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.

This is a signifigant flaw in the design of this car. The engine mount is made of a rubber compound and gets the heat by convection and radiation from the twin turbos underneath, the result is disintegration of the rubber. The head mechanic at the Volvo dealer admitted that this is "not uncommon in turbo models"!!

I am getting rid of this car, God knows how many other stupidities were introduced in this design.
