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.

2004 Volvo V40 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 102008

V40 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,036 miles


The driver's side airbag has failed for no apparent reason. The cost of repair will be around $900 the car was purchased 4 years ago. That is a very costly repair for a relatively young vehicle. I asked the service representative at my authorized Volvo repair shop if I should expect the right side to fail as soon as I repair the left one. He said "no, the right never goes out." "I had one in just last week- exact same problem as yours."
