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.

We have a 2011 Ford Edge limited which someone threw a 3" diameter rock at the driver side glass. It was noted glass was not tempered but had a sound proofing laminate in middle of glass. Produce large quantities of sharp glass splinters throughout cabin and kept window glass intact. My concern is that you could be injured severely by the sharp glass splinters from any of the windows smashing in accident. Lastly, how do you get a person out if trapped under water when laminate is holding glass together. What if you had to rescue someone and had to smash glass, you could potentially injure occupants severely!!!!

Edge 6-cyl

On July 19th, 2011 while driving South bound on folly road in charleston, SC I was slowing down towards the intersection w/ fort johnson road. I was traveling approximately 30mph when I heard a very large pop or explosion like sound. After a second or two, I noticed shards of glass falling off the roof over the back window. I pulled over into a lot and found the rear most fixed glass roof panel (of the panoramic vista roof) had completely shattered. The local Ford dealership indicated that Ford will not treat this as a warranty covered item. The vehicle was brand new, bought only 4 days prior to the incident. I have formally submitted a complaint with Ford and am supposed to receive a response in 15 days. I had no choice but to file an insurance claim in the meantime - the vehicle can not be driven and needs to be fixed. This has apparently happened in other panoramic vista roofs from Ford, and just like in this case it happened spontaneously and without any impact from any object.

Sync/my touch console on 2011 Ford Edge locks up or goes dead. There is no way to activate the windshield defrost without the touch screen. Dealership service department has been unable to unlock screen. This problem has been widely reported on owners website for the 2011 Edges, but Ford does not seem to have a fix for it. It is winter and I need to run defrost.
