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

  • miles


Volvo V70 2001 station wagon. Car accelerating and traveling in the 40 to 50 mph range vibrating as if problem maintaining pressure to hold the speed. Took to 2 different dealers - 1 replaced cars main computer (was under warranty)- problem was not corrected, then problem was diagnosed as a secondary computer, replaced at a cost of almost $1500. Problem appears to be reduced but still happens. Vibration in the 40 to 50 mph range --like the car is lugging in too low of a gear or not getting enough gas-- have been afraid to take car on highway trips because it was after/during these trips problem was most pronounced.
