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.

While driving, sun roof failed to open and interior lights would not turn on. Brought to Volvo dealer and service manager claimed the exxon/mobil speed pass that was attached to the key chain caused the electrical interference such that these items could not work. If this is the case, isn't this a hazard for thousands of other Volvo drivers with speed pass and Volvo cars" what other electrical equipment could fail while driving"

When the vehicle was at idle it shook. The dealership cleaned the throttle, but the problem still existed. After many times of going to the dealer for repairs, the timing valves were found to be a problem in which they were fractured. Also, the electrical bulbs in the front and tail had failed. Scc
