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

problem #1

Aug 152002

S60 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles


1) driver's seat shifts rearward on acceleration and shifts forward on braking. Dealer has attempted to fix this problem 3 or more times, but it re-ppears shortly after repair. This is a safety issue. 2) vehicle difficult to shift gears (manual transmission). Gear changes are very 'jerky', the vehicle cannot be shifted smoothly. Volvo recommends letting the clutch slip more, but this only masks the problem. 3) Volvo acknowledges an electromagnetic radiation problem with this vehicle, but refuses to fix it. This is a safety issue.
