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.

problem #2

S80 T-6 T-6

  • Automatic transmission

was having issues with the transmission service urgent light coming on. Volvo had cleared bad codes in computer and said if that didn't fix it, I would need to replace the throttle. Took car in because light came back on. NOW I am told the transmission is "falling apart" and that I need a new transmission? Oh my gosh, at 60K??!! What the heck did I spend all that money for to get a good car, never a Volvo again!!!!
