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.

The car was shaking when started. It also had a horribly loud noise. I called to have it towed to the Volvo dealership but they were closed so I had it towed to the local mechanic in my town. He checked the system and said the throttle was defective and that I should have this done by warranty from the Volvo dealership. When I called the Volvo dealership in santa rosa, ca. They said that it could be caused by a dirty throttle and I should have the car checked first to make sure this was not the case. My mechanic checked this and it cost me $129.35 for him to trouble shoot the situation to make sure this was a warranty issue. He then called the Volvo dealership and spoke to alex in service and told him that the problem was the throttle defect. The car was then towed to the dealership/service department. They checked it and said a part in the throttle was defective. They replaced that part and then had to replace the entire ETM system. They had problems downloading the new software but finally were able to get it to run. They gave me a loaner car but wouldn't pay for my charges to have the problem diagnosed. ($129). I would have had it taken to them in the first place but they were closed. This was very frightening! it took 5 days to repair the vehicle

My car had a sudden lack of power and in some turns would stall. These would cause a dangerous situation in traffic. I took the car to the dealer and they had the electronic throttle module and throttle body had to be replaced. This is very expensive and should not occur.
