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 Turbo V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,500 miles


my 2001 S80 is doing the exact same thing... it stalls while driving on highway and city i noticed that in the city it was after i removed my foot off the accelerator and was coasting.. I brought it to the Volvo dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong per the computer..... but it stalled on them.... when it stalls you can start it right back up.....

this can be caused by the ETM. Volvo expanded warranty coverage to 10 years / 200,000 miles for the ETM, more info here and here.
