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.

I have had multiple issues with the suspension of this car in the past two years.- up until recently, these were the only problems I had with the car. First the strut engine mount brace and torque rods needed replacing, then at 155,000 I needed to have the front ball joint, control arms and bushings replaced. At 158,000 I had to replace the right rear knuckle and wheel bearings. Now at 189,000 I have a problem with my outer tie rods. I had just thought these were expected wear and tear for a high mileage vehicle, but I saw that there had been recalls for failures of these parts in some versions of my car. I checked with Volvo and they claimed that my VIN was not included in these recalls. But I do find it suspicious that I now am having the same issues that so many "other versions" of my model and year vehicle had. Should my car have been included in the recalls" how do they determine which ones have a problem and which ones do not" thanks
