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

We own a 2006 Volvo XC90. It came with pirelli tires which lasted less than 17,000 miles. Tires were replaced, partly by Volvo, but lasted only 20,000 miles. So, two complete sets of tires and the car has only 37,000 miles. I have no choice but to replace them.

Sunday, June 29, 2008 driving on I-83 South approaching md 695, rear right tire shredded and blew. Tire driven less than 18,000 miles. Returned to dealership next day. We were informed tires were defective and had to replace both rear tires at a cost of $489. We now have concern for the safety of the front tires. We do not feel we should be responsible for the cost of the tires.

I have a 2006 Volvo XC90 SUV with only 21000 miles on it and the pirelli scorpion tires 235/65 R17 are worn out. Dealership has said they would replace them at 60%. I would have to pay the 40%. if the tires are not up to standards and wear out again I would expect a full 100% replacement. Old tread wear warranty deal. Seems this is a major problem for Volvo and pirelli tires, lots of complaints but little action from Volvo or pirelli. Each blame the otherĂ¢¿¦tires are too soft, front end toe setting are wrong, blaa blaa. Can you look into this issue? let them know someone is out there watching them and this could be a killer for someone, SUV with bad tires. Thanks jesse J. quinnett
