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

I entered the car and attempted to put on the driver's seat belt. It would not release from its housing (inside the panel above my left shoulder). It made a strong clicking noise, as if it had locked up. I made numerous other attempts to put on my seat belt, with the engine turned on, turned off, car in park, car in drive, car moving. No change. I feel this is a serious safety issue. When I called Volvo, they told me that seatbelts were only covered under a 5 year warranty. I would expect seatbelts to have mandatory lifetime warranties, required by law. I am surprised to find that this is not the case.
