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.

2016 Volvo XC90 Owner Comments

I updated the maps in the car's navigation system on 8/3/2016. At that time, Volvo's server in sweden were down. They had been down for days. Next morning, when I started driving to work, I noticed that the sensus system started rebooting every couple of minutes. As I drove on the highway, I noticed that when the sensus system rebooted, if my left turn signal was on, it would go off for a couple of seconds and then come back on. If the sensus system was rebooting and I tried to turn on the left turn signal, it would not come on. This is a safety issue as sensus system is just a central console and it's reboot should not impact car's basic functions. By the time I left work in the evening, the server in sweden was back online and the sensus console stopped rebooting and issue never happened.
