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.

Fuel pump cracked, slow leak on to gas tank causing extreme fumes, myself, 5 month old granddaughter and her mother were sick from thestrong fumes. I after that trip I found out about the recall this could have caused a fire and we all would have gone up in flames. This pump is under the rear seat where the two passengers where sitting. On March 22, 2014, the three of us went to arrundel mills mall close to baltimore on the way home to alexandria va., we smelt strong gas fumes. Even with all the windows and sunroof open the fumes did not dissipate. I called don beyer Volvo and fairfax Volvo and both stated the warranty had expired so this replacement is not covered. I was not aware that recall notices expired! I was told if I had brought the car in when there was no problem they would not have replaced the pump even for safety reasons. So what good is a recall there should be a statement on recalls " you must keep up your warranty updated on all vehicle parts". because the warranty expired in 2012, 10 years from 2002, I bought the car in 2004, the recall came out in 2009, I was stillunder warranty at that time. If I brought the car in to get repaired, both Volvo dealers service departments stated they would not have replaced the part because there was nothing wrong with it at that time. This is the only vehicle I own my daughter cannot drive and my granddaughter is only 5 mos. Old, will Volvo, don beyer, or fairfax Volvo pay for three funeral expenses, is that what it will take.
