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.

2016 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Comments

problem #1

Passenger side window exploded. We were driving on an open rural highway with no vehicles near us in the afternoon. The weather was about 75 degrees and sunny. All windows were up and the A/C was on. We heard an explosion which sounded like a tire blowing out and the passenger side front door window had blown out. When we pulled to the side of the road, you could see that the remaining parts of the window were angled outward slightly as if there had been pressure from inside the SUV pushing it out. Fortunately, very little glass came into the car as it was all blown outward. We were driving the speed limit on cruise control (70mph). As there were no nearby vehicles or people on the side of the road, road debris was not the cause of this. Also, a close review of the vehicle show no marks from any external debris.
