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.

2000 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 102012

V70 SE 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 260,000 miles


Dealer recommended complete replacement. I parked it for 4 months before doing the repair at $6,500. I wish I had gotten alternative quotes from smaller mom and pop shops because since that time I realized the dealer overcharged. Dealer put in new transmission. I had to take it back twice for minor adjustments or something where it still slipped. Mom and pop shop would have done it for less than $4,000 I have since been told. The car was worth $6,000 for parts if had had sold it. I loved the car and had it fixed anyway at 260,000 miles and now above 290,000 miles with no further problems to report.
