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.

2006 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

I was driving my 2006 Volvo S60 and the engine shut off without warning. The electrical system shut off and I was not even able to put the flashers on so that other drivers could know that there was a problem. I was able to pull the car to the side of the road (with difficulty since the power steering no longer worked) and put the car in park and restart it.

Turning radius is extremely short. Impossible to make tight turns. Dangerous to make turns when in heavy traffic or at times that turns must be made quickly.

: the contact stated while making a left U-turn at low speeds there was a knocking sound heard coming from the passenger side front near the tire. The dealer inspected and determined the link arm was broke in half and needed to be replaced. Also, the coolant light illuminated and the sunroof would not open. The dealer determined there was a crack in the radiator and the sunroof module was inoperable, and both were replaced.
