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.

2008 Volvo S80 Owner Comments

My vehicle's fuel gauge has never worked correctly. We have taken the vehicle in to get it repaired 4 times in the past five years. The issue has not been fixed. I am afraid that without knowing the correct level of fuel in the tank we could get in an accident should the car unknowingly run out of gas on a highway. I have done some research on the web and this seems to be a common problem that Volvo is disregarding except in some limited cases. It seems to be an issue that could lead to unnecessary highway deaths or injuries in a car generally associated with families with small children like ours.
