. swaney.

C70 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,594 miles
6/06 vehicle purchased with 18 inch alloy wheels, tire size 235/40/18 8/27/07 (mileage 22,636) vehicle brought to dealer after rear tire began losing air, found to have a crack in the inner rim. This was repaired and refinished 9/18/07 (mileage 23,617) vehicle brought to dealer with steering wheel shimmy at high speeds affecting the drivability of the car. Found to have 3 wheels out of round (all except for the wheel repaired 1 month earlier). Wheels replaced with 4 new factory wheels 11/16/07 (mileage 26,594) vehicle brought to dealer with excessive wheel/axle noise and found to have all 4 wheels out-of-round. Factory wheels too soft to withstand normal driving. Although the low profile design of the tires likely contributed to the durability of the wheels, it may not be appropriate to put wheels of this design on this vehicle. All 8 wheels are available for inspection.
