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.

2001 Volvo XC70 Owner Comments

problem #1

XC70 5-cyl

  • 124,500 miles


This 2001 Volvo XC70 has never failed to start until this occurrence when attempted to start it chugged horribly & engine failure & engine system service urgent code appeared the car died & repeated attempts to star it failed diagnosis reveals a non-service listed issue as we have always had this car properly serviced promptly as needed. The issue is a "throttle body failure". according to the Volvo service shop this will cost me $800 to $1000 to fix!! last January I had to purchase a wire harness for this car that was $1400!! I have read many complaints on this throttle body issue and wish to add my complaint for this as well as the wire harness I paid so much for last year. For a car that costs this much and more than 50% more to maintenance than any other vehicle I have owned in 40yrs these kinds of failures should not be absorbed by the consumer Volvo should offer some kind of compensation to help properly replace these kinds of faulty systems and bear at least 1/2 the cost.
