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: The XC90 took its “freshman 15” of transmission complaints and turned it into a “sophomore 45.” The 2004 XC90 saw 3X as many complaints about the transmission failing as it did in its inaugural North American model year! By the following year, transmission complaints fell back in line with the 2003. That sharp spike in complaints means we recommend avoiding the 2004.

On top of transmission complaints, the 2004 XC90 also has problems with a sudden loss of power. The lucky ones are met with a “reduced engine performance” message, while others are left stranded on the side of the road waiting for a tow.

Every winter, my 2004 X90 has a problem with the driver side window not staying on track. When the weather turns cold, the window does not go all the way down and will not close as it should. The mechanics of the window appear to malfunction when trying to close the window; it almost seems as it the power propelling the window up is dying out. I have had this problem addressed on three separate occassions, every year since owning the vehicle and the problem has returned. The dealership has done nothing to investigate the underlying cause of the problem; all they do is recalibrate, reset the window.
