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.

2006 Volvo S40 Owner Comments

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I experienced a tire sidewall blowout on a Michelin energy mxv4 plus V rated tire size 205 55 16 with 9000 miles at approximately 70 mph. This caused car to become extremely hard to control swerving across several lanes of traffic, and then spinning off the highway, ending up next to a canal facing traffic. I was extremely fortunate not to hit another vehicle or end up in the canal. The blowout damaged the factory rims. I have not yet determined if there was additional damage to the under carriage tire dealer determined blowout was a result of manufacturing defect and replaced tire pro-rata, but Michelin refused to process claim for damages to vehicle or do anything else concerning the remaining tires that the 2006 Volvo S40 came equipped with and may have the same defect.
