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.

The contact owns a 2002 Volvo S60. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle reduced in speed going to 35 mph. The contact applied pressure to the accelerator pedal and the vehicle failed to accelerate. The vehicle was taken to a Volvo dealer who diagnosed the failure as the ETM and was replaced it at the owners expense. The ETM failure recurred. The vehicle will be diagnosed by the dealer. The failure mileage was 110000 and the current mileage was 154000.
