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

problem #2

  • 99,000 miles


Driving 2001 Volvo S60 2.4T at 30 mph, stepped brakes and they locked up (car has ABS) causing complete loss of control. Went into spin and crashed over curb, breaking both passenger side rims and gauging rear tire. Had to be towed; one week later, car still in shop. Mechanic can find no reason for fault codes on computer, fluids, wires, etc all fine.

S60 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission

: the contact stated the vehicle accelerated on its own after reaching 30 mph and caused an accident. The contact tried braking, but the brakes failed, due to the throttle issue. The vehicle was not taken to a service dealer to address the issue. A police report was taken.
