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.

On 07/21/07 I purchased a 2005 Volvo S80 T6 from momentum Volvo in houston, tx. It was delivered on 08/02/2005 brand new with 7 miles on it. The following are an account of the issues and safety hazards this car has had within the last 18 months and 24,000 miles. The first issue was damage from transit - front and rear bumper had to be repaired and painted. The second issue - check engine light came on 01/14/06. It was an exhaust leak. I also complained of no am reception (fixed). The third issue - check engine light came on again on 01/30/06. This time it was a faulty leakage detection pumped in the exhaust that was replaced. I complained again of no am reception. The fourth issue - car was in shop for recall work for an electrical issue with the starter solenoid and the battery cables. I informed them there was a popping noise under the hood and that there was noise when turning left. Momentum blamed it on the tires needing replaced on a car that had 14,913 miles on it - no work done. Complained of no am reception. The fifth issue - car was at momentum from 01/30/07 - 02/08/07 because popping noise under hood and clicking noise car made when turning sharply to the left. Explanation - popping noise was because struts were not tightened originally. The clicking noise was not found, but they did find that the power steering was not working and replaced the power steering and replaced the steering rack and steering shaft. Resolved am issue. The sixth issue - car went back to shop on 02/09/07 - 02/17/07 because of noise when turning left. Explanation - frame not being tightened. Corrected. The seventh issue that they did not fix the sixth issue. I drove right back to momentum. Explanation - faulty electrical wiring under driver's seat where two wires were being ground out. The eighth issue was on April 8, 2007 - automobile has popping sound under hood again there is a metal grinding metal from the passenger side of car near back wheel.
