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.

2008 Volvo C70 Owner Comments

On multiple occasions over several months, the passenger side door would pop open while driving at highway speeds or even at slower speeds when taking a turn. Was randomly occurring and not necessarily related to driving over any bumps. Dealer kept for several weeks stating door latch was in spec and that manufacturer would not reimburse dealer if not defective part. First dealer attempted to put in metal splints wedged into the front door panel frame. Problem still occurred. Finally dealer replaced door latch and problem has not reoccurred in 8 months since. Have seen similar reports online from other car owners.
