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.

2003 Volvo S80 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 292005

S80 5-cyl

  • 27,000 miles


An S80, 2003 new, lost the right front wheel when the ball joint failed at 27,000 miles. Vovlvo replaced the right and left front ball joints under warranty. They said this happens sometimes. Had we not been on a local road travelling 20 mph there could have been serious injury. The steering problem has existed since 3/05. The vovlo dealership said, in March of 2005 the steering problem was do to a loose hose connection which they corrected. The car continued to steer, from time to time, like it was planing. Crown Volvo of chapel hill nc is the dealer. They have offered to take over the last two lease payments if I buy a new Volvo.
