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.

2003 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 032006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


My 2003 Volvo V70 stalled while driving on the interstate at 60 mph with my then 1 year old child. I was able to restart and drive about 5 miles to a safer place before it stalled again. I was then afraid to drive it to the dealership. My husband took it in for me. Volvo didn't find a problem. It then stalled again and I had the dealership come and pick it up. They drove it for days with a computer hooked up and found that it was some type of sensor. (sorry I don't quite remember which sensor. That was 2 yrs and many nights of sleep ago) I paid nearly $400 to have it fixed. A year nearly to the day a recall was made for this very problem. I questioned the dealership about getting my $ refunded. After a few days of arguing I did recoup the total amount I had paid.
