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.

S60 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


A rock slide left several rocks on the highway. I hit one of them and cracked a rim. Since the Volvo S60 does not come with a spare tire, I was left stranded in a canyon road in the rain with a disabled vehicle. Minimal cell phone reception made calling for help very difficult. Volvo assumes that calling their roadside assistance (if you can) and waiting for a tow truck is equivalent to carrying a spare tire. It clearly is not and can leave driver's helpless when a simple spare tire would have solved the problem. Although purchasing a spare tire is an option, it would consume truck space that is necessary for my son's stroller. I can only carry the stroller or the spare but not both.. the car should be designed to carry a spare tire if necessary. Updated 10/9/15 updated 12/21/2015

Note ahora SE han mudado al 755 nw 20 St miami fl 33127 under name golden glade collision center, insurance knows about air bag it does not working properly, , they know about fraud, , investigator knows about safety parts, , insurance pay them with fake papers, , insurance knows about stolen money through the my accident, , insurance, agriculture government knows about unsafety car, , the auto shop, aaa of dade county in miami did only very superficial repair work on my car, although they collected compensation from the insurance company. They mention having repaired my seat belt system, air bags, and other mechanical items, as well as outer body parts, but it is obvious that these items have not been repaired. This was confirmed by Volvo, miami & melbourne (see attachment 2 & 3), and by J&J in palm coast (see attachment 4). More importantly, not only did they do improper and incomplete repair work, but there is indication that they themselves caused additional damages to my car, E. G. there appear scratches, the rear bumper is loose, the original front tires were removed and replaced with tires so worn that it put my son's life and mine in grave danger! I have since replaced them by new ones. From what I have been told at Volvo, my car has suffered a loss in value owing to "created" damages equal to at least $18,000! on 9/24/14, aaa of dade county prepared an authorization form for the purpose of collecting money from the insurance company. This report states that all damages have been satisfactorily repaired on that same date. Please note, however, that the photos, clearly showing the damages to the car, were taken by the appraiser on 9/26/2014!). it thus appears that this form was used for the sole purpose of collecting money, and not, as stated, confirming repair of the damages. Please feel free to contact me should you need additional information

No spare tires in new cars puts us consumers in danger you should be as deeply concerned, as I am, of the growing trend among car manufacturers to leave out spare tires. In fact they don't even have space to carry them. Discounting the questionable benefit to their bottom line this is a trend that puts us drivers in considerable danger. It also leaves the us consumer at the mercy of tow truck operators and price gouging by the dealers where the car is towed. Instead of a spare they provide a form of "fix-A-flat" that pumps a sealant and air into the punctured tire. This will only work with tires with a small puncture in the tread not on larger holes or sidewall damage. It also causes irreparable damage to possibly salvageable tire. The only other option is to call and wait for emergency help, which could take hours, days or be non-existent in many areas. You can easily imagine many scenarios where the lack of a spare tire, and waiting hours for a tow, could be more than a big inconvenience, but a threat to life. A flat tire on a long deserted stretch of road late at night. A flat in a bad section of the city or a section where road debris causes multiple vehicles to get flats at the same time overwhelming emergency services. For the safety of us drivers spare tires must be supplied as standard equipment on all cars sold in the United States.
