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.

2008 Chevrolet HHR Owner Comments

It was a chilly morning, and I drove the car almost all the way to work (I drive approximately 25 miles, back and forth 5 days a week), and I heard a horrible boom. According to GM, it was the rear-window defroster getting too hot, and causing the window to shatter. It is completely in pieces, shattered. I've never heard of such a thing, but after a little investigating, mine is not the first to do this.
