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.

The contact owns a 2007 Volvo S80. The contact stated that while starting the vehicle, she heard a loud abnormal noise coming from the front of the vehicle and the steering wheel became difficult to maneuver. The vehicle was taken to a dealer but was unable to be diagnosed. The failure recurred numerous times.
