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.

2005 Volvo V50 Owner Comments

problem #1

V50 5-cyl

  • 48,000 miles


1. the car, Volvo V50 2005, was driven in a busy highway at 65 mph suddenly the speed dropped to 25 mph quickly. The dashboard started showing warning reduced engine performance. This was very dangerous when I had my children in the car in a busy highway. I searched in the web, reduced engine performance happens a lot in Volvo vehicles. 2. second instance, the car stalled out when the car was at 25 mph. 3. all the problems were related to malfunction engine control module (emc) sensor and fuel pressure regulator.
