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.

Experience extreme gas smells which permeated into the house via garage walls. After having it inspected by a mechanic, it was determined that there was a crack in the delivery mechanism of the tank. Replaced parts and problem has been corrected.

problem #1

S60 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles
I was having trouble with the car stalling and upon taking my 2002 Volvo S 60 to the dealer (bozzanni Volvo in covina, ca. They handled that problem by cleaning the throttle body assembly for a cost of about $500. About two months later the same problem occurred and this time they replaced the entire throttle body assembly for a cost of about $800. When I questioned the dealer about the problem, he told me that it was no longer under warranty and that the repair charge and repair itself was necessary and that there was nothing else they could do. The car had about 55,000 miles on the odometer and I felt that they did not do the job properly in the first place and that the repair work should have been completed under warranty. I have been keeping up with the current investigations on Volvo and their throttle body assembly failures. While my car is an early 2002 mild pressure turbo, I feel that current investigation should encompass other years because the problems is quite similar. This occurred early on in 2005 and I have the old parts and the dealer paperwork on the repair.
