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.

On the fist incident I was talking my kids to school, dropped them off and when I started to accelerate I got low engine performance light and check engine light on, the car would only go 5 mph. The Volvo dealer fixed it no charge and it was ok for a while. Next incident my husband was driving and the car stalled and said the same thing reduced engine performance. For the next few weeks after that its been stalling rough idle, reduced engine performance. We took it to Volvo of el paso on airway blvd 915 410-3254 and they said the emt was bad and needed replaced for $1050. I read about this being a continued issue and seems like it was never really fixed so there should be a recall and should not have to pay for something faulty, its dangerous.
