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.

Transmission had a jerk to it when you came out of a stop. When you accelerated from a stop the engine then would stop. We have the dealer ship Volvo ( barrier looking at the problem and have fixed the problem. There is still however a small jerk in the transmission and a slight hesitation in the engine to engage the transmission.
