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.

I was driving my car on Saturday morning when suddenly with no warning the engine went into "limp home" mode. I was able to get to a Volvo dealer, who took the car in, down loaded a software patch for the throttle computer and returned the car to me.

I recently began having problems with my 2001 Volvo V70 station wagon. It turns out that the PCV system had become clogged as a result of problems with the ETM. When they tested the vehicle at the dealership they did not find any computer codes related to the ETM so they are refusing to cover the damage done to the PCV by the faulty ETM under warranty. When they clean or replace the ETM they service the PCV as part of the repair they have indicated to me that until the ETM fails completely they are unwilling to cover the PCV problem under the extended warranty.
