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.

2010 Volvo V50 Owner Comments

On 2010 Volvo, V-50, we just bought my wife does not have any trouble switching her right foot from accelerator to the brake pedal, and back again, but it seems no matter which shoes I'm wearing, I wear size 12 D, my foot has a tendency to catch between the pedals. I brought this to the attention of the Volvo store of winter park, today April 21, both sales and service managers, they said that they cant change the distance between the pedals because of safety. They suggested driving with socks instead of shoes or using right foot for accelerator, and left foot for brake. I have been taught in many safe driving courses including the last 55 alive by aarp, to avoid this dangerous practice I was wondering what NHTSA 's position was on this. We traded in a 2000 Volvo S 70 gltse that did not have this condition. Thank you for your consideration.
