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 V8 turn signal does not work properly. Sometimes need to flip the control bar for multiple times. Fairly dangerous for changing lanes or turning to left or right. Pushing the turn signal controller downward makes the signal work. Problem is consistent.

I have a 2005 Volvo XC90 in which my low beam light just cuts out. It started about a year ago. It happens all of the time now. It has not been fixed yet. I was looking for possible information on this problem and learned that an investigation is underway now and that a recall may be issued. I just wanted to make you aware of another vehicle with the same problem. I also learned today that a friend with a Volvo crosscountry wagon had the same problem until the cem was replaced.
