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.

S80 2.9 2.9L

Well, one day on my way to work i stopped at a friends house to drop something off. I left the car on, and shut the door as i got out. Upon the door Closing, my Drivers side curtain and side impact airbags went off. I called the Volvo dealership that it was bought at and they said that it would not be covered because it was no longer under warranty. So, I called Volvo international and they sent out a technician and they said if it was a fault of the part that they would fix it at no cost to myself. It ended up being that the airbag sensor was faulty, and they fixed my whole car for free. This included a new headliner, new airbags, the airbags being recharged, and a new drivers seat. Which ended up being a couple of thousand dollars in repairs.
