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.

2006 Volvo V70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 182008

V70 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 46,500 miles


Information display on dash showed wagon rear door not closed. Subsequent inspection showed the door (gate) would not lock and/or latch at random intervals, particularly during cold weather (0 F). Trip to dealer resulted in the rear latch being replaced as defective. En route to the dealership another warning showed on the display that the third brake light was out. While at the dealership the wiring harness to the third tail light was diagnosed as defective and is scheduled for replacement.
