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.

Tire pressure monitoring system failed. On two separate occasions (4/14/14 and 8/25/14) low pressure light came on. When checking tire pressure, the stems disintegrated. Tires went flat. Replaced flat tire with spare and drove to local tire shop. The tire service mechanic told us the replacement part is the exact same part that corroded initially. Called Volvo with no satisfactory response. Said it was not on any recall list. Informed them of my concerns for a potentially catastrophic situation. After researching the problem, found there are other complaints about this TPMS senor. Why no recall?

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.

The contact owns a 2009 Volvo XC70. The contact stated the tire pressure warning light illuminated on the instrument panel as the front passenger side tire became deflated. The vehicle was merged to the side of the road and the tire was replaced with a spare. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the tire pressure sensor in the valve needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The failure and current mileage was 67,000. Updated 09/02/14 the consumer stated all 4 valve stems were replaced under goodwill. Updated 9/16/2014

Brake pads on passenger side/right rear wearing prematurely or faster than pads on other wheels, or in relation to other 3 wheels. Either brake calipers are sticking or there is a software or electronic braking problem on the car. Local Volvo dealer (only one in Idaho) indicated that the Volvo regional rep instructed service department to notify them of each case this is reported by an owner - unofficial tsb.
