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. 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

problem #1

Oct 102008


  • 31,900 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Volvo XC70. The contact stated that the front driver's side windshield wiper failed. He cannot switch the left blade with the right blade or purchase a blade from somewhere other than the dealer at a lower price. It would cost $60 to replace the windshield blade. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was designed in this manner; therefore, they would not assist with the repair. The windshield has not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were 31,900.
