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

V70 5-cyl

A 2001 Volvo V70. The engine stalled on 7-30-04 while driving. The performance decreased and warning light came on. Consumer contacted the dealership and they told her not to worry about it since there was no performance decrease at that time. The next day vehiclewould start but would not accelerate. The engin stuttered and then stallled. Within a week this occurred at least 6 times. Consumer took vehicle to the dealership, but, she did not remember exactly what they did. Service records were available. There were no more problems again until 1-2005. This time the dealership could not find the cause of the problem. They did nothing to alter the vehicle. At this point there have been no other problems with the vehicle.
