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.

NHTSA — Vehicle Speed Control: Cruise Control Problems Seal Of Pretty Good Notes: The 2005 got a minor facelift -- the good kind, not the "Hollywood" kind -- and hasn't shown much in the way of transmission problems. At least not yet.

2005 Volvo XC70 Owner Comments

I was travelling at 75 on the interstate when the car suddenly lost power down to 10 miles per hour and wouldn't exceed that speed. I finally was able to get off the interstate. It happened several times again as I was returning to Colorado springs. I have a Volvo V70xc 2001. I had to have the computer replaced at a cost of almost $1000.the situation was very dangerous.
