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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles
: the contact stated the vehicle stalled while driving 10-40 mph on seven occasions. There was no warning prior to the stalling and the vehicle restarted immediately after each incident. The vehicle has been inspected by a service dealer twice. The first time the dealership flushed out the air conditioner in an attempt to remedy the problem, but the remedy offered was ineffective. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of the problem or offer any other remedies when the vehicle was returned a second time for inspection.
