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 control module on several models of Volvo including the V70 has a terrible track record. When it fails the car is without ABS and traction control, making the car much less safe. When replacing mine at the dealership (almost a thousand dollars) I was told that they couldn't keep the replacements in stock because so many were failing, and that the part had been redesigned as a result of the failures. I would like Volvo to be held accountable for this faulty part so that owners can have them replaced for free before their brakes fail in emergency situations.
