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

We recently heard a loud "growl" coming from the left rear wheel. The noise grew from a slight whine to a moderate growl as we headed home, a journey of ~700 miles. The shop replacing the bearing stated they had had a huge increase in Volvo AWD rear bearings of late. Models from '02 through 07 with mileage of 40-90,000 being abnormally affected. Had the bearing been allowed to get worse, there could have been deaths. Ever seen a wheel fall off at 60 mph?
