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.

Driving on the highway about 50 mph, no vehicles near us, no trees, not even a bridge around us and we heard loud gunshot-type explosion and the small window to the panoramic sunroof just exploded. There was not an impact of any kind from the outside. The glass is broke from the inside with no puncture whatsoever. Glass is now falling and also blowing off the car. The cover shade is currently keeping it from coming in the car, but not for long.
