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.

  • 100 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Volvo V70. While driving, she noticed that the steering wheel was extremely warm. When she drove three hours away from her home, she noticed that the steering wheel was hot although she had the air conditioner on. The dealer stated that they notified the manufacturer, looked online, searched for a recall and could not find one. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure and stated that the problem may have been caused by the light bulb located inside the steering wheel. No repairs were made. The current mileage was approximately 3,000. The failure mileage was 100.
