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.

2012 Acura RDX Owner Comments

Dec. 23 2014: My husband and I were traveling down highway GA400 at approx. 60 mph. All windows were closed, the sunroof & sunroof shade were closed. Approx. Outside temp was 45F, cloudy day, inside vehicle temp was approx. 70F. There were no cars or objects directly in front of the vehicle on the highway. Suddenly, we heard a loud pop that seemed to come from the roof of the car. Since we did not see anything make contact with the roof of the car, we didn't investigate further. Jan. 4, 2015: Again traveling on the highway about 70mph, we heard a noise from the sunroof. Apparently pieces of glass flying off the top of the roof. After, we heard the faint sound of outside air coming from sunroof. The passenger opened the sunroof shade just enough to immediately see that the entire sunroof glass was shattered (partially intact, but completely shattered). Within three minutes when a safe place was reached, the vehicle was pulled over to examine from outside. Driver got out of the car, and saw that the glass sunroof was buckled upwards (as though it had popped from the inside), with a hole in the center approximately 6 inches in diameter. The glass was not broken in any pattern which indicated an object from outside the vehicle had hit it. There was no evidence anywhere else on the roof of the vehicle of any incident. It was clear that the glass had popped, potentially due to incorrect pressure inside the vehicle, from the inside out. These factors lead us to believe the incident is a vehicle safety issue, at the fault of the manufacturer. We contacted Acura corporate to file a report Jan 8, 2015.
