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

Feb 102004

XC70 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,685 miles


Engine failed on 2001 Volvo V70 xc on trip to North Carolina. Subsequently, it restarted, operating under "reduced power". I brought the car to a Volvo dealer in myrtle beach who diagnosed the problem as a throttle module failure and repaired it at a cost of $656. The car had 61,685 miles (beyond the 50,000 mile warranty) and was purchased on 9/9/2000. It is my understanding that there have been widespread failures of this component and that there are various actions in process that might result in recall. I would like to add my problem to the list.
