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.

On my way to work this am, I was in stop and go traffic due to a light snowfall last night. Out of nowhere, my rear windshield imploded, shattering the entire window. When I had the body shop look at the broken glass, they felt the heating coils might have been too hot. This was based on their visual examination of the broken glass. It cost me $450 to replace this. There are multiple sites on the internet talking about this same issue with windows on the Ford models. Should this not warrant a recall" I called Ford and they said they have not had any problems reported and there is no recall. Can you help"
