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

Apr 212005

V70 2.5 D Estate 2.5L Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 80,000 miles

Mechanic encountered oil that had leaked out of the turbo (cannot remember where he said it had happened). Apparently this had happened to another clients Volvo too as an initial symptom and the turbo went on to destruct shortly afterwards leaving them stranded.

This is somebody who has serviced all of our cars for years and that I know and trust completely and works at a reputable garage.

Volvo for life.... well as long as you define 80k miles as life!
