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.

2004 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Volvo V70. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the check engine lamp illuminated and the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was taken to a local repair shop, who diagnosed that the fuel sensor was defective and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance because the vehicle was not included in the recall under NHTSA campaign id number 07V226000 (engine and engine cooling). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 70,000 and the current mileage was 80,000.

The contact owns a 2004 Volvo V70. While driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle began to skip and stutter as if it were going to shut off on the highway. The contact took her vehicle to the local mechanic and was advised to take it to the Volvo dealer. The dealer diagnosed the issue and stated that the pressure sensor and the mass air flow sensor needed to be replaced. The contact paid $700 for the repair because her VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 07V226000 (engine and engine cooling). The Volvo manufacturer agreed with the dealer's diagnosis. They also informed her that they would deduct a percentage off of the repair cost; however, that never occurred. The failure mileage was 68,835.

I was driving alone in Napa, ca at night on Tuesday, December 30th. I signaled to make a right hand turn from 30mph (so I was braking at the beginning of the turn and during the turn). About half way through the turn, I lost all power, power steering, brakes, etc. All of the dashboard lights went on - car was dead. I was trying to brake and steer to miss colliding with a parked car - to no avail. The car came to a stop about 1 foot from the a parked car in the opposite lane from where I was supposed to be. Fortunately, there was neither a waiting motorist nor a pedestrian walking at the intersection, as I most certainly would have hit them. While in the wrong lane, facing the wrong direction (by about 30 degrees) I managed to start the car immediately, but not without an oncoming motorist having to go around me. The same thing happened twice in October of this year - I brought it to my local Volvo dealer/service shop where they found "nothing" wrong with it. I did my own online research, finding similar issues and a recall citing problems with the fuel pressure sensor. My dealer replaced that part- and it has been running without incident until this Tuesday. Worth mentioning: In each incident, I was braking from no more than 30 mph. I had at least 3/4 tank of gas (the first time it occurred I was leaving a gas station!)
