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.

The contact owns a 2006 Volvo XC90. The contact stated that the vehicle became stuck in the snow and the rear wheels would not turn and the vehicle was supposed to be all wheel drive. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the angle gear was not working because the gears were spinning and worn out. The dealer stated the failure was caused because the gears could wear similair to the way brake pads could wear.
