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

Oct 032005

V70 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 1,320 miles


New Volvo V70 wagon. Tested laying rear seats down to increase cargo space. Right rear belt would not extend and was locked in a retracted position after the seat was layed down and restored to it's original operating position. This seat and belt were not suitable for occupancy as the seat belt would not function. Car was returned to Volvo for repairs. Unknown type of repair at this time. Phone interview update (Oct 11, 2005): The failure is internal to the retractor and not cause by interference with the seat. Purchased the vehicle while traveling oversea in sweden. Vehicle is being repaired and is scheduled to ship to U.S. by this week. The consumer agree to fax the technical report or repair invoice when it becomes available. His son's 2005 VW jetta rear seat belt does the same thing.
