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.

2010 Volvo S80 Owner Comments

My wife and I have been dealing with orange low level oil light coming on between oil changes, in my 2010 Volvo S80, for a couple of years now. On occasion, the red light has appeared as well if I don't add oil for my wife. There is obviously an oil consumption issue that neither my dealer nor corporate have been helpful with resolving. I have had the "oil consumption test", but frankly I am tired of the run around because I live too far to keep having to prove that there is a problem and being told by the service person that it is within spec. This is a quart of oil every 1,000 miles. The tip on my exhaust clearly gives an indication of the burning of oil. What can I do to get them to fix this. I have even found a technical journal ref no. 24643 (oil consumption) that speaks on my exact problem.
