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.

2005 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #1

Intermittent ABS/anti skid light. My brakes also seemed affected, particularly the stopping distance. After this problem happened to me about 6 times, I asked a service tech at my local dealer to find this is a common problem. Other people have reported brakes locking. After searching on the internet I found many owners of Volvo have suffered from this problem. It seems that the ABS module is known for causing strange problems caused by malfunctions mostly due to cold solder joints. My car in particular is an '05 S60 2.4 M with 118K mileage. At what point should a recall be placed on these units" an integral part of an ABS system seem to be a major safety issue, does it not"
