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

problem #3

My daughter was in a frontal collision with another car (2001 Volvo S60), there were no other passengers. Most of the damage was to the front left of her car; however, only the passenger side airbag deployed. Her speed before breaking was ~50 mph; the car was totaled. Although my daughter was not seriously injured I consider this a safety issue since the velocity was great enough for the passenger side airbag deploy. Additionally, the side curtains did not deploy. Of what value is a malfunction safety device? other than a fault light (which was not lit) how can one be certain an airbag is function properly?
