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.

Escape 4-cyl

  • 34,180 miles


Vehicle was parked in my driveway. This happened at about 10:30 a.M. I had removed some items in the rear of the vehicle and then shut the rear tailgate. The rear tailgate glass had not be opened and was closed as usual on the liftgate. The liftgate was closed in the normal fashion. I was in the process of walking away from the car after closing the tailgate when the rear tailgate glass exploded. Nothing had struck the glass from either the inside or outside to cause this to happen. I received some minor scratches on my hand. The glass exploded as far as 6-8' behind and to the sides of the vehicle as well as all over the interior of the vehicle.
