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.

2013 Volvo C70 Owner Comments

Unit has intermittent engine/exhaust brake malfunction. This is causing the vehicle engine/ exhaust brake to disengage when on a decline at highway speeds. As result the vehicle picks up a great deal of speed and could cause the over use and eventual failure of the vehicle's air brake system. As well as the inability to control the vehicle (though application of the air brakes and/or steering) on a downgrade. There is no warning prior to engine/exhaust brake failure. This originally happened to me while traveling on East bound I-80 over donner pass summit heading towards truckee, ca. And has happened 3 more times since then. The local Volvo truck dealership can find nothing wrong with the vehicle.
