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.

2006 Volvo V50 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 252007

V50 5-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


The car was purchased new and came equipped with pirelli tires. We found them flat on multiple occasions (at least 5) and had one flat while driving. No crashes thus far. We thought it to be a fault of the tires. No punctures were ever found when taken to be repaired. We put one dunlop on the car thinking that if it stayed properly inflated, then surely the problem would be the pirelli branded tires. The next flat we had (last week) was on the dunlop. Inspection revealed no damage that would have caused it to lose air pressure. We suspect the wheels are poorly or improperly made and that this causes the flats. Losing pressure in a tire for any reason can cause a crash. We have heard that Volvo has an "unofficial recall" on the wheels, but cannot find any information on this. The ODI id number : 10437484 has been assigned to a previous complaint on this same vehicle.
