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. The contact stated that while driving at 30 mph, the windshield was blurry and unable to view the road. The contact mentioned that he felt that the failure was due to the laminate being exposed and that the failure worsened with direct sunlight. In addition, the failure worsened when driving at night and the headlights of another vehicle encountered the windshield. The contact was a certified mechanic, who diagnosed that the laminate was coming loose from the windshield and that the windshield needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 78,000.
