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.

problem #2

  • 5,300 miles


Stationary vehicle equipped with keyless ignition and auto engine "start/stop" feature. Vehicle was stopped in driveway. Engine stopped, driver stepped out of car, engine restarted and moved forward, damaging home and barely missed pinning driver against wall. Experienced driver, momentarily distracted, assumed engine was off, and having previously disabled start/stop feature, believed that vehicle was in park as part of normal shutdown - owing to already quiet engine. Call to dealer service revealed "several people" complained of auto start/stop feature but said there was no way to reset default for this feature - the solution was to remember to disable each time driver entered car (Volvo has a disable button on console which defaults to the auto start/stop and requires driver to manually disable each time car is started).

I was in stop-and-go traffic on a level surface street. After I came to a stop, the stop-start system shut off the engine. When I let up on the brake slightly, the car started to roll forward, but the engine didn't start (it normally does this). When I let up lightly more and quickly used the accelerator, the engine felt like it stalled. Once stalled, the dashboard screen read "press start." Pressing start didn't do anything or provide any feedback, and successive attempts didn't help. After not hitting anything for a ~minute, I finally got feedback: The car wasn't in park. After putting it in park from drive, I was able to start it. This all makes sense for a car with a manual transmission, but "stalling" an an automatic, then getting incorrect instructions was unnerving. If the car had an actual key, I probably would have tried turning it off, failed, then realized the car was still in drive, but the push-button start doesn't make it clear what state the car is in. I can't remember if I initially came to a stop or was < 1mph. I also can't remember if I applied the brakes as the engine started to start back up, then let up on the brakes, or if I only let up on the brakes once.
