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.

The interior of my vehicle has a strong smell of gasoline. We are aware of the recall 220 in 2010. My vehicle was registered in the District of Columbia in 2010 yet the manufacturer indicates that it is not eligible for the recall based on the fact that it was originally purchased in New York, a state not made part of this recall. {if the language in the recall bulletin states that the vehicle should have been sold or registered in these states, Volvo should not interpret this to mean where the vehicle was originally purchase especially given the fact that the on the date of the recall the vehicle was registered in the District of Columbia a state authorized by the recall to receive a mandatory replacement} should I await a fire to erupt before escalating this matter to get repairs under this recall?

I brought my car from someone in February, and it was running perfect. Now there is a gas smell, a smell that smells so bad I'm scared to drive because it might catch fire. I notice the smell before my birthday. My bday is 9/12, and now it jus had gotten worse. I don't thing I should be at fault for this problem. I don't have money to get it fixed. The dealer wants 1,095$ to fix it.
