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 #1

A fellow Volvo driver pointed out the corrosion and pitting of the mag wheels when the car was only 8 months old. According to the dealership whom I have pointed this matter out to, these mag wheels are not cheap and are worth about $700 (Canadian dollars) each to buy. While at the dealership, the service manager and I checked out a number of Volvos in the service lot and found that the problem only existed on the new S series. He has subsequently taken it up with Volvo Canada, but I have had no information back. It appears that with the new series they used cheaper materials for their mag wheels. It really is disgraceful that a relatively expensive car like this that is supposed to be designed for Swedish winters, is including expensive mag wheels that pit and corrode. Definitely a defect in manufacture.
