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 T6 - GM transmission noticed transmission shifting oddly but no codes. Codes came after climbing hill, took to Volvo dealer. Code (dtc) 0053 pressure switch lock up. Volvo says replace transmission. Software upgraded - did not fix. Declined. Transmission shifts oddly, car rev's and won't shift where it needs to causing trouble with acceleration and deceleration. There is a consistent problem with Volvo's early 90's GM transmissions.
