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.

2001 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 272007

V70 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,100 miles


Antilock system and stability tracking system failed abruptly during breaking. No crash occurred, only the system's warning lights came on and stayed on. Lucky I was not in a panic break position as then the ABS would not have functioned. I have made arrangements to repair the system independent of the Volvo dealership since it is much cheaper and a more effective fix is possible than using Volvo parts which after web searching is clearly defective. Seems every vehicle with this system is failing at about 65 to 80K miles. My 2001 V70 T5 failed at 70K.
