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. Notes: I have a complaint about the 2010 XC90: they're really hard to find used because no-one wants to give theirs up. I mean, why would they? This thing is as dependable as my seasonal allergies.

2010 Volvo XC90 Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 45,000 miles


I pulled down the spare tire in our 2010 XC90 today to repair a flat (I think this may be the first time we have had to do so). There are 4 large burned and melted areas (as if it had been on a giant grill) on the sidewall of the spare tire that faces the undercarriage where it is suspended underneath the rear of the vehicle. I assume this is from the muffler or some other hot metal. In addition to wondering if this is a fire hazard, I am also apprehensive about the integrity and safety of the spare tire once it is placed on the car.

The contact owns a 2010 Volvo XC90. The contact stated while the vehicle was parked in her garage, the spare tire became detached from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the technician diagnosed that the winch that was holding the spare tire in place fractured, causing the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not available. The failure and current mileage was 60,000.
