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.

2010 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 032010

Simply closed the rear hatch of our 2010 Ford Escape and the back glass exploded in our faces. There was nothing in vehicle that hit or contacted the glass whatsoever. There was no extra effort used to close hatch. Simply closed it as we always do (not slammed) and the glass blew up all over us, our groceries and the interior of vehicle. We went to dealership and talked to service manager who replied "it was because you live on a dirt road". I said, "so if you live on a dirt road you should avoid purchasing a Ford Escape?". he had no reply to this only said Ford would not cover the damage. There are thousands of Escapes with this problem online and nothing seems to be getting done about it. We had to replace the window at the cost of almost $500 with no guarantee it wont happen again. Looks to me like the weight of the rear wiper motor over the latch is too much weight and causes stress on window when closing.
