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.

Moon roof drainage system is poorly designed. Drainage hose runs alongside moon roof then inside car to the rear tailgate area, directly over lift gate fuse and module. On numerous occasions it has backed up, leaked into left rear (driver's side) floor causing carpet to get wet. It tends to leak in rear tailgate area over the fuse panel and lift gate module shorting out the power or automatic tailgate feature. This has been an issue for the same problem more than once, including replacing the fuses and lift gate module. This problem is the same whether the car is stationary or moving. Other methods have been suggested and tried to eliminate wetness and odor from windows open, damp rid, even wet/dry vacuum. Now that my car is out of warranty, the repair bill is mine to settle for a known chronic problem and poor design.

It was a very pleasant Friday, October 4, 2013 at approximately 4pm. My sister and I were headed to petersburg, va from charlotte, nc. With only 50 miles to go on 85N we both heard what sounded like an extremely loud and close gun shot. I was driving and she was sleeping. It woke her up and scarred both of us to death. Not knowing what just happened she started looking around. The next thing we heard was glass breaking and falling on to the sunroof liner of the car. Luckily we were only a mile from a rest area. I pulled over, got out of the car, opened the back door to stand on the inside to be able to see on top and was in total shock at what I saw. One section of my sunroof had been broken. My car has a panoramic sunroof with two separate panels. The back panel was shattered into millions of tiny fragments. The glass continued to break and fall on to the liner. Small pieces managed to get through onto the back seat. I did the best I could in cleaning up the pieces. I called a state trooper and made a report, I called my insurance company and also onstar. I spent the weekend with no sunroof because the Cadillac service dept in va is not open on the weekend. It was a horrible experience being that I purchased my car on Tuesday and this happened on Friday. It's been a week and a half since I dropped my car off to be repaired and I can finally pick it up on tomorrow. I won't complain because it could have been worse, I am truly blessed.
