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 driver's seat was adjusting itself randomly while driving. However, the controls would not respond when I attempted to re-adjust the seat. Several times while driving, the backrest of the seat would move into a completely horizontal position. Other times, the entire seat (including the backrest) would move as far forward as possible, creating a major driving hazard. I would have to pull over and wait, repeatedly attempting to re-adjust the seat until it randomly started to respond. When I took the car to a Volvo dealership, they could not determine any reason or cause for the problem. I could not afford to replace the power seat module at a cost of $850 (parts & labor). The dealership unplugged the module after adjusting the seat to fit me, but that is not a proper solution. A consumer should not be responsible for replacing a vehicle part due to faulty wiring, especially one that creates a driving hazard on the road!
