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.

Just leased this 2016 Ford Explorer. It has 700 miles on it. We have not made a payment. I was driving down the road at about 30 miles per hour. Nobody was within a mile of me. I was alone in the car. The rear window exploded. I got out and checked the window. It clearly had exploded outward. There was no external source to cause the window to explode. I am a police officer, and have seen where windows explode or are smashed. The window will take a slight indent or poof outward from the force. In this case, the window was poofed outward. There was also a faint order in the car afterward. It almost smelled like the material from airbags, though clearly no airbag had deployed. I don't know if that was from the shattered glass or not.
