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

V70 5-cyl

Driving on community street 25mph heard loud explosion. Car barely ran but got 1 block to an Audi dealer. They inspected car and told me parking brake exploded and gave me lots of metal pieces to show the Volvo mechanic. Called Volvo of North America but they denied ever hearing about this type of problem and Volvo dealer wants to charge me $1700 to replace parking brakes. Talking to other Volvo owners they have had same problem and Volvo refuses to issue a recall. Is there any way your Agency can encourage Volvo to do a recall ? thanks
