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.

2005 Volvo S40 Owner Comments

Car stalls with out warning when travel at speeds of 0-65 mph very dangerous!! there are recalls re: Fuel pressure sensors for nearly all Volvo makes except the S40 2005 this part is truly a defective item and needs to be recalled before a death occurs on the highway!! I thought Volvo was a safe reliable car but I can honestly say this car is the biggest piece of junk I have ever spent a lot of money on. The tires blew out on the sides which also put me in danger the interior headliner fell off as well as all other material on the doors all leather is loose gear shifter cover fell apart. Gas cap broke gas builds too much pressure loosening the gas cap frequently these are just some of the issues I have. Very disappointed in this vehicle I keep my car in the garage. Only drive to and from grocery shopping and dr appts please consider recalls on the important parts of the vehicle that can save lives!
