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.

2003 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #2

2003 Volvo S60 experienced "death" of driver information module (dim), which monitors all gauges on the vehicle. Dealership is able to replace the part for $1500! it not available "after market" by another manufacturer. Research online shows this is a very common problem among 2001-2003 models. This major safety concern should be investigated, as numerous people are driving without dash panel information due to the exorbitant cost. The problem began approximately two weeks ago and cannot be remedied without buying the dim.

The oem jack that came with my Volvo failed miserably when I had a flat tire. The jack was never used before this incident. While the jack was placed on a level surface and was completely vertical, the force necessary to spin the jack handle caused the jack to very slowly slide sideways in an increasingly precarious position. I stopped and started over several times only to render the same result. After several attempts, I was able raise the car high enough to attempt removal of the flat tire. The jack however was very unstable. While attempting to remove the tire, the jack failed and the car fell to the ground. Luckily, the flat tire was still on the car. Since I was in my paved driveway, I was able to use another jack. Since it wasn't a Volvo jack, I was able to use wooden blocks to crib or secure the car by stacking wood under the car as the jack raised the car so it wouldn't fall off the jack. The Volvo jack is bent and unsafe to use again, even though it wasn't safe to use the first time. I am reporting it as I have found many other Volvo owners on the web who had the same experience with their Volvo.
