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.

During a scheduled service in 2008-09 the tech. Failed to check for leaks after an oil and filter change. The car was driven for a few days with oil undetected until the engine cowl could not hold an more oil and started leaking on the driveway. Now after a recall for a heater hose smythe service detected an oil leak coming for the brake vacuum pump and has to be replaced at a cost of $1154 (vacuum pump $995 and labor $159). The vacuum pump is lubricate by the engine and I wonder if the lack of oil pressure might have shortened the life of the brake vacuum pump, or if the vacuum pump is a problem with other Volvo cars? a $1154 cost to replace the pump seems to be excessive for a vacuum pump no bigger the a softball.
