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.

2002 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 032003

V70 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


I own a 2002 Volvo V70. On four occasions the power locks have malfunctioned. At times, we are unable to unlock the doors without the use of a remote control. At other times, it is impossible to lock the doors utilizing the power lock controls. The locks last broke on 11/03/2003. We have also had other electrical problems with the vehicle, including a power window motor failure and problems with a brake position sensor. Given the number of electrical problems, we are fearful that this car may be a fire hazard.
