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.

The contact owns a 2004 Volvo XC70. While driving at 65 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning and failed to restart. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the catalytic converter and throttle body needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, however, the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the electronic control module needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 132,645.

Found out today that my car has a crack in the fuel pump after smelling gas the last few days. There was a recall for 2001-2005 XC70's (Jan. 2010) where the fuel pump can develop cracks in the flange when exposed to hot temps and (thermal cycling) combined with varying fuel grades. Checked with the dealer and was told Connecticut was not one of the states covered by this recall. Why not and have there been other complaints from states not covered in the original recall. A car fire can be a definite result of this fuel leak and should be covered in all states.
