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.

Sunroof exploded around 4:am while driving @ 40 mph. No impact to vehicle to cause explosion.the outside temperature was 45 degrees and the inside temperature was set @ 75 degrees. Left a hole 5" X 10" and glass was falling inside car. It sounded like a gunshot which scared me but I took control of the car as there were no other vehicles on the road at that time.
