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.

While braking, the vehicle vibrated. Took vehicle to dealership and the mechanic indicated there was a crack in the brake master cylinder. The ABS light illuminated, the oxygen sensor was replaced, the vacuum line was replaced, the upper torque arm bushing broke, the door locking system broke, the inside door panel came apart.

S70 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Faulty dash clips that retain the dashboard to the firewall. I was told by the lead technican at bob pinkus Volvo in Colorado springs, co that this was a known defect. The clips break leading to a squeeky dash that Volvo is not willing to address out of warranty. I now have no confidence in dirving this car as I do not know when the dash will seperate, if in an accident, and severly injure either myself or a member of my family.
