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.

I needed to replace a fuel pump on my Volvo S60 after just five years. I smelled gas and it concerned me. When I took it in, they wanted me to replace the fuel pump. I felt it should be covered under warranty and was upset about it. When I did some research I found that Volvo has had a problem with their fuel pumps. I wrote a formal letter complaining to Volvo which they did nothing about. I noticed that there was a recall in Nevada and Arizona. Why not California?

I recently noticed a gas odor in my garage coming out from the bottom of my Volvo. It appears to be the fuel pump. After a brief research it appears if you live in Nevada or Arizona your fuel pump can be change free of charge. But not in California where my Volvo uses the same fuel pump. Help!

I owned a 1991 Volvo S60 sedan and I understand you are investigating this car. From time to time as I drove it, it would unexpectedly loose speed and power for a few seconds and then resume. It never fully stalled out. I had mentioned this at a service time for the car but nothing wrong was uncovered. Recently my daughter was driving the car on interstate 5 South of la when the car engine ceased functioning while she was driving in the hov lane. Fortunately the driver was able to coast to the shoulder through traffic without getting hit. The easily could have been hit and she could have died and we never would have known it was a vehicle failure. The car was towed to a dealership where I was told they eventually diagnosed a "failed fuel pump". I have no validation of this. I did not want to drive this car again and it was lease-end so I traded the car in that very day for a new car.
