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 driving either the passenger door or the driver door suddenly becomes unlatched even when locked and the information message system comes on saying passenger (or driver) door is open and cabin lights come on. I am required to pull over and resecure doors. This issue has escalated to a nearly daily occurrence. This problem should be fixed by a recall as doors are not supposed to automatically come open on a 7 year old car that has never been in an accident. I have made an appt with the herb gordon Volvo dealer in silver spring md for an assessment.

The doors open while driving. Even if they are locked. The information system gives a message drivers door open or passenger door open and the interior lights come on while driving. This happened to me recently 4 times while driving from kent, Ohio to naples, Florida. The doors were firmly closed and locked and hours later came open by them self. I went to the Volvo dealer in bonita springs and spoke to [xxx] the assistant service manager.he told me the problem was in a door actuator and they were aware of this problem and he claimed this is a wear and tear item costing around a $1000 to repair. I asked what wear and tear could cause the doors to electronically open while driving. He had no reply. I also explained that this is a very unsafe condition and if there isn't a recall, there should be. I called Volvo also on 12-11-14 and spoke to [xxx] who also gave me the run around. I feel this condition is a common problem with theses cars and is an accident waiting to happen, can cause injury or death and should be repaired by Volvo at no cost to all affected owners. Owners who have paid for this repair should be refunded. This is a safety problem caused by Volvo and should be repaired by Volvo.

Water leaks through the rear left and right windows. I have taken the car in three times since Feb 8, 2008 to get this repaired. The solutions have ranged from injecting sealant to replacing the seals. However, the leak persists. Following the most recent repair (replacing the seals on July 8), the right rear side window rattles and the leak is worst than ever. This has been a very frustrating and time-consuming endeavor.
