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.

The engine light came on in my 2004 Volvo S60. The car would loose acceleration. Took it to our mechanic and he said it was the fuel pressure sensor and that it had been recalled by Volvo- recall # 07V226000. Took it to the dealer and they said that the VIN # of my car was not included in the recall. It was the same part that was recalled on other 2004 S60S. The cost was $450 to repair.

2004 Volvo S60 regularly serviced by Volvo. Bought new, well maintained, exc cond, & oil changed ever 3000 miles. Only 68K miles presently but many problems since bought new. #1) replacing burned out rear/front headlight bulbs constantly. #2) check engine light came on before 40K miles. Wasn't too concerned at first because only issue I seemed to have was hesitation somewhat when accelerating after being parked. Until one day veh wouldn't accelerate beyond a roll after being stopped for red light. A few days later driving approx 50 mph uphill car stopped accelerating and stalled. Both times I was able to roll to side of road, restart & make it home. Scared me enough though to take to Volvo next day. Fuel sensor gauge needed to be replaced. When I checked if covered under recall - found my car wasn't based on VIN, another fairly costly repair. #3 - ac fan wouldn't go off one day - fan running full blast & control switch wouldn't regulate or work. Fan continued to run even when I turned off ignition. Dead battery next morning needed jump start. Ac fan modular bad - modular repair done & then fan somehow burned out due to new modular when mechanic testing repair - now fan needed to be replaced. Very costly repair once again. #3 - check engine light came on. After months to several mechanics, checking oil, etc. Told light probably just faulty. Then check oil light blinks - car had less than 1/2 qt oil & I had major engine damage. Had complete engine rebuilt & very expensive. Engine running great. Now 2 mos later & I hear a metal to metal noise/sound when making turns - preferably right hand - & coming from rght front side of car. Mechanic can't see safety issues when up on rack. Has no clue. Noise annoying and concerning. It sounds like wheel is going to fall off car. I am sure it will cost another fortune. However once repaired - trading in. I loved my car...however no longer feel veh is safe or depen.

2004 Volvo S60 fuel pressure sensor. Volvo issued a recall for this for 2003-2004 models. My car had this problem and its symptoms (car stalling). Volvo dealership said my car did not fall into recall due to VIN # break. Volvo corporation never bothered to return my calls. I feel that I should be reimbursed for this repair as it clearly meets the recall description.

While fueling the vehicle, gasoline bubbles up and out through the filler neck, leaving a large puddle of gasoline on the ground. This generally happens when the tank is less than half full.

I have had the same problem of the car stalling around turns and on abrupt stops. It seemed to first be resolved by the recall of the pressure sensor. Recently though the car has been stalling sometimes 5 times per day when doing the same. The dealer claims it is a pvc problem that needs to be cleaned and wants to charge $1000 dollars to do it.
