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.

problem #2

I have had the same failure 3 times with this car. Started car up after it was sitting in parking lot on a very hot day. Within 1-2 miles started experiencing inability to roll windows up or down, car started losing power and instrument control panel went blank. I was able to get the car safety off the road. It would not start until the next morning. It has been towed twice. The last time to a Volvo dealer who could not replicate the failure; no codes were stored or found. The car is back to running great...until the next time it dies.

I was driving along the highway and suddenly my car just quit the middle of a busy highway...I didn't know what to do...2 nice men pushed me over into the turn lane to be out of the windows worked, lights and so I knew it wasn't the just wouldn't start....actually this had happened a couple of weeks before, however, after letting it sit about 5 min. It started up and I was able to get home...I thought maybe it overheated but none of the warnings went I ignored it and wish I wouldn't have as we had to leave my car in a vacant lot off the highway for two days as it was the 4th of July holiday and no one was working...we went back to check to see it on July 5, and it started I was driving home (July 5) quit again at a stop sign where I had no place to turn off...of course, the steering locked when the car was scary...I then waited for about 5 min. And it turned over and started again...I drove fast to get home (about 4-5 miles) and made it relieved as it is very scary to be stuck in the middle of a busy highway and road. Luckily my husband was following me so I wasn't alone...I am over 65...I like my car but can't be burdened with a problem like this...
