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 #1

Dec 242014

V70 SL 5 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


I have owned this car since it was new. Almost as long as I have owned the car, it has had a problem with very infrequent (multiple months typically between events) stalling while at driving speeds. Similar to other descriptions on this website, it typically (but not always) happens at relatively low speeds (<30 mph) and almost always during a turn. Right hand turns seem to be more common.

I have never had a close call, but it is definitely dangerous to lose power steering and brakes in a turn. The car always starts right back up as if nothing happened.

I have taken it to the dealer several times during my ownership and they are less than no help (I missed the recall). and my local mechanic (who specialized in Volvo's) hasn't been able to fix it. Based on this site, I am going to have my mechanic replace the fuel sensor.

Other than this issue, the car has ran great for us but I will never buy another Volvo based on the lack of response at the dealership Service.
