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.

With approximately 57,000 miles on the odometer I started experiencing severe vibrations when I applied the brakes stopping in a straight line and when turning left at speeds approximating 15-20 miles an hour. The dealer told me that the front rotors were warped because they are aluminum and warp if they get wet when they are hot. Duh! this is Florida, how can they not get hot & wet? the rear rotors were replaced at approx 30,000 miles.deel is currently replacing the rack & pinion steering assembly which apparently caused the severe vibrations when turning left & braking. This car has been maintained at deel Volvo in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines.
