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.

2006 Volvo XC90 Owner Comments

While going approximately 35 mph and in a slight turn (very mild curve), traffic in front of me slowed. I moved my foot to the brake and the brake pedal was "hard" and the brakes did not work. I let off the brake and put my foot back on the pedal again, very firmly. The ABS immediately kicked in. Had traffic not started to speed up, I would have rear-ended the car in front of me. Not fun, Volvo. When you press the brakes, you expect them to actually work. No error messages were on for the brake system or any other error messages at all. The brakes just didn't work.
