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.

I have a 1998 Volvo S70 which has ABS/trac light problems. I've been having intermittent issues with this where the indicator lights come on and the ABS will sometimes pulsate and it makes a terrible noise. My understanding is that when the ABS indicator is on, I don't have ABS brakes. It appears from the Volvo brickboard that a lot of people are having this issue. I am concerned about the safety (besides the fact that it is scary when the brakes start going) and think Volvo should make the necessary repairs. It appears to be an issue only on this year/make.

My 1998 Volvo S70 has 43,000 miles on it and the ABS light comes on and off, and sometimes you feel in the brake pedal. After talking to other Volvo owners they have had the same problem

ABS light works intermittently. I was told I needed to replace my ABS unit as is was faulty but ABS light on the dash doesn't always turn on.
