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.

Windshield leak just the tip of the iceberg, will often run down behind the dash into the fuse panel and short out the generic electronic module or G.E.M. which controls locks keyless entry alarm and a host of other things, most insurance companies even with full coverage will not replace windshield, they consider it a maintenance issue, they will however fix the problems caused by leak in windshield providing you have full coverage or at least comprehensive so far dealership has had mine 5 days going on 6 and no closer to solving issues caused by the leak except i had safelite replace my windshield at the dealership at a cost of 269.00 all in. 250 deductible on insurance and supposed to cover the rest,, will see how that goes..

Everytime it rains the left corner of top of roof material is all wet, then it starts to drip and it goes around under the visor too. Dont know where it is coming from for sure, so don't know what to fix.
