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

  • 50,200 miles


I have a 2002 Volvo V40 and it has 50,200 miles. My daughter drives the car. I have noticed that the car engine stalls while driving at slower speeds. This has happened to me occasionally and I can count like 20 times. My daughter experienced this and I do not have a count. I called carlsen Volvo (650 - 493-1515 X 254) in palo alto and the service rep, dan said that the car has no recall. The car stalled when I drove it to costco in redwood city for tire change on 9/19/2008. Can you tell me how I can resolve this problem before a major accident happens?
