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.

This car was parked in my sunny driveway, ambient temp ~85 degrees F. several hours later, I returned to drive it and found the rear glass over the hatch trunk lid broken into thousands of equal parts, but all in place with no indentation or evidence of anything having impacted the glass, such as a limb, rock, baseball, etc. When I touched the glass, it crumbled into the storage area and on the pavement. The autoglass repair place I took it to opined that this has occurred in various vehicles as a result of heat building up inside. If so, this is a serious manufacturing and design defect
