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.

2002 Volvo V40 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 172011

V40 1.9t

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,000 miles


So we had this apocalyptic rain down here in Florida recently and the V40 is a bit of a low-rider. No big deal, I stay on the non-flooded parts of the road since my car and deep water don't get along. But somewhere, somehow something soaked through to my flux capacitor because my clock starts racing ahead out of control. At this point, I don't even know how far in the future I am. Here (in the future) it has finally stopped raining, and the clock has settled down. But the problem is, I'm stuck here--and kind of worried about this Biff guy.
