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.

I was traveling on the hwy at 70mph and heard what sounded like a shotgun blast. I looked around and heard what ended up being glass falling into my rear seat. My rear panoramic glass had shattered and blown upward in a way I've never seen before and I had no idea what caused it, as there were only clothes and a box in the rear seat. I took it to Ford and made a claim which was denied. I am confident this problem is a manufacturing defect, but Ford says this breakage would only happen upon installation due to using tempered glass. I don't believe that because nothing hit mine and still, it shattered. I also have a leaking roof, which may be related to this problem.
