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.

2009 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

2009 Volvo S60 AWD - when filling with gasoline at various gas stations, gasoline overflows and spills out of the fuel filler neck when the tank is full. This is with the lock mechanism engaged on the gas pump handle. I have observed this at multiple gas stations and different pumps at those gas stations. I have taken other vehicles to the same stations and pumps and filled their tanks in the same fashion, and the lock mechanism on the pump handle automatically disengages and no gas overflows when the tank is full and reaches capacity. I have already taken this vehicle once previously in September 2009 and they found no issue. I am tired of dealing with it and worried about a fire occurring due to this. The gas spills out and on to the paint on that side of the vehicle and onto the ground.
