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.

1998 Volvo S90 Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 011998

S90 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


1988 Volvo S90 sunroof has broken down repeatedly since it was new. It would typically work approximately a few times then malfunction unexpectedly with broken pieces raining down upon the heads of the front occupants, posing a danger to driving. After the malfunction it would then not be operable at all, posing a threat to weather damage, theft, etc. After repairing it several times, both the dealer (dick dyer Volvo of columbia, SC) and Volvo refused to fix it any more under warranty, even when the vehicle was exactly at 50,000 miles and less than 1 year old. Both the dealer and Volvo claimed the warranty was good up to, but not including, 50,000 miles.
