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.

V70 4-cyl

  • miles
The door cannot be opened from the inside of the car. The mechanism to open the car door from the inside compartment is defective. The latch cable end is contained by a plastics housing. The cable end has another plastic part that snaps into the housing. There are clips on both sides of the plastic housing which hold down the cable end. When these clips break the cable end comes out of the housing. When the housing clips break, the inside door handle will not open the door. In the event of a crash and loss of power the occupant would not be able to exit the adjacent door.
