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.

While driving at approximately 25 mph with temperatures in the high 20's I heard a loud pop similar to a gun shot and then looked back and my rear window just started to spider. I was only in the vehicle for about 10 minutes. I pulled over and there were no impact marks and the glass on each side of the window had fallen off but the rest of the glass was in tact. There were vertical stress fractures on each far side of the glass and spidering on the rest of the glass toward the middle. Ford let me know that this had been happening to F150's recently but not in new Escapes and they refused to pay for it. They advised that something must of impacted the window but would not provide any further clarification. I have pictures of the glass also and submitted them to Ford's corporation and also the dealership, moon township Ford. They still would not pay. It seems this has been a continuing pattern for Ford Escapes throughout the past decade.
