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.

Car was parked in our carport overnight (12/24-25, 2015). When I came out the rear window was shattered. Most of the glass was outside the car, perhaps 5 percent was inside. No fallen branches, no sign of foul play, none of our other cars were damaged in any way. I looked up and found that similar incidents of "random rear window explosion" had been reported on Ford escapes, and that there was an active NHTSA investigation happening, so I wanted to add our incident to the list.
