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.

Smelled gas in the car. At first I suspected the gas cap but it never smelled. Smell got worse and eventually had to open windows. This is a recall item for my make, model and year, BUT, if your car was not licensed or registered in a 'warm weather' area you did not get the recall notice and are not shown as covered by this recall. Our car had been in NY in 2010 (time of recall) so we were never notified. We moved the vehicle that year to VA. Volvo tried to deny coverage under the recall but a local dealer advocated for us and they covered the repair 100%.

This is a dangerous defect and you should get it fixed immediately to avoid fire and dangerous fumes.
