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.

2012 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 312012

S60 5-cyl

  • 12,775 miles


The car was purchased new from an authorized Volvo dealer. After little over 12K miles, there is sever paint damage on the entire surface of the car. The paint appears to be bubbling from underneath. Requires $8609.66 to repair. Volvo only warranty the paint for 12K miles but advertises the car having 48 month 50K miles warranty. Volvo states that the car must be dried every time it gets wet (including wiping the car dry after it rains). They have given me the following excuses for why the paint is damaged: 1) water (e.g. rain) 2) sprinkler water 3) acid rain 4) pesticides I have other cars much older than this car which do not have similar paint damage.
