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

S60 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 81,872 miles


2001 Volvo S60 T5 w/manual transmission stalled abruptly with a "reduced power" message on the dashboard computer display while accelerating on a highway onramp. This was a very dangerous situation, as another vehicle was behind me and came close to colliding with my vehicle due to immediate deceleration w/no warning/brake lights until I was able to react to the unexpected situation. After pulling over, stopping the car for a few minutes and restarting, I was able to continue driving it, but it seemed to run rough and "stutter" a bit for the rest of the trip. Drove to local Volvo dealership first thing next morning and resulting diagnosis & repair was "throttle unit internal fault" and replacement of the electronic throttle module (ETM). Engine fault codes were: ECM 915D, 916D, 904C, 928A & 903F. Repairs totaled $1,012.03.
