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.

Unfortunately we were in the process of selling car when the problem happened. Volvo dealer initially thought it was the timing belt tensioner (I always have this belt replaced BEFORE the recommended mileage) but now it seems that it could be the cylinder head or worse. We are selling to the Volvo distributer who says that the cost to THEM could be anywhere up to 6000 USD (imagine what the cost could be to me if we kept it at the labor charges of Volvo)....
