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.

2001 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #1

In October 2007, I inquired of fields Volvo of waukesha Wisconsin, about a malfunctioning temperature gage. The gage would often display a faulty reading, showing that the car was overheating when in fact it was not. When I bought my car in for an inspection of the matter, jason fischer service advisor, informed me that I needed an electronics bo ( see attached receipt). He assured me that was the problem, so I agreed to allow him to replace it and was charged $537.15 for the procedure. However, a year later in July 2008, the problem resurfaced. Eventually, the cooling fan malfunctioned and would not shut off. This problem also caused the battery to drain. I took my car to auto werks import centre in milwaukee, Wisconsin, who through research of the problem, found that there was a recall issued for the cooling fan in November 2004. I was also charged $200.53 for replacement of a temperature sensor and the thermostat. (see attached receipt) as a satisfied Volvo customer for over 10 years, I feel that had thorough research been done prior to malfunctioning of the cooling fan, excess charges could have been avoided. I am therefore seeking a partial refund of maintenance charges. Your immediate response to my request would be most appreciated.
