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.

2005 Volvo XC90 Owner Comments

My 2005 Volvo xc-90 does not automatically lock any of the vehicle doors when the car is put in drive and starts moving. This is a serious safety defect that I complained about to Volvo, Ford and NHTSA in 2005. Ford Motor Company and Volvo advertise the xc-90 as the safest vehicle on the road. Ford and Volvo have other cars before and after the xc-90's introduction that automatically locks the doors when the vehicle is put in drive and starts moving. Ford Motor Company has had automatic door locks on many of their other vehicles for years so they trained us to expect it, and then they leave this feature off! I believe this design flaw has been in existence since the xc-90 was first introduction into the United States in 2004. This is unconscionable!!!
