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.

My car shows exact symptoms of the vehicles involved in NHTSA recall # 09V483. Recall involved cars in the hot weather states of us. At the time of the original recall I have resided in the Massachusetts which was not included in the initial recall. I have moved to Arizona in the summer of 2010 and now my car is smelling gas as recalled vehicles. Tried to contact Volvo dealers and thy are stating since my VIN is not in the database of recalled vehicles they will not perform repair ( unless I will pay full price of course ).

Hi, just had to have my fuel pump replaced to the tune of well over a thousand dollars. Cost and problem fall in to the "unreal" category. Hard to believe that something as simple as a fuel pump has evolved into a piece of equipment that apparently as complicated as something that is vital to the launch of the shuttle. Oh for the days when a fuel pump was activated by the cam shaft, held on to the engine with two bolts, cost five dollars, took about ten minutes to replace and seldom failed. According to the stealership that did my work, in order to get to the fuel pump, they had to remove the rear seat to get to the fuel pump" I haven't had time to survey the total amount of damage they did in doing this, but do know that the headliner and steering wheel are covered with greasy hand prints and after three days there is still a strong odor of gasoline in the car. My Volvo is an 03 S80 with only 45,000 miles on it. Is this typical of Volvo dependability and excellence" guess I'm going to have to go Japanese. Comments please.
