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

S80 6-cyl

I received a notice from Volvo of na regarding my 2010 S-80. Volvo said they were extending the warranty coverage for the steering gear to 7 years from 5 years because "there is a potential for insufficient sealing in the steering gear. This can lead to water or moisture intrusion, resulting in internal corrosion and oil seepage. This condition can result in a long term gradual increase in steering effort and noise." Volvo did not issue a recall to fix this problem since they determined it was not a safety issue. I would like the NHTSA to investigate this issue and determine if a recall is necessary as a safety issue--it would seem to me that anything affecting the ability to steer the car would be a safety issue. The letter from Volvo was dated Dec 17, 2010.
