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

Engine has a random mis-fire related to the cpu. Volvo is aware but has not produced any bulletins for an up-grade. Mis-fire can cause stalls at idle in cold weather and has potential to cause accidents due to stalls in intersections. I believe that this problem exists in all 1998 models with the 190hp turbo engine. It is annoying and dangerous.

Intermittent "stuttering" or "sputtering" problem both at idle and at highway speeds. Feels like fuel injection system is misfiring the engine. Car has never stalled, but numerous times when pressing accelerator from stop, sputtering causes delay in acceleration.
