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.

2007 Volvo XC70 Owner Comments

XC70 5-cyl

When reversing out of our garage first thing in the morning, brakes were nearly inoperative and required an additional 10-15 feet of stopping distance. Unable to depress the brake (hard brake). I almost ran into a tree and hit my dog. Dealer diagnosed as a faulty brake vacuum pump switch and brake vacuum. Scariest thing I have ever had happen. Luckily, no one was hurt as we were in a large driveway and my husband was able to get the dog out of the way. Thank goodness we had the extra space. If this had been in a parking lot, I would have hit another car or hit a person without question. There was a recall for earlier model Volvo (S40 & V40) and should be for any Volvo vehicles with the same switch/brake vacuum before someone is injured severely or worse, killed. Volvo is founded on the safety on their vehicles and should stand behind this issue 110%.
