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.

1998 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

The ABS computer module in my Volvo failed and had to be replaced at a cost of $700. I was informed by my mechanic that it had a crack in the computer board. This car has never been in any kind of accident, so this crack must have occured during normal driving. My brother had the same ABS problem in his 1998 Volvo S70. Looking at comments online, this appears to be a very common problem with this expensive part.

Consumer states that when trying to apply the anti lock brakes the brakes will lock up and the vehicle will have heavy vibration causing the vehicle to have extended stopping distance. Dealer notified.
