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.

I was driving home from work on the morning of October 14, 2015 when the sunroof literally shattered into pieces. It sounded just like a shotgun going off in the inside of the car. I did not hit anything, nor did anything hit the car. The roof "just exploded." If this is a defect in the glass, I do not feel it is fair that I pay to have this repaired.
