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.

2003 Volvo XC90 spare tire problem. The consumer stated while driving on a secondary road, the spare tire fell from underneath the vehicle. The spare tire had never been removed. The cause of the problem was determined to be a frayed cable that broke which held the spare tire tight against the bottom of the vehicle.

Multiple failures; door lock, tires were worn to the cord. * bf the lug nuts were replaced because they were rusted when the vehicle was delivered, the doors did not fit properly, the radio failed, the key would not turn in the ignition, the left rear door could not be opened due to the problem with the seat molding and the tire displayed unusual wear and were worn smooth to the cord. The lug nuts that were installed rusted again. (tires/perrilli scorpian)
