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.

Front passenger side door, will not open from the inside and window will not roll down. Window locked in place and the motor struggles in its attempt to roll it down. Along with this a week later my sun roof decided not to open, in an attempt to open the sun roof- all you hear is a loud clicking sound. Even then it barely cracks open.

The passenger side front door will not open from the inside. The car was brought to garden state Volvo in wall, NJ in March for this to be fixed. The mechanic "fixed" the inside cable with duct tape and charged us $175 for the repair. Within a week the door was broken again. I called garden state Volvo and asked for the part to repair this problem to be ordered. I have called several times and I have been told that the part is back-ordered and is coming from sweden. This is a very dangerous situation, in case of an accident the driver can not get out.

At approximately 85,000 miles on my 2003 Volvo S60, the passenger front door failed to open. The dealer said a plastic part had broken inside the door panel and to correctly fix, it would be $845 and that the entire door panel would need to be replaced. They then said that if we wanted to accept the risk, they could go in and glue the piece and tie it for $162. Volvo said they wouldn't be responsible although the part failure traps a person in the car not allowing the passenger to open their door from within. I went with the risky $162 option and it failed to work a month later. The front passenger door is inoperable from the inside of the car. It will open from the latch on the outside of the car.
