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.

Fuel gauge reports inaccurate fuel level readings. Rate at which gauge depletes is too rapid such that when gauge registers 1/2 tank, 3/4 tank of fuel exists, when gauge registers 1/4 tank, 1/2 tank exists, and so on. Gauge registers 3-4 gallons less than what is in the fuel tank (capacity: 16 gallons). Problem reported to dealersip twice. Dealer advises that there is no fix for this issue-- states that Volvo North America does not have a fix currently under development. Problem began to occur approx 3 to 4 months after new vehicle purchase.
