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.

2013 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

Escalade 8-cyl

While accelerating away from a stop light intersection from currently being stopped, at approximately 10 mph - the passenger and I heard a loud bang. We immediately braked the vehicle to a stop and ducked, thinking a gun or something had gone off. We looked up only to find that our sunroof had burst into a thousand shard pieces above us with no evidence of impact. Small shards of glass were all over the place, however, most of them remained stuck to the tint on the outside of the vehicle. We found a safe place to pull over and calm down, as the whole event was quite scary. We took pictures of both the inside of the sunroof, along with the outside. We found no evidence of impact, in fact, the glass domed to the exterior of the vehicle. There was no glass spiraling which would show evidence of impact, just completely shattered in every spot.
