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.

XC60 6-cyl

  • miles
2010 Volvo XC60 surged on three occasions while stopped at a red light. The consumer stated the first time the incident happened, the vehicle began to move forward and the tachometer reading was 2500 RPM. The light happened to turn green before the vehicle went any further. The second time, the same thing happened. The third time, while at a red light, the vehicle surged and the tachometer reading was 4500 RPM. The consumer placed the gear in neutral and the tachometer increased to 5500 RPM. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they were unable to find a problem. Since the vehicle was a lease, the dealer gave the consumer another vehicle, same make and model. However, the replacement vehicle also surged while stopped at a red light and shot forward into the rear of another vehicle.
