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.

2007 Volvo S40 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 032007

S40 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 400 miles


On my brand new S-40 Volvo with a manual 5 speed transmission operating the clutch pedal to be fully depressed to the floor can be obstructed easily by an adjacent protruding panel on the floor board. When my left foot is blocked by this protruding panel, I am inhibited from shifting gears. This condition is very dangerous in heavy traffic. Volvo customer service has been advised of this problem and has refused to acknowledge it as a defect. Volvo has refused to provide a simple solution to the problem by supplying a properly formed clutch lever that positions the clutch pedal far enough away from the protruding panel for consistently proper depression of the clutch during shifting.
