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.

2004 S60 Volvo alarm system service required. I've owned more than 8 different cars older than this car, and they never had any issue with the alarm. It seems to be very common to replace the alarm module in this Volvo model because of the acid leak from the battery that causes a short in the circuit. And yes it will happen again after the replacement. What a ripoff.

I have 2004 Volvo S60volvo. I was trying to raise my vehicle on the oem jack came with my car to change the wheel. After few second I removed my tire, the jack collapsed - and my car came crashing down. I was lucky as I had stuck my head into the wheel well moments before to check my brake pads and rotors, and had my fingers around the suspension linkages.

Late last summer, upon starting up my car, I noticed a hissing noise coming from the center panel on the dashboard. Didn't really think anything of it until I tried to turn on the air conditioner and the car made the same hissing noise. Noise lasts only 5-10 seconds upon startup of the car or the ac, but now the ac only blows hot air. Took car to Volvo dealership here in southern California where I purchased the car and they said that they were going to have to rip open the entire front panel to investigate the problem. As I have been told twice previously by this dealership that I need service that I did not really need (this was now the third time), I chose to hold off on letting them perform such a task. Instead, I took the car to another mechanic and described the problem to him. He let me know that when there was no freon left in the ac unit. They replaced it and within one day, it had completely leaked. They then performed an inspection on the ac and either the compressor or the hoses has a major leak in it. I have no accidents and the car has less than 60,000 miles on it currently. The problem was first detected at less than 45,000 miles on it. Estimate on repair was $1500+. at 22,500 mile checkup, Volvo replaced radiator on car. Mechanic said that it was possible that Volvo dealership may have damaged the ac unit at that time since they are in close proximity. In addition, as I noticed on another person's complaint form, I also have the rubbing of the front tires when turning. Quite annoying and I do my best to avoid the friction at all costs. Doesn't occur on normal turns, just when maneuvering for parking spaces or getting out of my parking garage.
