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 vehicle stalls or goes into "limp" mode often upon acceleration, but also apparently randomly. There is a recall for the same model of a different year described as "vehicles going into the limp home mode without need". I took it to a Volvo mechanic and he found no problem, but he cleaned some parts and charged me. It still happens and is dangerous since the car could stall in traffic. It has happened over 100 times. I called Volvo "support" and they said they could do nothing since there is no recall on that model. They offered no technical support which I thought was the least they should do. I would like to get it fixed, but Volvo is of no help. At least they should offer technical support even if there is no recall.
