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.

2005 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 192007


  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Volvo V70R. The contact stated that his vehicle would lose power when accelerating. The acceleration would "drop out" and pick back up for a second or two. It appeared as if the brakes had been applied, but no brake lights would illuminate. As a result, other drivers could not be forewarned about the deceleration, potentially causing the risk for a crash. The failure occurred while driving 40 mph or while accelerating to some extent. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they acknowledged NHTSA campaign id number 07V226000 (engine and engine cooling) for model years 2003-2004, but they would not assist because no codes appeared during the diagnostic. In addition, his model year was not included in the recall. The dealer stated that the 2005 model year was the same as the 2003 and 2004 years included in the recall. The current mileage was 42,000 and failure mileage was approximately 30,000.
