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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: It's widely known that Volvo’s are built like tanks, especially the XC70. So it's no surprise this beast has a near perfect crash test rating. When it comes to the 2nd generation of the XC70, the 2006 is the first year that doesn't show potential transmission problems making it a best bet.

Transmission issues, first noted in reports from Volvo dealership from original owner at 107K miles. Hard shifting, revving into the next gear. Needs a new transmission according to the shop I took the vehicle to look at it 2 days after buying the car. I have all the documents from the original owner which I found in the glove box, in which he spent over $15K in repairs for this car over the 8 years he owned it since new.
