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.

There have been repeated failures of light bulbs (turn signal, brake lights, headlights, etc.)-- 12 documented from dealer, another 4-6 not documented because fixed "informally". the dealer claims the failures are due to cheap halogen bulbs now used by Volvo rather than an electrical system problem. I notice that many of the complaints filed on this make/model involve similar problems. Whether the electrical system or the bulbs are at fault, this is a significant safety problem.
