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.

The 2001 Volvo S80 headlight & daytime running light system. The 2001 Volvo S80 headlight & daytime running light system. The dashboard lights and daytime running lights are on at start up. During darkness there is no indication that the night time headlamps are in the off position (because the dashboard lights are on and daytime lamps illuminate the road to some extent). The unsafe consequence is that by not turning on the night time headlamps in darkness, the 2001 Volvo S80 operates void of tail lamp wife is the primary driver of our Volvo. She combats the problem by leaving the night time headlamps on at all times. When I drive the Volvo, I have a habit of turning the lights off after use. Many times, my wife has forgotten to turn the night time headlamps back on in darkness and has been in harms way as she drives void of tail lamp illumination in darkness! this is a safety issue. This tail lamp problem which appears to be a careless oversight by the design team. This is a problem which should be addressed and retrofitted to the current vehicles affected immediately.
