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

  • 77,000 miles


2002 Volvo S60 2.4T model. Picked up my car from an authorized Volvo repair center for routine maintenance and was advised that I needed a new gear box. This gear box runs at a cost of $2,000 with about 4 or 5 hours of labor at $400. The car has only 77,000 miles on it and I strongly believe that it is premature for this part to fail. I have searched the internet references on the topic and find it to be somewhat widespread. I would appreciate some feedback on the issue as I plan to address Volvo corporate for a resolution.
