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.

2009 Volvo XC70 Owner Comments

problem #1

Tire pressure monitoring system catastrophic failure. While checking the tire air pressure routinely, two separate tire valves broke off and the tires went flat immediately. Volvo refused to cover the repair ($100 per valve and pressure monitoring sensor). I replaced all 4 at local tire shop. This is a dangerous and possibly life threatening problem. What if the valves broke off while I was on the highway? to add insult to injury, the replacement parts (Volvo # 31302096 made in france) are exactly the same and have no corrosion resistance or rubber covering to protect them. Volvo should be made to recall all of these wheels and tire pressure monitoring valve stems and sensors and replace them with corrosion resistant units.
