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.

2001 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

Consumer stated 2001 Volvo S 60 was having a problem with the unit that regulated the air flow into the brakes and engine. The car was making a hissing sound, like air being let into the cabin. This was happening a lot, especially in the heat. The brakes had to be depressed to get the car to stop. Consumer had the car fixed last week at the dealership; the mechanic informed consumer that the air pump to the brakes had to be replaced. This vehicle was not stalling, or losing power, nor were there near misses. Consume R was just responding to this because of what she saw on the news. The warranty expired. Repairs were done at consumer's expense.
