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.

Over the last 1.5 2 years the vehicle 2002 Volvo S80 has displayed a fuel odor in the interior of the vehicle and close proximity of the exterior in the summer months. June of 2008 received warranty notice from Volvo that there has been a voluntarily extended warranty to cover the fuel pump for vehicles that displayed a fuel odor. January 8, 2009 I took the vehicle to the local Volvo dealership for routine maintenance and displayed the letter sent by Volvo in regards to the failure of the fuel pump. The dealership declined to repair the vehicle due to the technician could not smell fuel fumes at the time of service. Volvo has knowledge that there is a potential issue with the fuel pump failure and could create a potential safety and prolong health issues for the individuals in the interior of the of the vehicle. I am requesting the help of NHTSA to resolve the above issue and be able assist other consumers with the similar issues.
