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.

Both front coil springs broke while going straight at low speed. Vehicle is not used off road. Repair required strut replacement. Dealer said this is a very common problem for Volvo. This is a major safety hazard. Why is there no recall?

While my car was parked inside my garage there was a sudden "bang". the following morning I discovered while backing out of garage that the driver side coil spring had broken. Had I been driving while this happened it would have resulted in the shredding of the front driver side tire possibly resulting in a severe accident. The reason I own Volvo is principally dye to it's reputation for safety. In fact, Volvo uses the term safety in all it's advertising. This is a grave flaw and I ask NHTSA to investigate weather this is a common flaw in the 2004 Volvo XC70 and other Volvo's with this coil spring.

While driving on smooth surface- heard a sudden loud sound as if something large dropped on the road. Car continued to drive normally except with a loud clunky sounds heard over bumps. Less than 5-miles later, when I pulled over to the garage- I recovered a piece of the spring coil which dropped: The driver side coil spring had broken/failed instantaneously. This uncommon problem appears to be common with XC70 owners- and could result in potentially serious accidents.

I had a coil spring break on the front of my 2004 Volvo XC70. I had it replaced 3 weeks ago. Tonight, another coil spring in the rear passenger snapped (really loud!!! I can't imagine flying metal is safe). I'm just glad neither incident happened while we were driving. That makes 2 coil springs in less than a month.
