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.

On 3/1/04 I discovered that the right front tire on my Volvo V70 had large bulges on the side wall. The tire is a pirelli P6 235/45 R17 all season. This is an oem tire. The car has 7,400 miles on it. I dove the car immediately to the dealer. I was told by the dealer that the damage must have been cause by hitting something and it would not be covered under warranty. I have not hit anything with the tire and there was no there was no evidence of anykind of any impact. The dealer replaced the tire on 3/2/04 at my expense. I am filing this now because on 7/5/04 I had a second similar event. See ODI number 10080391. Having researched the ODI compliant log I have discovered that many people have reported this same problem including blowouts.

V70

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Within the first 5-1/2 months of owning my new Volvo station wagon, I had to replace 2 pirelli tires due to sidewall bubbling. 5 months later, with 12,000 miles on the car, one of those brand new tires has to be replaced again due to the same issue. My main complaint is that Volvo recommended these tires to me despite the fact that I indicated that I live in redding, ct, primarily drive on back roads, and that my main reason for buying the car was safety. They told me I was better off with "high performance tires". I've contacted Volvo and they refused to accept any responsibility or do anything to help. They told me that I must have hit a pothole so the damage was my fault but in 18 years of driving on the same roads that I've been driving my Volvo on, I have never had to replace tires for any other reason than normal wear and tear. And since the problems with all 3 tires occurred at separate times, it seems apparent that these tires are not appropriate for the local driving conditions. Luckily, this has not yet resulted in an accident, but due to the fact that I spend a lot of my driving time shuttling my small children around, I'm afraid to drive the car for fear that the tires will blow out. I'd appreciate any help you might be able to provide since I am very concerned about safety.
