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.

2002 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

Through normal use, in the course of the last two years both of the front interior door handle assemblies have broken. Manufacturer's suggested fix is to replace entire interior door panel assembly, as linkage for door is built into door panel, an exorbitant cost and extravagant fix for something so small. Broken interior door linkage means occupants must roll windows down, and access exterior door handle through window in order to open car door. This is a potential safety concern in event of a crash and emergency egress needs to be made from the vehicle.
