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.

The contact owns a 2009 Ford Escape. While the unoccupied vehicle was parked, the moonroof collapsed and fractured into multiple pieces as a result of an extremely small amount of snow on the top surface. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the moon-roof was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 13,000.
